Watch What You Eat: Snacking While Watching Action Movies Leads to Overeating
Recent research from Cornell University has found some interesting trends in the field of snacking while watching TV. Interestingly, the research found that watching TV doesn’t necessarily lead to snacking, unless you happen to be watching an action show. “If you’re watching an action movie while snacking your mouth will see more action too!” says Aner Tal, Ph.D. and lead author on the new article just published in the Journal of the American Medical Association: Internal Medicine. Another way to put these findings is that the more distracting a program is, the more you may eat. Want tips on how to watch your favorite shows and avoid overeating?
