Men generally eat more, eat worse, and eat out more often than their female counterparts. When you're with your man 24/7 you may start to match his eating patterns. Research shows that while your guy is likely to lose weight through your positive food influence, you're more liable to pack on pounds when you're a witness to his ordering deep-fried appetizers or another round of Guinness!
The solution: Meals are symbolic of happy times together, but don't let this determine how much you will "happily" consume. One of the best tricks to gauge your true hunger is to imagine a steak dinner. If you feel hungry enough to eat that, then you have room to spare. If you can't stomach the thought, you may be done for that meal. You can share a lot of things, but his metabolism is not one of them!
