I Like Eating While Watching, Strange Habit.

It's already passed 2:30AM midnight and I was busy watching a serial called I Almost Got Away. Nothing related to the serial but its all those chips packets that I emptied watching it. I actually can't remember was I that hungry that I ate so much. I have this strange habit of eating while watching television even though I might not be hungry. That's not good I don't seem to have control over my eating habits. Is this the case with any of you guys of eating while watching television, even if not hungry? Just to make sure everything is normal within me. Image Credit;-Pixabay Free Image Data Base.

I think many people would do this. You should be munching on carrot sticks or celery - not chips.

@JudyEv I should definitely do as you said and I always tell my wife not to bring in those chips packets. She never eats them but brings them for me (my loving wife) and I can't resist eating them

@nitirrbb7 I think you will have hormonal imbalance if being stressed.

I do that at times and I know it's not a healthy habit. It's a recipe to gain weight. But you know, sometimes I just did. But if I try munching something healthy like veggies, I'll notice it straight away.

@prinzcy Yeah it certainly does add to weight gain and if it doesn't it surely does to your blood sugar. Anyways I will try it the way you do something healthy

Oh..this is one of the greatest weaknesses with Indian. They eat while watching. This is nothing but adding more to the diet without doing any workout.

You're not alone. I always watch something when I eat, whether it's when I'm snacking or having a meal. And if I'm not watching something, I'm usually browsing through Instagram, Twitter, or any other social media websites. My close friends and family have complained about me doing it since it makes me eat slower, but to me eating without watching something is..somewhat plain and boring. I think that watching something while you eat actually affects how you treat your food, like for example by watching culinary shows while I eat my appetite increases. Of course I wouldn't do it on a formal family dinner, only when I'm eating alone or with a few people.

@definitelynotaziz I believe that eating while watching increases your appetite because I also feel I eat more watching then I am not

Not really a habit with me, I think it sometimes happens with people who like having something on hand, those who all the times you will find busy haha, as they eat while watching, they presume to be doing kinda a hard job as well...

When it is time to eat and I have the TV on then I eat while watching TV. I do not think that is a weird habit.

@FayeHazel Welcome to the group, so many of us with the same habit. I wish we all gathered together with a huge bowl of chips, wafers, chocolates, biscuits and watching TV and Party all night long.

Hahaha. Speaking of strange habits. There was a time I hadn't eaten anything the whole day and I had serious munchies. So I bought some fries and chicken and Coca-Cola. Then as I'm eating, and I'm halfway done, my friend is like "BRO COME WATCH THIS VIDEO IT'S NEW AND GOING VIRAL ONLINE!!" I'm like "Easay, just bring the laptop over." He walks over to the other room where I'm eating my fries and chicken and just when I'm about to have some Coca-Cola, he arrives and is like. I hear it's sick, let's watch it. He's like there's a warning about not watching while eating and I'm like bla bla bla just play the damn thing. I puked so hard I was worried my lungs would come out too because of the coughing. Guess what the video was? 2 GIRLS 1 CUP. I didn't get to 1 minute of the video. Hahahahahahahahahaha
