People-pleasers, your secret is out. You didn’t want dessert, you just ate it because it was offered! A study at Case Western Reserve found that people-pleasers (those who put others first) will eat more just to make the other person feel more comfortable.

How’d they discover that? College students took a personality test, then sat down with an actor who took some M&Ms in front of them. When the actor passed the candy bowl, the people-pleasers ate more candies than the others!

If you’re always putting people first, take a step back and think. Having strong relationships is a big health boon, but not at the cost of your waistline!
