Do you ever find that a picture on a news story has the opposite effect than the story would otherwise?
I was reading this article, “Sugary diets appear to worsen cholesterol levels,” which talks about how a diet high in sugar and processed food is bad for your health.
But whenever I looked at the picture of Tim Hortons’ donuts, all I wanted to do was eat a sugary, deep fried, diet destroying donut, or two.
The photo makes sense for the news story, but obviously had a bigger impact on me than the words in the story itself.
I think many, if not all of us are very visual people. The question is, does everybody get hungry when they see a beautiful picture of food?
