Gulp Down Leafy Vegetables While Looking At Pizza

While one may shudder at the thought of having salad in breakfast, they must look at pictures of high-carb food like pizza or pastry to gulp down the plate of green leafy stuff. It was claimed by scientists at the Nestle Research Centre in Switzerland. However, result is not the same in case in is looking at pictures of healthy foods.

For the research, the team roped in 14 volunteers and made them see pictures of either high-carb or low-carb food. After making them pass through an electric taste test, it was found that those who saw high-carb pictures could enjoy the food more as compared to those who saw low-carb images.

From the research, it appeared that vision has a lot to do in terms of making one eat healthy food.

"The results provide evidence that high calorie food cues enhance the hedonistic evaluation of subsequently presented tastes”, said Dr Johannes le Coutre, who led the research, who is of the say that this study could lead to range of revelation concerning the food evaluation and consumption. There is a need to take this study a step further so that more can be concluded about appetite disorders.

It is believed that these results could do a lot good for those who go on crash diet to shed kilos. It is all the more imperative that the underlying theory of visualizing power can be more studied to deliver concrete results which can be used for clinical applications.

Published in the journal PLoS ONE, the study has certainly opened a new way out for those who have developed a strong dislike for green leafy vegetables over a period of time. Even fussy kids can be dealt with this theory if proven concrete enough in the time to come.
