Eat more with company-Sr.3-Jun.9

Why you eat more when you’re in company

Why you eat more when you’re in company
It seems to be clear that people eat more with others than alone. Of course. When people eat in a group, they most likely gather to enjoy the company, time and meal. In other words, they are there to eat longer. The longer time you spend on eating, the more food you dine. Also, you tend to be indulged in more food than you usually eat when others are enjoying a larger portion of meat, extra pieces of pizza, or sugar-rich dessert. According to a food researcher, this phenomenon is called social facilitation. But is it really a bad habit?
When food was scarce and limited, people like hunter-gatherers shared whatever food available and edible. Also, sharing food gives chance to balance nutrition. So, social eating isn’t that too bad for your diet as long as you manage your appetite. 
There is another tip. People tend to eat more when they are accompanied or served by heavier people. Is that because they want to grow to match the others in size?
