Illusion of Illustration: the Impact of Picture Style on Dieters' Perception of Vice Food

This research investigates how different picture styles (photograph versus illustration) and dieting tendency influence consumers’ perception of vice food. The results show that illustrated, rather than photographic picture, results in a healthier perception of vice food for dieters. Besides, dieters’ attention focus serves as the underlying mechanism.
