Labels Have Psychological Effects

Labels Have Psychological Effects

A new study showed that labels have psychological effects.

In a recent study on snack labels, participants were given snacks labelled “Trail Mix”’ or “Fitness” and asked to taste and rate the snacks, and then given the option to exercise after eating.

For those looking after their weight, there was a significant effect of how the snack was called, causing them to consume more of the one labelled “Fitness.” The participants eating “Fitness” snacks also chose to expend less energy during exercise.
