Researchers at Cornell University studied 133 adults to compare who eats more or less on a date and it was found that men eat more food when they are trying to impress women. We would probably deplore the fact that women would eat a small bread stick on a date and say that they had a big lunch when really we had a Big mac for lunch.
They studied couples going to a pizza buffet and it was researched that, heterosexual men ate 93% more pizza than they did when they ate with a man. Why do we ask? Apparently, it’s because men want to show off and impress women with their eating skills. Makes sense?
You probably might be thinking that food can put you in a sexual and sensual mood for example; hot melting chocolate cake. Even the melted cheese on the pizza might make this happen. So maybe because of this, it is to why men eat more. The researchers also checked to see if the men eat more if the food type changed. This is true. Men ate 86% more salad when they were dining with women. There are many ways that men try to impress women and eating massive quantities of food is an unusual way of trying to show off to the female sex…..Kevin Kniffin, visiting assistant professor and lead author of the study, stated to the LA Times.“These findings suggest that men tend to overeat to show off” and added “Instead of a feat of strength, it’s a feat of eating.” It may also be to show their physical fitness which may be a periodic conclusion to draw from a pizza binge. “People should calm down when eating with members of the opposite sex.” The study affirmed.
