A recent study suggests that people tend to overeat when thinking intensely. It makes sense, I guess, because if you are that involved in activities of the mind, you are probably less apt to notice you’ve eaten an entire bag of potato chips. On the other hand though, I work in an academic setting and I wouldn’t say we overeat here at all. In fact, I know numerous people who are so into what they are doing and thinking about that they forget to eat alltogether. What intelligent thinkers would not do though, is commission a study of this nature, that proves nothing substantial and is a giant waste of money.
