This is scary. But is Arkansas is an accurate predictor for the rest of us?

Take a look.

"Help, My fiance makes me eat too much!"

It's proven that how much you eat is directly proportional to how many people are eating with you. If you eat with one other person, apparently you eat 25% more than you would if you ate alone. You + 2? 50% more. This would mean that if you eat about 1800 calories a day and eat with 2 others just 3 times a week, within 2 weeks you'll have gained over a pound.

The 3 bite rule

One great thing about PEERtrainer is that you see what works for different people. So we end up with a ton of ideas. One tip that a member came up with was the Three Bite Rule. You can take 3 bites of anything that you want - cheescake, pasta - and still lose weight.
