  • I'm the same way but my reason is that DH is a super awesome cook! I love eating anything he makes. Does your DH eat more or unhealthy? It's probably hard to eat a salad when DH is munching on potato chips and drinking soda.

  • Because in our culture, eating is a social activity, so when you are social ie hes home with you, you are primed to eat more often.
    I actually don't eat if I don't have someone to eat with, it occasionally becomes a problem.
