Is Eating Alone Giving You Health Issues?
Do you frequently eat meals alone or on the go?
Many aspects of our life in modern society require us to multitask. I am here to shed light on a very important topic. It is the fact that a poor meal time environment and eating alone can impact your health.
You may still be able to remember the times of eating around a table with family every night. In my household this was a fairly regular routine until high school. Life gets busy, the world moves faster and all of the sudden we are losing traditions that support our health.
This may be surprising, but there is a lot of data out there showing the unfortunate health impacts of dining alone.
For years, I craved the social connection at meal time. Eating with friends, sitting at the table for hours with extended family or going out to eat in a group. And as I reflect on recent years I can see how a busy work schedule and living away from family changed all of this. So it really got me thinking, how can we go back to the basics and foundations to support our health.
For one, did you know that eating alone tends to lead to a more unhealthy meal? At Women’s Nutrition Clinic, I speak with all my clients about the importance of a balanced meal time.
I highly encourage you to reflect on your eating habits
- Are you often on your phone while eating?
- Maybe eating a quick meal alone between responsibilities?
- Finishing work and shoveling food down?
This can contribute to the development of chronic diseases and robs you of what should be a peaceful and nutritious time for your body.
It isn’t just about WHAT you eat, but also HOW you eat as well.
In this video, I cover a few tips and tricks on how you can improve your meal time for better health outcomes.
It doesn’t need to be expensive and it doesn’t need to be complicated!
I hope this encourages you to pursue a more social and slow eating routine!
