The science behind food cravings

Exhibition examines the science behind food cravings
ClickTell Consulting's insight:

Notice the term “anti-trigger” used in the video (at 1:22). This is a way of avoiding a usually advertising/neuromarketing driven urge for a person to make an impulse purchase - such as suddenly stopping in a high street to buy certain food once that person has been exposed to a certain smell.

 

In our last year’s  blog post reply on the Centre For Connected Health we introduced a similar term referred to as “Counterising”, for counteracting advertising. You can read more from here:

Jo,

A great post. Blended delicately, neuroscience, marketing and advertising can produce the sweetest pill that preventive care of today could wish for.

 

A while back at my company we coined the term “Counterising”, for counteracting advertising. This came about as a result of trying to formulate an effective evidence-based model to encourage a healthy lifestyle in the field of chronic disorders.

 

Needless to say implemented properly insight of this nature offers a tremendously healthy ROI. Why else would companies such Coca-Cola & McDonalds spend as much money as they do in successfully trying to encourage us to buy into their message and product?

 

Sepe Sehati,

This great study shows that "the siblings with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) had higher uptake of the neurotoxin lead, and reduced uptake of the essential elements manganese and zinc, during late pregnancy and the first few months after birth, as evidenced through analysis of their baby teeth. Furthermore, metal levels at three months after birth were shown to be predictive of the severity of ASD eight to ten years later in life."
