If you're anything like us, you're probably resigned to the fact that devouring half (or more) of a pizza is, well, the right way to eat a pizza. But if you're a guy, the amount of food you eat might have more to do with who you're dining with than your actual appetite, according to new a new study out of Cornell University.
Published in the journal Evolutionary Psychological Science, the study finds that men eat way more food when they're in the company of women than they do when they're in the company of other men, according to a press release.
Over the course of two weeks, researchers observed 105 adults who ate at an "all-you-can-eat Italian buffet" and recorded how many slices of pizza and bowls of salad each person ate, and the genders of the people and their dining partners. The men who ate with at least one woman chowed down on 93% more pizza and 86% more salad than men who dined with only other guys.
