All About You, Food and Games

So I thought I’d take the time to learn more about my mysterious and oh-so-cool readers. And I have a question for you: what do you eat when you play video games?

Do you forgo food in the name of conquering digital universes until you collapse? Do you eat and drink a stereotypical mix of “gamer fuel” and Doritos?Β  Set the record straight, and I hope, break the stereotypes.

  1. I gravitate towards sweet foods, like something with chocolate, and maybe some tea. Those are my favorite comfort foods and I tend to eat them when I’m relaxing, like when I’m playing video games. πŸ™‚

    • Sounds like a good combination. Also, sorry about how long it took me to respond. I’m keeping busy, and for some reason, WordPress did not approve your comment even though I had set your comments to appear automatically.

  2. I usually drink a flavored seltzer these days and snack on popcorn. Though my most common day of gaming is Yom Kippur. They really help me ignore a full day of hunger even if the health items are all food related.

    Although I am a fatso, I don’t tend to snack whilst gaming as I need mu hands free. Hmmm perhaps if I increase my gaming time I can lose weight?

  4. I drink fizzy water and my Saturday gaming is accompanied by pizza, aside from that I generally don’t eat very much while gaming, I’m usually too into the game. πŸ™‚

  5. I generally stay away from food while gaming (too much to think about, eating and gaming at the same time!), though I have managed the occasional light snack that’s not messy/greasy — popcorn, mixed nuts, apple slices. The one thing I’m okay with during gaming is coffee. Then again, I’m okay with coffee any day, all the time.

    • Yep, you and I are pretty close on food while playing. I’m okay with coffee all the time too, but curiously enough, I find I never need it while playing. Games usually get my adrenaline going. πŸ™‚

    I usually don’t eat, but I like to have something to drink (water, pepsi Max) when I’m gaming. Very seldom I have chips and nuts and stuff like that, but that’s only when I’m gaming with friends and family.

    • Sounds like me. Do your habits change when you do a “marathon gaming session” (That is, if you do those kinds of marathons at all.)?

        It happens, on occasional saturdays or sundays, then the food I eat is pizza and I snack on cookies and chips, together with diet soda, spread out through the day whenever the intensity gets lower.

  7. I drink anything from Coke, orange juice, to water lol. Never eat though, and never have. I have a weird OCD problem with getting my controller dirty and stuff.
