Nix Noshing in Front of the TV

While many of us don't want to miss the newest episode of "The Bachelor" that's airing right in the middle of dinner, eating in front of the television is a mindless activity that you should avoid at all costs. You're likely to consume lots more calories in front of the boob tube than if you dined at the dinner table instead.

So, set your DVR to record, and join your man in the kitchen. Create a cozy atmosphere at the table by lighting a couple of candles, and enjoy your dinner while you discuss your days and catch up with each another. "The Bachelor" will be waiting on you when you're finished, and you can fast forward through the commercials!
