Effects of Performance Goals on Food Preferences and Consumption

This research examines how performance goals influence food behavior beyond task achievement. In three experiments, we demonstrate that information (i.e., words, slogans) associated with performance increase consumption and preferences for unhealthy food and preferences for it. Further, this effect is due to a need for food energy.
