Sup­port your slim-down goals with SO­CIAL ME­DIA

Women's Health (UK) - - KNOW HOW -

Good news for hash­tags: a re­cent study by the Ge­or­gia In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy sug­gests there’s a di­rect link be­tween those who post pos­i­tive af­fir­ma­tions on so­cial me­dia and suc­cess­ful weight loss. But re­search pub­lished in the jour­nal Brain and Cog­ni­tion found that look­ing at a con­stant stream of food pics can ex­ac­er­bate phys­i­o­log­i­cal hunger – lead­ing to the con­sump­tion of un­nec­es­sary calo­ries. So while those af­fir­ma­tions might be help­ing, all that #yolk­porn is prob­a­bly un­do­ing all your good work.
