Men And Women Differ In Their Eating Habits: Study
According to this study of 14,000 adults conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are clear gender differences when it comes to food preferences. In general, men tend to favor meat and poultry products, while women tend to favor fruits and vegetables.
This study of gender differences in eating habits found that men are more likely to eat meat and poultry, especially duck, veal, and ham, and certain shellfish such as shrimp and oysters. Women are more likely to eat vegetables, especially carrots and tomatoes, and fruits, especially strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and apples. Women also prefer dry foods including almonds and walnuts and are more likely to consume eggs and yogurt than men.
Some exceptions to these generalities: Men are more likely to eat asparagus and brussel sprouts while women are more likely to consume fresh hamburgers over frozen, which men prefer. With respect to high risk foods, researchers found that more men consume undercooked meat and eggs than women, while women are more likely to eat alfalfa sprouts.
