Feeling peckish? Instead of opening the fridge, open Instagram and start scrolling and staring at different pictures of food, because that will make you feel full.

Or at least that is what Tjark Andersen said during his research presentation at Aarhus University’s food department. A Ph.D student, Tjark said his research delved into showing 1,000 test subjects the same picture of food about 30 times, and his results showed that people claimed they felt more full after looking at the picture. As appetite is closely related to your cognitive perception, he said thoughts about food can actually cheat your brain into thinking you’re feeling full. He added that the variation in the images will have an effect on satiety.
