A group of researchers from Cornell University established that in the presence of women men consume more food and tend to overeat. Researchers monitored how much food people consume in various conditions, including the company of people who share the meal.
Just experiment was attended by 150 men, who offered to dine at the pizzeria. The neighbors on the table the volunteers were constantly changing, and scientists during the experimental lunch was recorded, how much food eaten every person.
If a man sat next to the woman, he ate, on average, almost twice as much pizza and a light salad. The appetite and desire to fill the stomach significantly decreased when men went out to lunch with work colleagues. The women always ate the same portions, and the surroundings had no effect on appetite.
