Our Eyes Deceive Us
So apparently now just seeing an overweight person can make others eat more. Unless they see them eating and then they eat less. I can just envision a world where are the fat people are hidden away from the rest of society and the only way to see one is behind glass while they're eating. I jest of course. I find the psychology of it all fascinating, but I do also hope that this doesn't cause more unfair judgement of overweight people. It also begs the question of how helpful watching reality shows like the Biggest Loser, Shedding for the Wedding or Ruby really are to overweight people. Do I need to change my DVR now to help me lose weight?
