    Junk Food Commercials Increase Food 'Wanting'

    Research to be presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior (SSIB), the foremost society for research into all aspects of eating and drinking behavior, sought to investigate personality traits that make some people more vulnerable to over-eating and weight gain.

    Obesity rates have been partly attributed to the easy access of cheap, high calorie food. However, many individuals exposed to the same food lie well within the healthy weight range. In her study, Dr. Natalie Loxton proposed reward sensitivity as a key trait predisposing some individuals to be highly attracted to cues linked with appetitive food - such as a television commercial marketing junk food.

    "We tested whether reward-sensitive individuals would experience greater pleasure and urge to eat after watching TV commercials featuring junk food, compared with those featuring healthy food or no food", Dr. Loxton said.

    This independent study comprised of 75 men and women who watched a 30 minute film embedded with junk food, healthy food, or no food featured in the commercials. Participants rated the pleasantness of food images and their desire to eat after watching the films.

    "As hypothesised, reward sensitivity was associated with an increase in urge to eat in the junk food condition. There was no association in the healthy food condition and a reduced desire to eat in the no food condition," she said.

    Dr. Loxton also discovered that reward sensitivity was associated with greater liking of junk food images, but only for women. There was no effect of reward sensitivity on liking of healthy food or non-food images.

    Dr. Loxton confirmed that these findings support the role of greater food wanting in high reward sensitive individuals in response to appetitive food cues.

    What bothers me even more is how many ads are aimed at children, and it's pretty much unhealthy crap that gets presented in a way that kids cannot resit.. I know as parents we control what are kids watch on tv, but it's just ridiculous the amount of commercials aimed at kids now days.

    I love watching cooking shows, it really has not affect on me, I have no problem sticking to my diet.

    I know the feeling after eating some junk food and the cost's...and it's never a good result. But I can see it on Television and it usually makes me sick.

    I think it is even more bullshit that you see athletes doing McDonald's commercials like what I saw every set of commercials during the Olympics. Pisses me off to see LeBron and Loul Deng talking about betting lunch at McD's.

    Yeah for sure, McDonalds sponsoring the olympics and pushing commercials pretending that they're healthy is a load of BS. I thought that the olympics were supposed to have some dignity and not be about money, but obviously that's not true...

    Re: Junk Food Commercials Increase Food 'Wanting'

    I want a Whopper and Fries - but by the time i swap out the beef for the chicken, drop the mayo and hold the fries it just never seems as appetizing.

    I love fast food. I just try to make good decisions. Im one of the people that goes into Wendies and orders an apple pecan salad with double chicken on top. It's not really what i WANT, but its what i will allow myself to have.....

    Now i want chick-fil-a.

    Poor Papa John, he would just have a hole for a face and the pizza wouldn't be better pizza, better ingredients anymore.

    They spend millions of dollars tapping into our most basic human nature.

    Unfortunately knowing the path and walking it are not the same. I know that In&Out burger is like the worst thing I can do, but still find myself making a visit every once in a while.

    I immensely respect the members here who have tremendous discipline when it comes to diet and positive food choices. I will admit I struggle with it most days and I am hungry much of the time.

    Don't even get me start on alcohol....
