Recommended Videos to Keep Your Mind Off Food

Just saw it this weekend: Deadpool 2. Absolutely laugh out loud funny if you're into that kind of movie. (We are.) One of the few sequels as good as the first movie. And yes, they are comic-book characters, but this is NOT a family-friendly film! Do not watch with your 7 year-old.

Absolutely nothing in the film to trigger food cravings!

Had not been to the theater in quite some time. Last Tuesday my wife wanted to go see a horror film (she has a thing for them, almost an addiction). I hate them but figured, why not. We went to the Dine In theater because there was some kind of deal/discount that night. My wife ordered food and everyone surrounding us was eating. I was completely fine with my focus, during almost the entire movie, on Bubble Witch Saga on my phone. It was excellent, the movie was SOOOOOOOO bad and boring I let my phone distract me from everything, including the food.

Slender Man if you were wondering.

One of my boys went to ComiCon dressed as Slender Man. Was a major pain to pee wearing a full body suit under a suit! He got some great pics, though!

I just went I see Searching staring John Cho and Debra Messing (unexpectedly great movie) with my sister as an early birthday celebration for her. She had froyo and I had iced coffee, I don't think there were any eating scenes in the movie. She and I both commented on how absolutely intoxicating the popcorn smelled, neither one of us was hungry, which further convinces me they are adding addictive chemicals to the mix...

Yeah, and I was being really loud yelling during the whole thing.

It was an eat in theater so it wasn't nearly as dark as normal theaters. The lighting there to make it able for you to eat out shined the light from my phone 10 fold.

I read the book, hated it. Nothing blew up. Yeah, I'm shallow. I know ;) and I need constant, over-the-top entertainment. No chick-flicks for me.

Baywatch - on Amazon Prime. Zac Efron is a nice distraction from food. :) And surprisingly I actually thought it was a pretty good movie overall.

Thanks for that. I was sweating there for a minute. Felt like I was back in the theater getting yelled at and about to get my ass kicked. ;)
