Mimic eating

  • When I was a kid, I used to spend hours listening to Adam Carolla and Dr. Drew Pinsky on their Sunday night call-in radio show Loveline.
  • (Huffington Post)
  • When people share a meal together, they tend to eat as much or as little as their dining companion does, as many studies have shown.
  • (Newsday)
  • Washington, Feb 2 (ANI): Your dining partners can influence your eating behavior and vice versa.
  • (Newstrack India)
  • In this small study, young women were significantly more likely to take a bite when the person with whom they were sharing a meal drew her fork to her mouth, suggesting that behavioral mimicry may be at work during dinner.
  • (MedPage Today)
  • The women, they found, tended to take bites of food at roughly the same time and mimic each others overall eating behavior.
  • (CNN)
  • The researchers found that the women tended to mimic each other's eating behavior — taking bites when their dining partner took a bite.
  • (Time)
  • If the young of a species dont mimic the dietary patterns of the adults, they risk ingesting poisons, or starving.  In the bluntest terms- we learn what, when, and how to eat (by) watching others of our kind.
  • (YAHOO!)
  • And get this: Demonstrators will be lying naked on large trays and covered with clear plastic in order to mimic typical meat packages, according to think hard about what meat is.
