The Interaction Effect of Food Variety and Simulation of Eating on Consumers' Calorie Estimation

Given the inconsistent findings about the relationship between food variety and calorie estimation, this research proposes simulation of eating as one moderator. Specifically, we propose that when a simulation of eating is (not) stimulated, food variety decreases (increases) consumers’ calorie estimation. Three experiments demonstrated this proposition and its underlying mechanism.
