What kind of food to hardcore gamers eat to not waste play time - Page 10

post #91 of 147
I don't game a whole lot anymore but when I need to snack on something I usually just grab a bottle of water and some carrots or finger food that won't make a mess.

I really don't like the stereotype of gamers and what they tend to consume, but reading over the responses here makes me wonder how often people are eating like this--is this everyday, or just every once in a while? It's neat to see some people eat healthy, but the others who eat chips, candy, junk food, etc., is that all the time? Just curious.

I don't really eat while I game. I stop what I'm doing if I'm hungry, sit down and eat something proper, and then go back if I want to. Sometimes I'll snack on a Fiber One granola bar, but that's pretty much all I tend to eat while I'm actively playing a game.

But for snacks, probably Goldfish or Nature Valley bars (the green box ones). Or scones. Those Scottish pastries, oh they sooooo good
scones are british ill have you.

Professional Starcraft players usually drink whatever is sponsored, and they use liquid meal supplements for food during training and such.

I sometimes eat chocolate at my desk, but that's not every day, and not a lot.

But a more interesting question is... How do you eat while you game? If I'm in the middle of something, I have a hard time taking a hand off of the keyboard to scratch my nose, let alone eat a sammich, because I need both my hands on the keyboard to play pretty much anything. Sure, a bit between games or when it's quiet, but more than that? No can do.

I eat poptarts, cheesedoodles (get messy but whatevs), ramen noodles, poptarts, whatever was for dinner last night (cold, cuz I hate waiting for it to get hot again), bagel with cream cheese, some sort of sandwhich including but not limited to: PBJ, turkey & American cheese, ham, chicken cutlet w/ homemade tomato sauce on Italian bread, and for drinks, I like Monster, NoS, whatever soda is in the house, and orange juice.

No, I'm not fat. I'm 115 lbs, 5'9", and 15 years old.

inb4 the obvious elitist snob comes in

I like to play my video games with a nice medium filet mignon with a side of baked potato and asparagus.

Yeah right!

Personally I hate to eat at my computer but if I had to its usually something with a fork / spoon... Hate having nasty fingers.
