Watching an action movie is worse for your waistline than switching on a talk show, new research has found.
A study found that viewing choice has a direct effect on the amount of snacks people consume in front of the TV.
Volunteers gobbled twice as much while glued to a fast-paced action thriller than when they were entertained by celebrities being interviewed.
Lead researcher Dr Aner Tal, from Cornell University in the US, said: "We find that if you're watching an action movie while snacking your mouth will see more action too.
"In other words, the more distracting the programme is the more you will eat."
Despite all being offered the same snacks, volunteers watching the action movie also consumed more calories - 354 compared with 215 for participants screened the chat show.
