People frequently eat when they are bored.

If there is any more unnecessary way to add calories to your diet, we can’t think of one.

It is important to keep yourself occupied so you don’t eat when you are bored.

This is especially important at night, when boredom is at it’s peak, food surrounds us, and cravings are particularly strong.

Pay attention to your daily routine, and determine when it is, during the day, that you eat because you are bored. Then find an appropriate activity — that YOU enjoy — to help pass the time. It can be anything that keeps you away from food: a sport, hobby, taking a drive, exercise, a subscription to Netflix (if it stops you from eating then the membership pays for itself), video games, novels, etc.
