When it comes to our waistline there are many reasons and excuses we have for the increase in its size. Most of us would agree it’s not something that we desire. According to a recent ABC news story your personality has a lot to do with whether or not you gain weight. According to the story, with Super Bowl Sunday quickly approaching there will be people who will feel forced to eat food that is placed in front of them. Needless to say, people who feel that way are likely to regret it later. If you sense that another person wants you to eat, you’ll be more likely to eat more, said Julie Exline, a psychologist at Case Western Reserve University and lead author of the study published today in the Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology. If we look back later and feel like we’ve given into social pressure, we often regret those choices. We have known for quite some time that people tend to eat more in groups. The news story does not elaborate on the types of groups. From our perspective ,in Beverly Hills, California it would seem that women who are health conscious and slim would be less likely to overeat in a group of their peers who are like-minded and of similar weight. This of course, could lead to other issues such as eating disorders, including binge eating. For the healthiest diet people should be conscious of what they are eating, and why they’re eating it.
