Do you ever eat out of boredom? I got up at 5am had cookies with my coffee, now i switched to beer and potato chips. While i'm eating those i think about lunch, All because i have nothing to do on this gloomy sunday. Do you eat out of boredom?

yeah i eat a lot when i dont do anything at all. it kills boredom. and we have almost all the fattening food in our kitchen. wish i'd gain weight in doing so.

I do eat when I get bored, especially when watching some movies at home. When reading, I also eat some snacks. I feel that this will make me awake. Don't eat something too heavy as it will get you to sleep. Sweets will be nice as a little bit of glucose get you more energetic. I always have sweets around me. :)

boredom could really lead you to over eating or not eating at all... you should do something to lessen it.. either find physical activities that can change your mood.

Sometimes I do but not that often. I never have time to be bored since I have two young ones.

No! Thats like THE WORST thing person can do for themselfs, their helth etc. Even for people around them. So no i never do that, but on the other hand, im barely hungry when i should eat...i guess i could eat when im bored but there is SO meny other things you can do at that times.

I used to smoke out of boredom. But now I am able to quit that habit as some times I used to smoke nonstop.
