For Losing Weight, the Last Thing You Need is a Bad Influence

It has been shown that social influences on eating habits are very powerful. Even if your intentions are to stick to the rules of your weight-loss plan, social influences may override your good intentions.

We tend to regulate our intake using the intake of those around us as a guide. In other words, on a diet or off, people follow the example of others. You might put it this way: Your eating habits are influenced by your companion' s eating habits.

Doesn' t it stand to reason, then, that while you are dieting, it' s best not to hang out with people who are into overeating.
