A Note To Men: Your Date is Making You Fat

Categories: Food News, Whimsy

They've been eating out quite a bit.
Turns out who you sup with could effect your waistline as much as when and what you eat. The Huffington Post points us to a recently released study published in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology.

In doing the study, researchers hoped to gain understanding of how body image and gender of dining partners affects the eating habits of women. The study hypothesized that "the attempt to appear feminine will be empirically demonstrated by the purchase of fewer calories by women in mixed-gender groups than by women in same-gender groups."

In other words: Put one dude at the table and most ladies will reconsider that second hot dog. Sort of obvious, right?

But while finding that initial hypothesis to be true, researchers additionally turned up unsuspected eating habits in men, who seem to think eating large quantities is a way to impress the ladies. Men in mixed gender groups consumed on average 200 more calories than when eating in same gender groups.

What the report neglects to spend sufficient time on is that the food used in the study was supplied by Aramark, the university's food-service provider and the company that's responsible for serving terrible hot dogs in baseball stadiums across the country. If Aramark's involved, we should all be eating less.

I'd like to throw in my two cents on this. The study is flawed because when women go out with women, they have to pay for the food. When a guy takes them out, they can order whatever the hell they want. A couple of the wife's friends never order any food when they go out with other women, they drink water and peck off of bread and or scraps. Kinda genius in a way when you think about it.

and to that point, i will consume on average an extra 200 calories if she's picking up the tab

Good question. Are you talking consumption of meal pre-coitus or overall weight in general?

Yep I'd go with that one. I don't think she's a dancer, probably a financial analyst or a teller at a bank. she's skinny up top but has big thighs so I'm thinking she might have been a softball or volleyball player.  She's been with the guy since he was about half that size, either in hs or college, and no other guys look at her except when she has a bikini on.

Nah he doesnt' look that old, you lose. The one on the left doesn't look too happy though.

Neither.  They are both his daughters.  Otherwise, they wouldn't be that close to him.

What do I win?

I'd say the one on the left, little heft..probably took her away from her dancing job..now she gets her former co-workers to go the lake with them and Richie...for $500 bucks, Alex.

Out of those two girls, which one has that guy banged and why would you say so? I mean, it's obvious to me, I just want to get your line of thinking on this one.

If I know we're going for happy fun time later, the wife and I usually split a plate. Another great dining idea for el sexo is a fondue place.
