5 Unhealthy Snacks to Avoid While Gaming

GamerFitNation's intern Fidan writes about 5 unhealthy snacks to avoid while gaming. "Every gamer loves to sit down in front of their console or computer with a snack or two. Unfortunately, the snacks gamers choose are usually very unhealthy. This is the reason gamers are normally perceived as overweight and lazy. Here is a list of the top 5 snacks to avoid while gaming, with some healthy substitutes." (Culture)

I don't eat the last three on the list, but the first two are common for me, though I'm beginning to replace the chips with sandwiches and soda with some pineapple punch.

I don't eat any snacks while i'm playing. How the hell am I supposed to keep the controller in my hand, and not get crumbs in it? Damn, do one thing at a time.

What really pisses me off are the people that eat chips while they talk on the mic, especially in game chat. SHOW SOME COMMON CURTOSY FOR PETES SAKE!!!!!!!!!!

I hate the sound more than the idea they're eating while on the mic; I've met some people who mute while eating (I just turn the mic off until I'm finished).

But if we take away 1&2, how will gamers get their Double XP? :(

Delicious Dewritos.

I'd love to see Microsoft offer Double XP for celery sticks and water. Imagine how much healthier gamers would be!

Well I guess Sony's Subway X Uncharted 3 Promotion was a step in the right direction. Who knows, maybe we'll someday be able to win PS4s by buying Hidden Valley or Green Giant. XD

Who am I kidding that's not gonna happen.

Bubs!!!

Yes, banning one and two would be akin to causing the extinction of the elusive, endangered Geoff Keighley! Save the Geoff Keighley!

Red Bull, the drink of champions

OT

I eat trail mix and drink flavored water if I know I'm gonna game for a long time.

As long as you stay away from Pizza, Roman Noodles,Slim Jims, Mountin Dew and KFC you should be good to go.

Usually when I get the cravens during my gaming session I look at a picture of Gabe Newell and ask my self if that is how I want to live life :( sad and hope one day Gabe finds it in his self to fight the urge for junk food.

You should chew gum while you play games.
I've noticed that it calms you down during gun battles.

I never snack when I play games.

Well, I sometimes bring my lunch/dinner to the gaming room but even then I pause the game and take my time eating.

Exactly what I do. I don't half ass it.

I'm not scientist, but I don't think food has too much of an effect your performance while gaming. Unless you starve yourself.
