Only a Diamond Can Cut a Diamond: the Regulation of Emotions Via System Fit

Feeling sad or anxious increases the selection of unhealthy and indulgent options. We show that these effects are controlled by specific emotion regulation strategies. The effect of sadness is most strongly regulated by explicit emotional reappraisal, while the effect of anxiety is most strongly regulated by nonconsciously operating reappraisal goals.
