Can you study and eat at the same time?

For me, I can't eat food such as snack and others when I am studying, even you forced me to do it. When I am yawing during study, I did try before to do these things at the same time, but I can't be concentrate on my study. It is because I felt that my mouth is 'in motion', thus give me some disturbance to concentrate on study.. How about you? Thanks for sharing .!!

Yes I do feel the same way. I have tried in the past to eat and study at the same time, but my concentrations levels definitely drop a significant amount if I am eating at the same time. I don't know why that it, but I sure do love food a whole deal, I guess that's why my mind starts to wonder away from work when I am eating!

Hi UK_Shree, you also same with me... I have a good idea, why don't we try replace the food by eating sweet, it is because sweet is smaller, and will not cause too big 'disturbance'to us. Have a nice day..

Hello Bryan.. Snacks and studying are siamese twins in my life. I am more effective in studying if I have something to munch on. I am more focus when Im full. I think it is just a matter of giving more attention to the details of what your studying. Anyway, it has been my lifestyle that my table should have something to eat while Im reviewing my notes. Happy eating!!

Thanks Bryan for the cheesecake.. Will you also prepare some very cold iced tea. Thank you so much.. Hehehhehehe.. It is quite inevitable for me to leave food unattended in my table when im studying. Right now, since Im using my pc I have no food to eat. I have a different appetite when Im studying my lessons.

HI Bryanlee, I seldom go for snacks when I was studying last time. I prefer to stay in a quiet room with a cup of hot milo and concentrate on my study. Some people do like to have a snack while studying. It makes them more fresher with something in their mouth and won't fall asleep. This method is not workable for me. Only by drinking a cup of hot milo/coffee, It will wake me up throughout the night. I will only have my snacks while watching TV,not always too. Maybe I am not a snacks lover. I seldom have my snacks,only once a while I will buy some titbits standby at home.

yeah, i love studying while munching on something. I used to study my lessons in college with some music and foods to eat, so that i won't be getting bored and sleepy. I drink softdrinks and sometimes coffee together with junkies, i know it sounds unhealthy so i just do it very often.

Hi xannebull, I agree with you about eat can help us to 'remove' the sleepy mood. But, I suggest you to reduce the frequency of drink the softdrinks ,coffee if possible, by replace them with better alternative like sleep for a while -20minutes (if you feel sleepy),recommend by the researcher. Have a nice day !!

There are times when I find it hard to study while eating and there are times when I can't study without eating something. I find it hard to study math specifically when I am eating. On the other hand, I find it easier to memorize something or study English subjects and literature when I am eating. It helps me make pnemonics.

Hi amijor, I suggest you can study the 'calculate' subject in your optimum condition, so that you can absorb the knowledge rapidly. Your pnemonics must be very funny and interesting, haha.. happy mylotting.

It's pretty hard for me to remember stuff I read (studied) when I was eating. So it didn't work that well but sometimes, some of what I studied I could still remember so I guess it did work although not well. Eating candy or gum etc is quite all right though. They also kept me awake in my lecture halls :) Happy myLotting!

I can do that. Sometimes I get caught up in the food more. Food get's my attention more than studying. Plus I don't like studying at all. I just eat when I do homework. Than agian I don't have homework. So I eat when I read. :D

I never had any problem in studying & eating. That's the most simplest thing to do among multitasking. People can even watch TV & study at the same time, but that will be a little more difficult task. I always used to eat & study when there is something important tomorrow like exam or something like that. Happy Lotting

I also see before people can study in front of tv too, they can also concentrate on their studies. Hope you pass your exam with flying colour and happy mylotting..

Hi, bryanlee. I can't eat and study at the same time either. Eating distracts me from the book. And i do not think it's good to do both at the same time. By the way, i think eating should be a pleasant moment to enjoy your food and relax yourself. Therefore, i will not do that at the same time. If i eat while studying, i think i will not remember everything i study and do not know what i am doing in the end. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

Hi uchihaseymour, I think my style of studying is required a peace and quiet condition , that is no any 'disturbance'.. Happy mylotting to you!!!!!

I used to do that a lot especially during examinations. Eating keeps me awake while I'm studying.

This method is good and suitable to you. I can't follow this method because I can easily distract by the 'eating task'.. Happy mylotting!!!

Well I have never had a problem munching some snack and studying at the same time.Actually I have done quite a number of times.Specially on occasions when I feel sleepy and do not feel like studying at all but still have to because of the exams knocking at the door.It helps me keep awake.

I can't eat and study at the same time. Eating makes the ability of memorizing reduce. I can hardly memorize things when i'm eating because there is a sound in my head when i'm reading!

I don't like to take food when I'm studying. The reason is simple because I cannot concentrate on my studies when I was eating. And I heard it's not good if you study and eat at the same time because more blood will need to digest the food and cause you feel dizzy too.
