News You Knew:
Boys Eat A Lot
Posted by Hal in research

Another scientific study to prove what you already knew:  As the lead researcher observed,

“They really can eat.”

Reuters reports on a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition that found boys 8-10, offered a buffet lunch, ate 44% more than girls at the same stage of development.  While girls’ appetites caught up as they entered puberty, the boys ended up eating nearly 2000 calories at lunch as they hit their growth spurt around 14 to 17.

So see, it’s not just yours.
