They say its not good to eat or snack while watching tv because you'll usually overeat, you don't pay attention to what your eating while watching the tv, or even when sitting in front of the computer. I've been guilty of doing that a time or two.

That is a real observation. Habit of munching something while watching TV or for that matter deeply engrossed in any activity like watching movie, games, or reading books or going through files on a job is bad for health, violating all the principles of healthy eating.

Well, you should be ashamed of yourself and change your ways right away! Hahaha. I think you should enjoy yourself. Look at all the stuff you do do if you have a family and you deserve to have a smoke(Ugh!) and your treats too. ENjoy! You only go through once and you might as well enjoy it.

having some snack while watching TV is okay but smoking, that I don't like. I like to eat french fries while watching anything in TV or in my laptop

I actually don't tend to eat while I am watching television and I never multitask with the internet while I'm watching television. The only think that I do that is a multitask when I am watching television is that I will roll our daily smokes while I'm watching television just before I will go to bed. I think that the reason that I do this is because of the fact that it is a repetitive thing that is relaxing to me.

I also love to do things while watching tv. Sometimes i clean my nails and color it while watching tv. It's more like a habit. Sometimes also i love eating snacks while in front of the monitor while texting my friend and looking out for my baby sister in one time. It's more like a multitasking that i just don't notice. Cause i think if i'm not doing anything and just watch movie alone then i'll end up snoozing.

It's nice that our brain can do multitasking. Respond to discussions and earn and at the same time while watching

I usually have the TV on in the background while doing things like mylot or Facebook on the Internet. I used to do school homework with the TV on back in the day. I think I was raised on TV.

You need to distinguish what is right and wrong. 1. Sitting for a long time on the computer you will spoil your eye sight. 2. Sitiing for a long time you will put on weight. 3. Wathchig the idiot box will not benefit you in any way. 4. You the benefits of smoking, you will not live long to see the pain. You can do something creative than destructive.

that's normal when watching tv or film but some who are on deit don't do that cause when you eat while you are watching something, you don't notice how much you eat. it may lead you to overeating.

They say it is not good to eat while you watch TV. If you are watching your weight or trying to lose weight, you tend to overeat. You are so focusedon the show, you don't pay attention to what you are eating. I eat while watching TV all the time. I just take in the room what I want to eat. I don't take the whole bag of pretzels, because I will eat them all. I am to lazy to go get more, so I just take some with me.

My laptop sits on a table in the lounge room so I tend to kill 2 birds with 1 stone - earn money online while I'm watching tv...the only thing is, I tend to get too carried away here with mylot & miss out on my programs like Neighbours, Home & Away, etc.

Hi, jugsjugs. There is nothing wrong with having snacks while watching TV. It keeps the movie going in an excitable mode. I know that my husband works on creating his website while an movie is playing in the background. When I am watching a movie, I need for the atmosphere to be very quiet and free of any annoying noise that would distract me.
