Facebook Makes Your Dinner Taste Worse? [POLL]

Want to ruin the taste of your food?  A new study shows that all those pictures on Facebook and other social networks of food that your friends post, actually make your food not taste as good.

 The study by Brigham Young University showed that looking at pictures of food will make your own food not as enjoyable because the pictures have made you already “experience” the food.

“If you want to enjoy your food consumption experience, avoid looking at too many pictures of food,” Larson said in a statement. “Even I felt a little sick to my stomach during the study after looking at all the sweet pictures we had.”

The good news?

The concept could work the other way, too. If you have a weakness for desserts, going on a binge of sweet pictures could make you steer clear. The effect, though, seems to depend on seeing a large number of pictures.

I think I’d have to look at a lot of pictures of desserts before I didn’t want one! I mean a lot!!!!
