    In the morning I drink a lot of coffee and in the midday I drink a lot of tea. I don't eat during programming, but I do eat an apple or some other fruit regularly to take a break.

    I never eat or drink anything near the computer. If someone brings some food or a drink near my computer I freak.

    Food/Drinks arent allowed in the labs either, I guess I just got used to it.

    However, when I step away from the computer during programming its either Root Beer, Water or some OJ.

    I don't like to eat while I program, but I like to drink Mountain Dew.

    I either drink soda and water (which I actually have to start drinking more of again)...and chew gum, maybe eat whatever snack food, but I have to say, I haven't had a full meal while programming. I program mostly at school, so water and gum, but when I program at home, the above stated.

    I'm the EXACT same way. I get a 2 liter of Mountain Dew, and I'm good to go.

    i usually have sugar water.. or sprite, if we have it.. if it's late at night, i'll have hot tea, and early morning i'll have coffee. i'll sometimes have snacks or something, but i generally eat away from the computer (usually just to get away from the computer )
    If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrariwise, what it is, it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?

    Uhh well I'm really lazy and spend very little time programming... (I smoke way too much pot), but when I do it's usually water, or some random can of soda. Sobe is AWESOME too, but it's not something I have every day. (although I would if I could)

    I usually try to drink something that will keep me awake like cola or apple juice. I prefer Mountain Dew above all other sodas. There was a time recently when I tried drinking mainly water because it's supposed to be so good for the body, but that just didn't keep me awake.

    I eat whatever's around; I'm not picky. Anything from Ramen Noodles to cookies to popcorn so long as it's not at all nutritious Ya know, it's weird—I thought programming would be the sort of thing that might make me gain weight. This summer, I worked really hard to lose weight; I mountain biked about every other day. Now, after coming home from school, I spend a very substantial amount of time in front of my computer; yet, I have experienced no substantial weight gain. Only a few pounds which is to be expected during the winter after the holidays—nothing I can't burn off come volleyball season. Have anyone else experienced similar or different results?

    And, of course, no food or drinks in the programming lab at school
