Nothing Like Home

eat-earlierResearchers at Ohio State University’s College of Public Health found that adults who reported never watching television or videos during family meals had significantly lower odds of obesity. Home cooking also makes a positive difference according to Dr. Allen Mikhail of Advocate Aurora Health. The bariatric surgeon says that cooking meals at home enables us to control what we’re eating by using less fat, sugar and salt. Over time, this will translate to fewer calories consumed and ultimately a lower risk of obesity. Dr. Mikhail also believes that conversation adds structure and social interaction to meals and helps us enjoy eating more.
