There are differences in eating habit between men and women and their eating habit is based on several factors. Studies have found that men tend to eat more compared to women. This study, therefore, intends to investigate the eating habit or pattern between men and women in the society among African society. It will focus on the eating habit and what influence the eating habit of both men and women in the society. It also investigates the number of food men and women eat to determine their habit of eating. In order to present a comprehensive study, the literature review is capture, the methodology of the study, data analysis and comprehensive conclusion.
Several studies have indicated that eating habit depends on various factors such as gender, age, religion-health status (Leblanc, Louise, & Dodin, 2015, p. 25). Most people monitor their diet in order their weights, as a result of doctors advice due to a health condition, and some to keep fit due to fashion. There are differences in eating behavior between men and women in the society. It is evident that men and women have different traits when it comes to eating habit. Research has established that women tend to be very specific with what they eat, while men could eat anything which comes on their way. Ladies consider a lot of things before they eat certain food which men do not unless an individual under health instruction by a doctor.
Mostly, ladies watch their eating habit more than men because of the fear of becoming an overweight which many ladies do not like. Male being muscular eats anything which comes on their way as along it is food just to fulfill their hunger. Most men eat fast and do not consider dieting as much as ladies do on their meal. Men prefer to eat junk food and fish, meat and other kinds of oily food. Most ladies prefer to eat vegetables and fruits because ladies tend to monitor their weight. However, men who eat slowly are considered to be less muscular, therefore, the eating habit between men and women is very different. Research has also established that ladies eat food with fewer or no calories because many of them do not want to add weight (Creek, 2014, p. 14). Ladies are obsessed with their body size, weight and always feel that eating food which contains calories will make them shapeless and obese. It is because most of them are not satisfied with their body size and weight and would want to lose them.
The result from a study conducted by GrubHub indicates a different result based on healthy eating. The report indicates that men have a healthy meal in the restaurant compared to ladies (GrubHub, 2018, p. 12). It further indicates that ladies prefer to eat salad and other junk food from the restaurants which have a lot of calories. Analysis of food delivery from GrubHub network shows that most orders are usually placed by women and therefore, women eat a lot of restaurant food than men. The pizza and fries and soda and most ordered by men and women, not men alone. It is, therefore, women and men eat junk food alike but the quantity of junk is what makes the difference. It has been established that men eat a lot of food compared to women (Slim, 2014, p. 5).
There are differences between men and women attaining weight loss. Men prefer to lose weight by doing exercise daily and ladies achieve weight loss by dieting and it is the reason ladies eat a lot of vegetables, fruit, and calories foods. However, ladies prefer to lose weight to remain slim and become stylish simply because other people are doing similar. In this regard, the eating between men and women is different and men eat a lot than women. Research has shown that the people who become obese are not only because of poor eating habit but some as a result of genetic. It is common for African Americans and it is the reason there are several obese among African Americans. However, the percentage of obese or overweight is common and growing at a higher rate in the developed countries compared to other developing nations. It is as a result of the poor eating habit of the majority of people from developed countries. Studies have established that people eat a lot of junk food in developed countries compared to other parts of the world (Shiferaw, Linda, & Hillary, 2012, p. 12).

This was done to make sure that the information obtained has a good representative of the community (Brian, 2016). Each participant handed over his her questionnaire to the interviewer.
However, the secondary data or literature will be done through research using various academic databases such as Google Scholar and Sage. First, a search will be conducted using keywords and the result shall be analyzed to make sure that the best and relevant academic journals and articles are obtained. The first search was subjected to critical analysis based on data publication, qualification of the author and the topic of the article so that only relevant and accurate information is used to complete the study.
The data shall be analyzed and presented professionally and academically to reflect what has been discovered. The analysis shall be done use statistic and SPSS software or excel. The data analysis shall be based on the observation of the process and the effect.
The result of the study shall be written based on what will be obtained from the data analysis. It shall cover both literature and data analysis from the experiment conducted, and the result shall be presented in an academic format.
The ethical issues which shall be considered relates to the way of reported. Report shall be factual and report shall be positive and based on the findings of the study. It is important to report the truth regarding the findings. The data shall be collected without appropriate controls so that detailed information is presented.
