Watching less TV may help you get more active and burn more calories. Research backs this up. It suggests that people who spend less time in front of the TV are more likely to maintain or lose body weight. So plan on less TV time and think of a fun activity to do in place of watching TV.

While you’re at it, track how much time you spend in front of your home computer, tablet, or smart phone, as well. If you’re in front of any screen for a large portion of each day, your weight management efforts may be taking a hit.
