People are tempted to eat more when they're exposed to the scent of fast  food and eye-catching photos on menus, according to a new study  published in the journal Clinical Psychological Science.  Researchers at the University of Michigan found that such "food cues"  make people feel hungrier and consume an average of 220 calories more  than usual.  

Food-related cues can make people want or crave food more,  but don't have as much of an impact on their liking, or the pleasure  they get from eating the food," said study lead author Michelle Joyner.  "It is hard to avoid food cues in our current environment, but people  can try some strategies to minimize their exposure by not going into  restaurants and using technology to skip food advertisements in TV  shows."
