Imagining a recent meal as larger than reality may reduce snacking, study finds

The so-called “meal-recall effect”—remembering a recent meal—can reduce how much food a person will eat later. Researchers from the University of Cambridge have investigated the impact on the meal-recall effect of imagining that a recent meal was twice as big and satisfying as reality or of recalling a recent meal in detail (e.g., what it felt like to chew and swallow the food). The results are published in Appetite.
