Eating While Distracted

We’ve all heard about driving while distracted is dangerous– are there any negative consequences to eating while distracted?

According to recent research, people who eat while playing computer games cannot remember what they ate as well as people who are not distracted when they eat. They also report that they feel less full after eating, and therefore they tend to eat more at the next meal.

The findings support the hypothesis that memory plays an important part in satiety. It’s tempting to speculate that a trend toward multitasking (including eating while working or playing games) may be contributing to the current obesity epidemic.
