Trying To Shed Pounds? Try To Avoid Online Ordering

Jan 10, 2013 -- 6:08am

PEOPLE ORDER MORE FOOD WHEN THEY ORDER ONLINE: A new study says that while ordering take-out online might be convenient, it might also be hurting your waistline. Assistant Professor from the Simon School of Business at the University of Rochester, Ryan McDevitt, is a study author and says that after analyzing food orders placed via the internet at the pizza chain they found that customers would over-order. McDevitt says people over-order online because they have fewer inhibitions in more private settings. The study found that online customers increased their double and triple bacon orders more than ten-times as much as their double and triple orders for vegetable toppings, and that pizza ordered online contained six-percent more calories compared to orders places over the phone or in person. McDevitt says one way to curb over-ordering online would be to do it in the presence of a person's whose opinion you care about, or even just look at a picture of that person. (Yahoo)
