Study shows that looking at pics of food makes you LESS hungry

Throw on another episode of the Great British Bakeoff, because this new study shows that indulging in ‘food porn’ will actually make you less hungry, not more.

The study, titled “Satiation from sensory simulation: Evaluating foods decreases enjoyment of similar foods” found that looking at particular types of food acts on your brain as if you’d actually eaten that food.

This means you not only will want the food less, but you will get less enjoyment out of eating it.

So next time you’re dieting, stock up on old episodes of cooking shows and feed your brain delicious goodies  – you’ll feel less sad that they’re not on the real life menu.
