If you're the type of person who really gets into a binge-worthy show, you might also be more likely to binge on junk food

Researchers found the harder people focus on something, the less likely they are to forget when to stop eating.

A study from the University of Sussex split 120 people into groups of high- and low-calorie drinks and then asked everyone to complete certain tasks.

Those working on the most demanding tasks were most likely to overeat.
