    I have a good reason: because when you hang out with your fat friend, they eat, so you have the compulsion to eat even if you`re not hungry.

    ^basically^ ... interesting enough, but that doesn`t change much, now does it? "ok, let`s stop hanging out with fatty patty `cuz i don`t wanna get her fat coodies" yes, let`s give children more of a chance to be a-holes.

    Interesting article....makes sense to a certain degree. Of course there are other factors at work also such as genetics. I guess you might be able to say the same thing about smoking.

    so now I can blame my fat friends for making me fat?
    or is my fatness making them fat?
    or maybe we all just get fat simultaneously....

    I guess it makes sense cause eating is a social thing. And if you`re friends spend all day on the couch then you will too.

    And smigbaafm, I love your picture. I just had to say it.

    My points...
    1) If they are eating you will join them if they offer you anything
    2) Its polite if you eat with them rather than sitting there watching them.
    3) If your friend is overwieght, subconsiously it becomes not so bad, or acceptable because you compare your self to them and not a stick thin person. (Okay spelling crap and didnt make sense but it did to me.)
    4) If your friends are skinny obviously you dont want to be the fat one so you slim down.

    I also agree with sum41chck911, i guess it just shows how influenced by our peers we are, we want to fit in, even if it is not so good (getting fat).

    Interesting study, but it doesn`t make a whole lot of sense... they researched 12000 `adults` over 32 years... if you count an `Adult` as 35 years old, then each would be averaging around 70 years old near the end of the study..
    i hope they did more in depth research, but still, as anyone moves from `Adult`hood to seniority, you can`t excersize as much and your body becomes less effectient in burning fat, etc, etc.
    As people get older, people get fatter. or at least end up with a beer gut or something.
    i don`t think this study counts for a whole lot, but, hey, what do i know

    This is a bunch of bullsh*t. My parents were fat, not "obese" but they were pretty chunky people, and I went throughout my life without any weight problems. With the exception of some baby-fat, that was lost within a year. Maybe I just have will-power. I don`t know.

    Thats stupid, how do they know? Sometimes obesity runs in your family, maybe because your fat parents take you down to Macshack. But your friends? How the frig do they find this crap out?

    So fat people can`t have skinny friends?
    O.o

    Well, guess I gotta go clear out my address book and tell everyone I can`t be friends with a skinny person.

    =] Nahh, just kidding around. But I guess I`ll have to stay home at least...XD

    Well, it`s kind of understandable.

    If your friend invites you to eat dinner with him/her, chances are you probably want to talk and hang out. And they might eat. And you might want what they`re having too, because it looks really good.

    There are a lot of reasons why this is understandable. But self control is also something that people should be able to exhibit.

    That is the most rediculous thing I`ve ever heard. It is NOT contagious.

    I`ve hung out with many skinny people(And I`m chubby) and whenever I would eat, they wouldn`t keep up with me.

    That is bullsh**t and it`s another thing to start a prejudice.

    None of that is true. The FAT want to be skinny and fit in stupid. Second of all, not all friends of fat people eat when they eat, and a LOT of fat people don`t eat that much idiot.
