Diet failures are often attributed to an increase in cravings for attractive foods. However, accumulating evidence shows that food cravings actually decrease during energy-restricting weight-loss interventions. The current study aimed at elucidating possible mechanisms that may explain how and under which circumstances food cravings in- or decrease during dieting. Specifically, decreases in food cravings during weight-loss diets may be due to effects of energy restriction (homeostatic changes…

TLDR
Dieting’s bad reputation for increasing food cravings is only partially true as the relationship between food restriction and craving is more complex, suggesting that food deprivation can also facilitate extinction of conditioned food craving responses.
Food cravings in everyday life: An EMA study on snack-related thoughts, cravings, and consumption
TLDR
HCs are more prone to think about high-calorie snacks in their daily lives and to consume more snack foods when they experience intense cravings, which might be indicative of a heightened responding towards high-Calorie foods.
Food cravings and body weight: a conditioning response
TLDR
Most findings continue to support the conditioning model of food cravings, which suggests that food craving reductions are because of reductions in the frequency of consuming craved foods, independent of energy content.

Suppressing images of desire: Neural correlates of chocolate-related thoughts in high and low trait chocolate cravers

When and how do explicit measures of food craving predict implicit food evaluation? A moderated mediation model
Abstract Research findings about relationships between trait-like eating behaviors and implicit food evaluations have been inconsistent. This may be partially attributed to the state-dependent nature
“I will fast … tomorrow”: Intentions to restrict eating and actual restriction in daily life and their person-level predictors

The effect of deprivation on food cravings and eating behavior in restrained and unrestrained eaters.
TLDR
Converging measures of craving indicate that deprivation causes craving and overeating, but primarily in restrained eaters.
Experimental effects of chocolate deprivation on cravings, mood, and consumption in high and low chocolate-cravers
TLDR
Theoretically, these results suggest that chocolate consumption may be better explained by trait-level of chocolate craving than by deprivation and highlighted significant differences in mood, state-level cravings, and chocolate intake between cravers and non-cravers following deprivation.
Dietary monotony and food cravings in young and elderly adults
TLDR
There was no significant change in liking for the monotonous diet over the study period, and nutritional deprivation is not a necessary condition for food cravings, and elderly subjects were not responsive to the monotony manipulation.
Startling Sweet Temptations: Hedonic Chocolate Deprivation Modulates Experience, Eating Behavior, and Eyeblink Startle
TLDR
The results reveal the profound effects of hedonic deprivation on experiential, behavioral and attentional/appetitive response systems and underscore the role of individual differences and state variables for startle modulation.

Dieting and food craving. A descriptive, quasi-prospective study
TLDR
The results support an association between dieting and food craving, the usefulness of distinguishing dieting to lose weight and watching, and suggest a need for further experimental investigation of actual food restriction on food craving experiences.
Hedonic hunger: A new dimension of appetite?
TLDR
Evidence suggesting that the appetitive anomalies associated with restrained eating are due to diet-induced challenges to the homeostatic system more likely stem from hedonic hunger is reviewed, and a recently-developed measure of individual differences in appetitive responsiveness to rewarding properties of the food environment is described.
Selective carbohydrate or protein restriction: Effects on subsequent food intake and cravings
TLDR
Results indicated that selective food restriction resulted in selective behavioural consequences, and carbohydrate-restricted participants consumed more of a high-carbohydrate food than did controls or protein-restrictors, in addition to reporting more cravings for high- carbs over the restriction period.
As Pleasure Unfolds
TLDR
It is suggested that dieters experience difficulties in down-regulating hedonic affect when in a “hot” state and that self-regulation research may benefit from a greater emphasis on temporal dynamics rather than static differences.
