Not only junk food, but healthy and may be the cause of the development of obesity. So say experts from Cornell University USA. They conducted a study, which proved that the majority of people eats more when he knows the food is low-calorie and relatively healthy.
Volunteers during the movie was asked to choose either "healthy" cookies or their conventional counterpart. If people knew that their snacks contain less calories, they consumed significantly more food.
The psychological factor, experts say, is key in the formation of obesity from overeating. It's the attitude toward food and invented the need for large amounts of food makes us reach for another portion. Experts advise not to be on the label "eco logical" or "healthy" on the packaging, and to push off from the real nutritional value of foods.
