Cavallo, D.A., & Pinto, A. (2001). Effects of mood induction on eating behavior and cigarette craving in dietary restrainers. Eating Behaviors, 2 (2), 113-127.
Abstract: Investigated the interaction of smoking and affect on food intake in 60 women, 18-25 yrs old, who were identified as restrainers. The study consisted of smokers and nonsmokers who viewed a domestic violence or comedy film segment, followed by exposure to snacks. Emotional arousal, regardless of valence, did not result in a difference in food consumption between smokers and nonsmokers. Furthermore, smokers showed similar levels of nicotine craving after both films. Self-report of mood changed only in the domestic violence condition, indicating the difficulty of positive mood induction. Limitations to the study and suggestions for further research are discussed.
