At least, that’s what a new Canadian study says.
Writes Ryan Sager at True/Slant:
1) Females chose foods with signiﬁcantly fewer calories when eating with men rather than women. (Note to Jezebel: word “female” is in the study!)
2) Women’s food choices weren’t affected just by a man being present, but in proportion to how many men were present — more men equaled fewer calories. (More women being present had the opposite effect on women’s calorie consumption.)
3) Neither the size of the group nor the gender make-up seemed much to affect males’ food choices.

If this is true, I’ve been living my life incorrectly. I clean my plate and order dessert.
