Yes you can!! Prepare ahead.
I had fruit to shove in my mouth (strawberries, bananas etc), instead of junk food. I had a gallon on water ready to refill my glass.
I had carrots, and grape tomatoes (etc.) to grab.
And my secret diet weapon is JELLO. The one that has only 10 calories (no sugar). I made two packages ahead of time, again prepare ahead, and put a pint of fresh blueberries in there. I sprinkle protein powder on the ready jello before I eat it.
That being said, Jello cools you down (its summer), refreshes and you can eat it while you are zoning.
Breaktime is bathroom time. I'm not hardcore, so no pampers for me!
What do you eat while playing? Any ideas to throw into the heap?
Oh boy! I'd love to really lay into this right now, but I'm short on time.
Firstly, it's your body and you're more than welcome to do with it what you please, but man, Jell-o? Hell-no!
JELLO, SUGAR FREE, LOW CALORIE

You're ingesting so many chemicals and minerals that are known to shut down certain functions in the body! Don't get caught up in this era of "LOW FAT, NO FAT" ************** terrible and will lead to so many problems as you age. Our current youth in America is a like a laboratory test in which we've fed them HFCS among other products and we've produced a fat, lazy, balding cross-species of a 'once strong' gene pool..
I love to see that you have fruit as well, but you should read into 'what fruits' provide 'what' There are different antioxidents out there and varying levels/types of fibers. Because most all fruits are high in sugars and want to be eaten not only sparingly but at choice times(IE, right after a workout/run/strenuous activity)
If you're looking for a truly "low calorie" snack, give celery a shot. Little 'all-natural' peanut butter goes a long way on those! You can add fruit(sparingly, again) to that mix as well as matching it with loads of other options.
Snacking daily, consistently isn't a great choice in the first place. Regular, small in portions meals will net you the greatest weight-loss while properly providing your body with the necessary vitamins and minerals.
For example, a day in my life:
6AM: 4 egg whites, Chicken Sausage, two pieces of whole wheat bread with almond butter
8:30AM: Handful of almonds and a protein shake
11AM: Sodium Free Turkey on whole wheat with spinach, mustard, onions= The works!
2:30PM: Protein shake and a light snack(if necessary)
5-6PM: Chicken breast with brown rice and vegetables.
10PM: Pre Sleep Protein Shake
I also supplement with a QUALITY Men's Multivitamin and a Fish oil, 3x a day. And to note, the above varies a bit on heavy workout days(more carbs, no additional proteins/fats generally.)
And of course WATER! All day everyday, outside of beer and wine- water is literally the only fluid I ingest. If you're a person looking to bulk up, add whole milk to that list and learn to love it!
And lastly, nothing beats exercise! Sitting takes years off your life!(I'm saying this on an MMO forum haha, but it's being tied to many health issues as the 'average person at a desk' is sitting longer with less breaks) But unless you have some disease or inability to stand, you can convert your desk into a "standing desk" Regardless though, you should be getting up every 30-45 minutes and take a quick walk around(not just to the bathroom hah)
OKAY! That was much more long winded than I anticipated but I am very passionate about health and I hate misinformation and "schemes" and shortcuts.
