Abstract: The work presented in this dissertation aimed at evaluating the psychological effect of nutrition claims on appetite sensations. According to a three (experimental condition) by two (sex) by two (restrained eating) by two (weight) factorial design, 164 males and 188 females aged 18-65 were invited to taste and rate oatmeal-raisin cookies in a blinded context. No main condition effect was observed for any of the appetite sensations. However, a satiating effet of the ‘’diet’’ condition was observed among normal-weight unrestrained women and overweight or obese unrestrained men. A main effect of sex was also observed with men reporting higher levels of hunger than women. These findings highlight the importance of considering individual characteristics when studying appetite sensations.
