Mind Your Dining Companions
It’s best to eat alone, assert scientists, and eating with just one more person can see you eating as much as 35 percent more food. Eating with a group of people can increase consumption by 96 percent.
Eating with others pushes you to eat more because it increases the time that you spend eating. While others are finishing their meals, you may be tempted to peck away mindlessly and/or order dessert.
