No Fries For You! Waiters Externally Impose Self-Control to Restaurant Customers Depending on Their Weight and Gender

Waiters have the power to influence the food choices of restaurant patrons, and to “externally impose” self-control. We show that dish recommendations vary as a function of customers’ weight and gender: waiters tend to make paternalistic recommendations (healthier over tastier dishes) to heavy female, but not male, customers.
