Rogers Abstract: It is widely believed that motivational state influences the hedonic value of food, so that food tastes "better" when the eater is hungry than when he or she is full. While this may appear consistent with many people's eating experiences, a counter argument is that hunger and fullness act largely independently from hedonic experience. A classic study by Mook and Votaw (Appetite, 1992, 18) investigated the relative importance of these factors and others in decisions to end a meal. Twenty years on, we present new data which replicate and extend these findings. Consistent with the original study, we asked university students (N =110) to complete the statement "I usually stop eating a meal when ..." by choosing from a number of different alternatives. Importantly, we replicated Mook and Votaw's result that the hedonic alternative ("The food tastes less pleasant") was selected by few participants (8%). In the original study, the overwhelming favourite was feelings of fullness (selected by 61% of participants). Intriguingly, in our study, the most popular responses were "I feel full" and "The food is all gone" (selected by a 41% and 43% of participants, respectively). Taken together, these findings indicate that hedonic shifts are not salient factors in ending a meal. Our new data also support the occurrence of "plate-clearing" and, consistent with other research (Fay et al., Appetite, 2011, 56), suggest that meal size is influenced by decisions made before the meal begins.
