visual appeal

I was buying some stock photography recently for a project and they had some delicious looking donuts. Right now, looking at it I have no desire to eat it. But, I'll tell you when I first saw this photo I wanted a donut immediately.

I showed it to Josh and asked if he felt the urge to eat a donut just from looking at the photo and he said no. He likes donuts, and could he a box at a time (I'm sorry Josh for using you as an example all of the time!). I was so intrigued by my response and his lack of one. Do you guys have the urge to eat certain foods just by looking at them? Such as food commercials or watching the Food Network?

Seeing a food doesn't make me want it immediately, but I'm a total sucker for logos. If I see McDonald's I want fries, driving past Chipotle makes me want burritos... If only I could drive with my eyes closed.

Looking at that makes me totally want to eat it. No question.

I tend to be weak when it comes to pictures of frosty beverages with no nutritional value and plenty of caloric intake. Also I am definately a food porn person. Gourmet, Food & Wine, Epicurious....these do it for me. ;D

When people refer to "food porn" I think they mean that picture! I can't imagine anyone who loves doughnuts not instantly wanting to rush out and buy one after looking at that picture. On another note, I am so inspired by your blog, thank you!

Some commercials get to me...but it's getting better. I don't feel deprived at all, I've got yummy healthy snacks that I can indulge in whenever I want, so it's not so bad anymore. But if I were to restrict myself or deprive myself like I've done in the past then every picture, commercial or smell would torture me.

Looks like a Sour Cream Glazed from Timmy's. My favourite donut! The one in the picture looks a little on the slimy side though, so no cravings this time :)

Wow, things like that do not help me lose belly fat in the least.

Whats worse is they bring in donuts from timmy's every single Friday.

Rawr!
