Studies have shown that we tend to eat more when we're distracted -- but new research suggests smaller bites may help counter this effect.

Researchers gave a group of people the same amount of soup to eat as they watched a short video.

Although the distractions during the meal led to an overall increase in food intake, participants who took small sips of soup consumed 30-percent less than those who took big or regular sips.
