Abstract :

Previous studies have shown that people judge larger women's bodies as more attractive when they are hungry, compared to when they are satiated. A study was conducted to test the boundaries of the effects of hunger. Findings suggest that larger objects and bodies are judged as more attractive by hungrier participants, particularly by women.
