ABSTRACT
The more you watch television, the fewer calories you bum. And the more you nibble, the more fat calories you pack onto your abs, butt and thighs. To make matters even worse, some psychologists believe you eat faster, and consequently more, because focusing on the television triggers rapid eye movements, which stimulate you. The solution is, move while you watch. Sneak in sets of cardio and strength moves during your favorite shows.
