The current PhD project takes the innovative approach of suggesting that improved interoception and exteroception can be used as a strategy to promote healthy eating behavior. It is believed that paying attention to sensory food experiences in combination with state information from the body, including pleasure, can serve as an effective tool for promoting healthier eating behavior.
The project will progress over three phases. Phase 1 includes studies of individual differences in interoceptive and exteroceptive capabilities. Phase 2, strategies to boost interoception and exteroception. Phase 3 will develop recommendations using interoceptiion and exteroception to better control desires for highly palatable foods.
