A few weeks ago I added a blog post entitled, “Is Your Dining Companion a Bad Influence?” which addressed that fact that women often mimic female dining partners in regards to how much food we consume.

You have heard me mention “mindless eating” on more than one occasion. Recently, I came across an article I though was extremely interesting. Maybe it was the title that caught my eye, “Google Study Gets Employees to Stop Eating So Many M&Ms” because you must admit it’s pretty intriguing.
In the words of Aristotle, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” So why is it that we are always trying to derail the habits that we know are good for us? Weekends, cheat days, this occasion and that occasion.

Are you one of the many who feel very awkward eating in a restaurant alone? For many of us, dining out is not only about the food, it’s also a social experience.
