Your Girlfriend Is Making You Overeat, According to Science

Your Girlfriend Is Making You Overeat, According to Science


It's a dearly held old wive's tale that the second a guy gets married, he starts putting on weight. Well, it turns out the old wive's tale is completely false. You start putting on weight the second you start dating somebody.

The study found this: men tended to eat less when they were hanging out with other men, but started shoveling food down their pieholes like it was going out of style when around women. To be fair, this cuts both ways: women tend to eat more when they're around women, but tend to eat less when around men.

So, why, precisely, are you becoming a fatty while your girlfriend dreams of the cheeseburger she's going to eat when you're not looking? Cultural expectations. Essentially, guys have been conditioned that eating a bit more around women will impress them (gee, thanks, Mom), while women have been conditioned to believe guys will start making oinking noises at them if they have anything other than the light salad and the diet water.

OK, OK, so the differences were about a hundred calories a meal. Still, it's important to remember that if you need watch your weight, you don't need to impress your girlfriend by eating an entire pile of chicken wings. A half pile will be more than suitable.
