Maybe those clickbait thumbnails or titles peak the initial interest and then you choose to read the synopsis or summary. I remember hearing how Youtubers need to put a lot of effort into their thumbnails and titles to get the initial click to get more views

I did/do eat while watching anime or reading novels as you either don't need to do anything or just need to scroll down every once in a while, but I'm currently trying to stop doing that.

If it's a really interesting scene, I'm gonna be distracted as hell. So, um, ye.

Nonetheless seeing the results, the answer isn't as obvious as I felt it was… I do eat often when reading mangas or watching something and even more so, I do those things when eating rather than the other way around. I've been living alone for a few years and I've pretty much made it a tradition to always watch something or read.
I don't watch much anime nowadays but it used to be my main meal companion in the past. I would launch an episodic show like Cromartie and I would end up lengthening my meal enough to last two episodes usually, including making tea and some dessert. Now, it's mostly reading mangas exclusively or, if I have a video I needed to watch, doing so.
What do people who only eat think about this? I feel like it's a waste of time (if you're eating alone, that is, but I would say the same if you're eating with other people and not talking). Though at least you don't spend a good hour eating and doing unplanned things. Sometimes I also like to just finish my meal quickly.

But you eat less because you realize sooner when you are full, you enjoy the food more because it's actually your main focus, and if you eat with people (you like), it's more enjoyable to eat and chat. So, pros and cons, it really depends on your personal preferences.
