In this study, you will be asked to visit CUMC to complete several tasks, including answering questionnaires about your feelings and emotions, completing computerized tasks to assess your attitudes toward different foods, and sample small amounts of different beverages. You will also be asked to eat chocolate Ensure until you are so full that you cannot eat any more, and to mark lines showing how you feel during the meal.
