Can Instagram (and Its Brunch Photos) Make You Fat?

warning: do not look directly at the eggs Benedict
Yeah, yeah we know talking about instagramming your brunch and snapping photos of your crazy expensive 17-course dinner is so two-thousand and late. But did you know that science says simply viewing photos of chocolate brioche french toast can trigger hunger, causing you to eat when you wouldn't otherwise? According to Nutrition Diva Monica Reinagel, a  board-certified Licensed Nutritionist, studies have shown that looking at food photos can trigger cravings, and even cause the release of hormones that make you feel like you need to eat. And if you're drinking soda or other sweetened drinks while food-photo cruising, your hunger could be magnified. Yikes! Now please excuse us as we go look at beautiful photos of broccoli and kale while sipping our ice water. You can read more and get info about the studies here.
