This is because, in spite of what you may claim, no one's really good at multitasking. It's not that you can't do both, it's just that you can't do them both well. Focus on eating, then focus on Game of Thrones.
Do learn proper portion sizes
While it's important not to become obsessive about measuring and weighing your food (remember that whole restriction thing?), it's equally important to learn proper portion sizes, especially since our society is pretty convinced that bigger is always better.
As a simple guideline, Bass says every plate should be half filled with a lean protein, with the remaining half consisting of two-thirds non-starchy veggie (like broccoli or a spinach salad) and one-third complex carb (like long-grain rice, beans, or potatoes).
Don't look for "easy buttons"
Put simply by Bass, "Easy buttons don't exist." There is no quick fix, no miracle diet or drug. Your body has taken years to develop a comfortable "set point" for your weight, and it wants to stay there. It's grown accustomed to your nutritional habits. Logically you know that change is hard, but it's hard physiologically, too. Your body doesn't like change, and it will fight against it.
