A new study suggests what we order when eating out may be influenced by our waiter’s appearance.

After watching nearly 500 diners in 60 restaurants, researchers found people with heavier waiters were four times more likely to order dessert and ordered 17% more alcohol.

In fact, a heavier waiter or waitress seemed to have the biggest impact on the thinnest diners.

One good solution is to decide ahead of time if you’ll have an appetizer or a dessert.
