Eating and Temptation

Does Seeing Someone Eat Make You Want to Eat Too?

My hubby is big into snacking, and I'll tell you that it takes a tremendous amount of willpower for me to watch him eat without enjoying a few tasty bites myself. Even if I'm not hungry, I still feel the urge to munch on something when I see someone else chomping away. What about you?

Not really. My husband eats and snacks a lot, so if I ate when he did, I'd be huge. I usually eat when I want to; not just because I see someone eating something.

LOL, I really hate it when we're watching T.V. and my girlfriend runs to the kitchen and brings back hummus/pita or bag of tortilla chips. It's sooo hard to not snack!

Especially if they make it sound good, then I really want some but I try not to give in. I like ella1978's idea of having something to drink or chew gum.

Totally! I have to get something to drink or chew some gum or else I'm headed directly for whatever they are having!

I'm not tempted, but I've done my own experiment-- most of my family are social eaters. Just the sound of a pantry or fridge door opening or the clinking of dishes will summon them to the kitchen. It's kinda funny, but kinda not...

most of the time, being around people eating when i'm not is reaallly offputting, especially when it's food i don't like, i hate all the chewing, swallowing sounds and the smell. However, seeing somebody prepare food i like, always makes me want to eat some; as soon as they put it near their mouth i'm like 'bleurgh'
