Do tests make you hungry?

Posted in Acceptance testing by testing in London on September 14, 2008


A Canadian research team measured the food intake of 14 female students after three thinking tasks involving either relaxing in a sitting position, reading and summarising a text or completing a series of memory, attention and vigilance tests on a computer. When offered a buffet meal after the activities, “students spontaneously consumed 203 more calories after summarising a text and 253 more calories after the computer tests”, The Daily Telegraph says.

The average energy intake after the reading and writing and the automated computer testing tasks exceeded that measured after rest by 848kJ (203kcal) and 1057kJ (253kcal), respectively.
