Scarf your dinner, ladies! Hungry girls make worse financial decisions

6 Jul

Ladies, here’s a reason to chow down (that won’t make you feel guilty!): it could make you richer.   A new study finds that you make crappier economic decisions while hungry, the New York Times reports. Translation: hungry girls may make riskier financial choices.

So, if you need an excuse to scarf that cookie or inhale that last slice of pizza, this just might be it.  And I’m not gonna lie: I’ll take it!  Yes, the sample size for the study was small, and so who knows what will come of it, but in the meantime, I repeat, “I’ll take it.”

Welcome to my new, non-guilty eating phase: I’d rather be rich than thin!
