Eating lunch in front of your PC could make you eat more later in the day, research suggests.

A small study by Bristol University’s School of Experimental Psychology conducted a small study, which found that people who ate while playing solitaire on a computer felt less full than those who ate without distraction.

Thirty minutes later, the participants who had been in front of their PCs ate around twice as many snacks as non-distracted participants did. And at the end of the test session, distracted participants had a poorer memory of what they had actually eaten for lunch.

Similar observations have been made in the past about eating while watching TV.
