Unhealthy eating patterns 

Mindless Eating

Cornell University food psychologist Brian Wansink, PhD, found that larger plates and bowls cause unintentional overeating. Wansink revealed in a recent study that moviegoers given extra-large containers of stale popcorn ate 45% more than those eating fresh popcorn from smaller containers.

Nighttime Noshing

Diet folklore says eating at night is virtually never a good idea for weight loss. Many experts claim this ancient saying is fiction, but a new animal study shows that what and when you consume matter. 

Endless Snacking

A common unhealthy habit is nibbling 24/7 on high-calorie, empty carb items. A University of North Carolina study found that youngsters are munching more on unhealthy junk food such salty chips, drink, and candy.

Skipping Breakfast

You know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet you may not have time to eat due to other obligations. Crandall says skipping meals slows your metabolism, and breakfast gives you energy throughout the day.

Emotional Eating

After a tough day at work, you snack from the fridge, which is harmful for your diet. “You put food in your mouth as a coping mechanism,” Crandall explains. Studies show that good and negative emotions can cause overeating, a common weight-loss obstacle.

Eating Too Quickly

Your brain doesn't have time to catch up with your stomach when you're wolfing down meals. Your brain doesn't register fullness until 15–20 minutes after eating. Swallowing your meal in 10 minutes or less may lead to overeating.

Not Getting Enough Sleep

Poor sleep could damage your weight-loss efforts. Yes, according to Tokyo researchers' analysis. Men and women who slept five hours or fewer were more likely to acquire weight than those who slept seven.
