Eating and Gender

On my way to the airport, I heard about the following weird study on the radio. This study determined that when women eat in the company of men, they try to eat healthier food. When women eat in the company of other women, however, they tend to indulge and eat whatever they want.

All of this sounds completely wrong. From my observations, women are much more likely to eat less and healthier food in the company of other women simply because women notice these things more. Too many women are weight-obssessed. Men, on the other hand, are less likely to notice what happens on another person's plate.

I just ate a chicken fried steak last night in front of my fiance. I feel okay about that. :-)

Interesting observation particularly since it is broken along biological lines as opposed to the individual. I have heard the female body is prone to storing unwanted fat more so than a male body. Isn't nature wonderful? I guess the answer lies to always eat in the company of a man.
