Do you eat in front of the TV?

I shamefully admit that we sometimes do eat in front of the TV and that can't be healthy and was wondering if you do and what exactly do you eat? Is it just snacks, junkfood or whole meals?

In day time, I take lunch outside. At the time of dinner, I and my other family members are foced to eat while watching TV, because several serials are played from 9 a.m. to 10.30 and we really do not want to miss these serials. I know the impact of this: we tend to eat more, not knowing how much we are eating and invariably land up being obese.

Until a few months ago; I used to eat always in front of the TV. At present, most times I don't do it, although this same night I did.

I still eat everyday in front of the television. I know I shouldnt but I cant help it. It is easier because I always eat alone, my boyfriend usely comes around 20.00 at home and I eat around 18.00 and I dont like it to eat alone at the table so I still eat it for the television. Stupid me.

Apparently it's not because people tend to eat more and it's bad for digestion. I'm not one to judge though last night I was eating in from my computer working LOL.
