The study of 497 diners in 60 restaurants showed that diners who ordered their dinner from heavier wait staff were four times more likely to order dessert, and ordered 17 percent more alcohol.
The study observed 497 diners ordering dinner in casual American restaurants. It then compared these orders to the Body Mass Index (BMI) of the person who waited on them and the size of the diner.

Along with the size of your waiter, the lighting, music, and even where you sit has been shown to unknowingly bias what
you order.
Although, you can not change your waiter or the music in a restaurant, you can follow a personal ordering rule-of-thumb, the researchers said.
The study was published in the journal Environment and Behaviour.
