Good thing I already had a bowl of ice cream

While I haven’t read the study, this is an intriguing experimental approach to the study of food consumption!¬†I’ve always been curious why – apart from the everpresent financial or practical reasons – I haven’t seen more studies that eschewed survey data.¬†Keeping the menu the same but manipulating portions and ingredients seems to be a pretty plausible way to control the nutrient ratio with a minimum of intervening factors. Maybe there are plenty of similar studies and I just haven’t run across them? I sure hope so.

  1. I feel like studies that make sure people eat a specific number of calories are missing the entire “appetite” factor of people eating.
