Title: Being Manly Men: Conveying Masculinity Through Eating Behaviour
Authors: Lipschitz, Lisa Jodi
Advisor: Herman, C. Peter
Department: Psychology
Keywords: Masculinity
Eating Behaviour
Issue Date: 15-Feb-2010
Abstract: Males were given false feedback that they scored low, high, or no feedback (control group) on masculinity and given a “masculine” food (meat pizza), a “feminine” food (vegetarian pizza), or the choice between the two to eat. An interaction between masculinity condition and food condition was found when the “feminine” food condition and the Control group were removed, such that low-masculine participants given meat pizza ate a small amount, as did high-masculine participants given a choice. High-masculine participants given meat pizza ate a large amount of food as did low-masculine participants given a choice. In certain situations males want to appear masculine and therefore eat a larger amount of food, or want to appear attractive on other dimensions and therefore eat a smaller amount of food.
