According to researchers at Cornell University, a person’s emotional state, especially when he/she is in competitive sports, can trigger emotional eating. It seem that a person in a negative mental state craves sweets more than a person who has a positive state of mind. Our emotions seem to alter taste perception and how much one likes or dislikes a food. When we lose and have a negative frame of mind, foods like ice cream stay appealing, but less pleasurable foods become more unappealing.
