5F the Interactive Effect of Variety and Processing Strategy on Calorie Estimates

Given the inconsistent findings about the relationship between food variety and calorie estimates, we propose simulation of eating as one moderator. Simulation (or not) leads to different processing strategies, which can interact with variety to affect calorie estimates. Three experiments confirm these effects and demonstrate their generalizability over other judgment domains.
