A Visual Consumption of Desserts: the Impact of Subtle Food Cues on Dieters

This research examines the differences between dieters and non-dieters in response to subtle consumption cues. Participants were presented with an image of a bitten, cut, or whole dessert. The results show that dieters in comparison to non-dieters respond more favourable to the bitten and cut desserts.
