Implicit evaluation of chocolate and motivational need states interact in predicting chocolate intake in everyday life.

Effects of Chocolate Deprivation on Implicit and Explicit Evaluation of Chocolate in High and Low Trait Chocolate Cravers
TLDR
The current study showed that a selective, hedonic deprivation in the absence of an energy deficit increases food cravings, however, this effect can only be observed for individuals with high trait craving levels, so if attractive foods are strictly avoided through a selective deprivation, HCs are at risk to experience craving bouts in the presence of anEnergy deficit.
