Psychology’s Julie Exline explains research that people pleasers overeat

“People pleasers” feel pressured to snack

ABC News: A recent study found that people pleasers feel pressured to eat to comfort around them who are indulging. “If you sense that another person wants you to eat, you’ll be more likely to eat more,” said Julie Exline, associate professor of psychology. “If we look back later and feel like we’ve given into social pressure, we often regret those choices.”
