Does my heart rate increase when I see and eat foods I like?

Post by Amy54 » Sun May 27, 2007 12:07 am

Hey guys I am doing an experiment on whether a persons heart rate will increase when they see and eat foods that they like? I got results like; when I ate chocolate and ice-cream my heart rate decreased and when i ate foods that I didn't like like wasabi, chilli and mushrooms my heart rate increased. Does anyone know if there is any info to back up my hypothesis?

Could it be that your excitement for the foods raised your pressure originally or some other time. Wasabi and chili are spicy foods, they obviously will raise your rate. Eating in general should decrease heart rates because your body is using resources for digestion rather other functions that require additional blood pumped from the heart. Need that help?

Isolate your might have too many confounding factors
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
