Title kind of says it all.

Myself. Unless I have some sweets (so Christmas and 10 days thereafter, or when I get a package from the US) I do not. I occasionally try having something but it gets annoying and I have to pause what I am doing, eat and then get rid of any plate/bowl I had. Never had a TV in the kitchen and never ate in front of the TV as a kid.
In a flat I had once I had my laptop on the table but if it was on it was only because I wanted it on afterwards.

Pretty much every day, if not every time I eat when I'm at home. There isn't a table in our kitchen so me and my dad eat dinner in the living room. Never at my PC tho. No food comes near my keyboard.

For some reason, I am ashamed to admit that i spend a lot of my eating time in front of a TV.

Breakfast being the exception most times. I drink a meal shake for breakfast just because god knows why, my stomach is slow in the morning. I can end up with a stomach ache if I am not careful when eating for the first time every day.

Lunch is mostly spend in front of a screen be it my laptop at work, or my chromebook (my GBAtemp/Hulu box lol). Whats weird is that I tend to not like watching anime during eating time. So I have to find either a sitcom or reality TV (mostly Gordon Ramsay stuff).

Dinner is a multitude of things. Either I eat at home with mom and dad so no TV there. But if I am with the fiancee or alone, I tend to reach for my chromebook again.

All the times. I rarely sit at the table to eat. Something I have done for years.

Basically, my kitchen table isn't used much, unless I have to work on some paper with my laptop, then I'll sit at the table, and still eat or drink in front of the screen lol.

I always eat like dinner and look at my phone watching videos. But only because, I have nobody to talk to while I eat.

Oh dude, I'm ALWAYS eating in front of a screen. Here's the thing though: I only do it to shows/movies WORTHY of me eating in front of it.

I don't just willy nilly eat in front of a TV or computer. The show has to be good enough for me to enjoy my food while I watch the show. It's weird, but that's how I work

Never.
always eating in the kitchen, which doesn't have a TV or any screen.
The only occasions are if there are guests for example for Xmas, then we eat in the living room, but the TV is kind of "background sound" with music or random game shows that we don't follow.
