The Messy Satiation Effect: the Benefits of Eating Like a Pig

Changing the visual appearance of food during consumption increases satiation when a food becomes messy (unattractive) and decreases satiation when a food remains clean (attractive). Additionally, how appetizing a food stays over consumption mediates this effect, and less guilt arises when rejecting unattractive food than rejecting or overeating attractive food.
