Creating false food memories to lose weight

By

Poutine

Convincing someone of a false memory could change their long-term eating patterns. It could even be a way to fight obesity and help people who are overweight. Researchers from the Universiteit Maastricht have discovered that making simple suggestions to someone can change their eating patterns. For example, telling someone that they got sick as a child eating a certain type of food would put them off that food months later.

This picture features good old greasy poutine, typical French Canadian junk food I used to actually serve at one of my first jobs.
