Ac­cord­ing to stud­ies car­ried out at a univer­sity in The Nether­lands, two un­ac­quainted women tend to mimic each other when eat­ing to­gether for the first time. As soon as one takes a bite, the other fol­lows suit within five sec­onds. While this may ap­pear to be a piece of com­pletely use­less trivia, hav­ing this knowl­edge can ac­tu­ally stop you from overeat­ing at your next busi­ness lunch. If you’re con­scious of what and how much you’re eat­ing, it is that much eas­ier to stop your­self from go­ing over­board. This may well go a long way in pre­vent­ing you from putting on un­wanted calo­ries. So the next time you’re sched­uled to have lunch with another woman, whether you strike a busi­ness deal or not, you know you won’t be end­ing up with an ugly muf­fin-top for sure.
