Boring TV Shows Might Increase the Risk of Obesity

tedious

According to a new Swedish study, boring TV shows seem to increase the risk of obesity. In the study, a “boring” program (an art lecture on Swedish Television) led to more snacking than a fun program.

TheLocal: Tedious TV can lead to obesity: Swedish study

Personally, I think boring art shows on TV may be less of a problem in the long run, as they reduce the risk of getting stuck in front of the screen. Addictive TV shows that don’t contribute anything positive in your life are worse.

There are, of course, a couple of highly efficient solutions to the problem of snacking on candy in front of the TV:

  1. Don’t watch TV passively – do something else that you enjoy more. If you want to become really smart, watch TED.com instead.
  2. Avoid buying unhealthful snacks – so that you avoid being tempted.

Do you have any suggestions for what to eat while watching TV and what do you like most to watch when you watch TV?

Personally, I recommend nuts and True Detective. Continue Reading →
