Do friends affect your appetite?

In my case, I guess they do affect my appetite. Some of my friends are picky eaters while the rest are pretty talented when it comes to eating. My appetite actually depends on my companion. Of course I eat and it's definitely one of my favorites or shall we say it's my hobby. But the quantity of my intake depends on my companion, if they like to eat less I do the same, but when they like to pig out and eat a lot, I do the same as well. Oh well, it's because they're really a good company..Are you also like that?

Yes, you're right...People in a party doesn't affect my appetite at all..but my close friend's appetite does affect my eating habits...particularly the type of food and of course the quantity...and I love it, just the way it is..^^

I definitely know what you are talking about here! If I am with my "skinny" friends from college who are all super thin and eat tiny portions and never order dessert, I do the same thing. On the other hand, if I am with my very non judgmental group of friends, and they are eating like crazy and shoving pizza and oreos in their mouth, I am going to take part in that! It never feels good to be eating a ton of food when your companions are eating very little, and you can feel a little bit left out if you aren't eating at all when everyone else is.

My appetite depends on me usually but sometimes my friends affect my appetite also.
