    not necessarily but you may be leaner than you would be, or you may consider yourself "fatter" because your peers are leaner.

    if all your peers were fatter, you would be more likely to see yourself as the "lean" one. Which may impact your view on whether you need to lose weight.

    again, you have to look at the study for what it is. The impact of peers weight on yours. Having fat friends increases the risk of getting fat yourself, but it is by no means a certainty. it does increase the likelyhood of behaviours and perceptions that could lead to obesity.

    Anybody who knows shit about psychology, sociology, or any other study of human behavior is well aware that people learn more from their peers and strive to assimilate with them more than anyone else... If all your friends are eating Mcdonalds every day, and you hang out with your friends, chances are you will go eat mcdonalds too. If your friends are all skinny and you are fat, chances are you will feel like the odd person in the group and you'll take measures to lose weight. If your friends use a new slang word or certain phrases that you haven't used, chances are it'll become a common part of your vernacular sooner or later.



    Hooray for redundancy... these guys should be studying something that isn't old news.
