Since the problem of overweight increases, the development of tools to manage energy intake is important. The author studied two issues that affect total energy intake: food choice and food intake. She investigated differences between people in their ability to transform healthy food choice intentions into action. Moreover, she investigated food properties that promote sensory specific satiety. This is an important factor in the termination of consumption. Especially susceptible for not translating their healthy food choice intentions into action were males, lower educated people, people with a low self-control, and people who are not used to consuming healthy foods. Health promotion policy should therefore focus on those groups. Consumption of high intensity foods appeared to promote sensory specific satiety. Also consumption with small bites or sips promotes sensory specific satiety. This knowledge could be used for the development of highly satiating foods.
