Dining partners mimic each other's eating behavior

Washington, Thu, 02 Feb 2012 ANI

Washington, Feb 2 (ANI): Your dining partners can influence your eating behavior and vice versa.


A study has revealed that when sharing a meal with someone and we are likely to mimic each other's behavior and take bites at the same time rather than eating at our own pace.


This behavior was found to be more prominent at the beginning of an interaction than at the end.


This study, led by Roel Hermans of Radboud University Nijmegen of the Netherlands, provides some insight into the previously established phenomenon that the overall amount of food people eat is correlated with the intake of their eating companion.


For the finding, the researchers observed the behavior of 70 pairs of young women eating together and recorded their bites, which totalled almost 4,000.


They then analyzed whether people mimicked each other's food intake.


The study has been published in the Feb. 2 issue of the online journal PLoS ONE. (ANI)
