Abstract

Aims: The purpose of the study was to determine whether individuals who are susceptible to weight gain display a high hedonic responsiveness to fatty foods. Methods: 3 groups of male age-matched Ss were recruited on the basis of habitual food selection patterns:habitual high-fat consumers who were lean (HF-L,n=16,BMI-21.9) or overweight (HF-O,n=16,BMI-29.1)or low-fat consumers (LH-L,n=16,BMI-22.5). VAS ratings were made on an 11-item hedonic questionnaire to 20 food types varied along the dimensions of fatty and sweet/savoury. The hedonic response was a composite score of ratings of pleasant, tasty, satisfying and liking. DEBQ and TFEQ were administered. Results:A significant main effect was found between groups for the hedonic response to foods (F 2 ,45 - 4.87,p significant main effect was found between groups for the hedonic response to foods (F 2 ,45 - 4.87,p significant main effect was found between groups for the hedonic response to foods (F 2 ,45 - 4.87,ponclusions :Habitual HF consumers showed the highest hedonic responsiveness, and LF-L the lowest. A high hedonic responsiveness is associated with high fat intake. This may constitute a risk factor for overeating, but HF-L and HF-O did not differ strongly on this variable. igh-fat savoury foods were rated high by these male HF-O (susceptible weight gainers).
