ABSTRACT
Emotions have been observed to distinctly influence food choice in conditions when a vast number of women (82%) have no suffered from hunger before eating. This means that food intake is influenced by emotional hunger rather than the physiological one. The mostly preferred food at negative moods, like anger, sorrow, fear or stress, have been sweets. Boredom has favored eating of an increased amount of food, without any special preferences. Stress has influenced food intake in a different way: some subjects have declared eating lower, while some - greater amounts of food. The winter season has increased food intake among 74% of young women.
