Experimental: Sweet food consumption
Sweet breakfasts. Participants are asked to consume a sweet breakfast every day. All foods will be provided.
Behavioral: Sweet food consumption
Sweet food consumption at breakfast
Active Comparator: Non-sweet food consumption
Non-sweet breakfasts. Participants are asked to consume a non-sweet breakfast every day. All foods will be provided.
Behavioral: Non-sweet food consumption
Non-sweet food consumption at breakfast
- Food preferences [ Time Frame: 3 weeks from baseline ]Ratings of three sweet and three non-sweet foods during a taste test (two tests). Ratings measured using 100mm VAS scales for different hedonic factors - pleasure, sweetness, desire to eat). Scores range from 0-100 where 0=least and 100=greatest for each hedonic factor.
- Food intake [ Time Frame: 3 weeks from baseline ]Amount of sweet and non-sweet foods consumed during breakfast and lunch
- Hunger ratings [ Time Frame: Baseline, 1 week, 3 weeks ]Ratings of subjective perceptions (two meals). Ratings measured using 100mm VAS scales for different subjective factors - hunger, thirst, fullness). Scores range from 0-100 where 0=least and 100=greatest for each subjective factor.
