Doesn't work for me. I see it, I want it. If this kind of thing worked, I wouldn't need to lose weight.

Definitely not true for me.....If I see many ads about foods, especially sweet foods/candy, it only makes me want them more. Restaurant ads make me want to eat things I know I shouldn't. Advertising is just a ploy to get to us !!

If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !

Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!

hmmm. idk. I have no idea what size the study/ whatever was. In a way it makes sense. Even with commercials on tv.... You'll see a pizza commercial and maybe later a burger commercial. A fast-food chicken commercial. A Pillsbury bake some stuff at home commercial. Different types of food. If it was pizza over and over and over again.... might curb your appetite for pizza. Wouldn't stop you from wanting a whole bag of Doritos covered with cheese sauce though. Or a dozen doughnuts.

There might be something to it -- after all, advertising doesn't usually over-saturate you with the idea and image of a desired food. The image is there for a few seconds, then gone, and you don't see it again until the next commercial break (or longer).

The reason I think there may be a grain of truth there is that I came across a counter-intuitive "trick" a while back for curbing cravings that has worked really, really well that has some similarities to this. Namely, if you have a craving for a specific food, imagine actually eating it, in great sensory detail. Often, the craving then goes away. Maybe this is touching on the same sort of thing.

I agree with you! Advertising wouldn't work if that were true. I don't think it's true that it numbs our appetite to see those things BUT I can say that if I am craving pasta (vaguely) and I go on Pinterest and type in pasta, only 1 out of 20 photos of pasta will appeal to me. Whereas if someone had just shown me one of the 19 non-appealing pasta photos, I would probably have wanted it. So there is an "abundance makes us picky" principle.

So on the local news this morning they said scientist claim studies have shown seeing pics on facebook etc of foods your friends post curbs your appetite for specific foods you see the most. Example if you see a lot of salty foods posted you won't want anything salty. They said its because you basically have sensory overload and are done with it. What do you think about this? Personally I call bs. Why do you think they show commercials on tv over and over. It's. to get you desiring whatever product. Personally i see yummy foods over and over online I get hungry.

Smile it confuses people.

Cherish every moment with your loved ones for you never know when it may be your last.

Every little tiny thing a loved one ever does to annoy you, you'll beg for if you ever lose them, so savor even the annoying things.
