How Hunger Facilitates Dieting: the Paradoxical Effect of Hunger When Individuals Are Primed With an Environmental Dieting Cue

This research examines the influence of an environmental dieting cue in interaction with hunger. Results reveal that the cue, a screensaver showing thin, human-like sculptures by the artist Alberto Giacometti, reduced unhealthy food intake especially in hungry individuals. Thus, the dieting cue was effective when it was actually needed.
