Focusing Attention on the Hedonic Experience of Eating and the Changing Course of Hunger and Pleasure

This research shows that externally imposed attention focus on hedonic experience during food consumption can enhance the pleasure and decrease the declining speed of hunger. Moreover, external eaters’ intrinsic focus on hedonic experience has the similar effect even when they were distracted, while their eating is less motivated by hunger.
