Lol. when me and my friends meet up, we usually pig-out in some restaurant and then hangout in a coffe shop. Talk about packing calories for hibernation.

Well I actually had a little debate about this... when I'm by myself I'm EXTREMELY healthy--no junk food and tons of exercise--but when I'm with my friends, I tend to let things slip. Weirdly enough they eat unhealthy all the time and when I'm around them I almost buy into their lifestyle even though it really has no appeal to me.I don't think it's their fault--granted I believe it's the opposite, it's entirely on me--but it's strange to see how eating behaviors can influence others.

my friends definitely urge me to eat more than i feel comfortable eating. they don't seem to listen to their hunger or fullness. they don't make healthy choices very often. if i wasn't educated on proper nutrition and i didn't have a strong willpower, i would probably weigh more than i do.

Great point although I think the real blame should be on yourself. It's your mouth and it's your hand reaching for the pizza and food; your friend isn't prying your mouth open and cramming it down your throat. If your friend gets the junk food, they can eat have it; Your the one making the decision to eat it. I might take a bit out of the food however I won't eat more just because they reach for another piece of pizza. I can see where the "blame the friends" theory can work however I feel like we are all resposible for what we eat.

I think it's interesting and that there's some truth to it.
