My wife, who is 59 y/o, is attractive fit and slim. She’s going into NYC today to meet a friend and go to the ballet. I asked her if she’d like dinner when she got home this evening and she said “no, we’ll have dinner after the show”. I’m willing to bet that she will not have dinner, maybe a cocktail or two, a shared appetizer or two and a salad but no entrée. The woman she’s with is rail thin. Now @ 11:00 tonight she’ll be at the refrigerator looking for something to eat because she’s “starving”. I think that among urban professional women of a certain age there’s a feeling that if they eat “heartily” it is somehow a negative, lower class thing. So they don’t do it among their peers, only behind closed doors.
Is this true?
