Abstract:

Increasingly, the relationship between emotion and eating is recognized as an important issue in the study of obesity. Emotions influence food choice behaviors in human beings, but the evidence for the impact of negative and positive emotion on food intake appears to be asymmetric. Negative emotions have been thoroughly studied and there is consensus that they increase food consumption [1]. In addition, there is some evidence that among obese persons characterized as having a negative affect, there is a greater tendency to overeat in response to negative mood induction compared to obese persons characterized as low in negative affect or normal weight control subjects [2]. © 2013 Springer-Verlag.
