Instagram could ruin your meal
October 9 , 2013
A new study suggests that looking at photos of food could take away people's appetite. Research at Brigham Young University asked people to look at and rate photos of food. It appears that people who look at salty food don't find peanuts as appealing even if they weren't specifically shown photos of peanuts.
One researcher mentioned that looking at such photos on Instagram gets you tired of the taste "without even eating the food."
"It's sensory boredom- you've kind of moved on. You don't want that taste experience anymore," he said.
Hence, foodies should avoid photos of food on Instagram if they want to enjoy their meals and those who are looking to lose weight should start doing otherwise.
