In different parts of Africa women and young girls are forced to eat food for beauty. In Mauritania a desert oasis, bigger women there are seen as beautiful, which means the bigger you are the most likely you are to get married. In Mauritania they force feed females so they can become overweight when they get older. Since force feeding is such a hard thing to do they take breaks from feeding the girls. Force feeding causes people to throw up so when the girls throw up they make them eat more afterwards.
