Exposure to Healthy Food Increases the Appetite

We propose that exposure to health food labels can signal the health goal was met, which increases the strength of the conflicting motive to satisfy one’s appetite. This effect is stronger for less committed individuals who are more likely to infer progress on - without increasing commitment to- the health goal.
