Never!

"There comes a point in your life when you realize
who matters, who never did, who won't anymore... and who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past,
there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future. "

I eat while I read, which might be just as bad.

I HAVE A TV IN THE KITCHEN. WE DO HAVE IT ON DURNING DINNER. IT'S A TIME TO CATCH UP ON THE LOCAL NEWS.
I KNOW THEY SAY YOU SHOULDN'T BUT I CAN EAT WITHIN MY FOOD PLAN OR GO OFF THE DEEP END WITH OR WITHOUT TV. IT'S ME NOT THE TV....LOL

That is so funny you ask this particular question. We never sit in front of the TV to eat dinner. However, last night I couldn't get away from one of my shows and we ate pizza in the living room for the first time in a VERY long time.

On Saturday nights, we watch a movie and have pizza in front of the tv. I make a homemade point friendly pizza. I do eat in front of the tv or computer when dh is out of town - bad habit that I need to break:(

Okay confession time. Unfortunately, 4 nights a week, I don't even eat dinner at home - I'm working, so I eat in the break room at work (no tv in there though.) The other 3 nights I'm home, but my spot at the dinner table is so cluttered with all the "catch all" stuff, that I don't eat at the table. Hubby & the kids do, and I usually eat in the living room (attached to the dining room and still open to them) - though the tv is not always on. My bigger habit though is to eat meals (most breakfasts & lunches) at the computer here. :(

I'm working on decluttering, and soon I'll be back to eating at the table with the family. I just need to break my habit of eating in front of this thing.

About five evenings because we have dinner during the news.

Most days. My dining room and tv room are one big open-plan room.

Hmmm. Good question. I only watch TV about 3 days a week during "dinner" time. And, yes, I eat while I watch TV. Not a good habit, I know. Just works out that way because of when these shows air and when dinner is ready every night (7:30-8:30ish).

At least my TV is in my 2nd floor bedroom so I'm not going back to the kitchen for "2nds" during commercials (like I used to when I watched TV in the parlor). :-D

I know it's not a good thing to do but I do. I think for me what would be a more appropriate question to ask me is How often to you eat dinner in front of the computer? To that I would have to say ALL THE TIME! The TV is sometimes on at the same time but mostly it's just the computer. To me it's called multitasking.

I do eat slow rather than shovel it in without thinking but not all of my attention is focused on eating.

On Tuesday evenings I work till 930 or 10pm. On those nights we have a salad or soup and if there is a ballgame on we eat by the tv. Other than that we eat at the dinner table.
