Do You Eat Lunch At Your Desk?
As a person interested in food, you're probably familiar with the term "mindless eating." It describes, for instance, the noshing we all do when we're cooking, tasting everything as we go and snacking on the extra ingredients. It's also the word for eating treats while watching TV -- the whole "I looked down and the bag was empty!" phenomenon.
But mindless eating doesn't just happen when we're at home. It happens at work, too. Especially if you eat at your desk.

And when you're eating at your desk, you're taking bites in between answering emails and trolling YouTube. And you're overeating.
