Abstract:

Twenty men trekked on foot for two 10-day periods across the Greenland icecap, half on full rations and the others on half rations. Under restricted feeding food preferences increased and 97 percent of available food was eaten. Positive and high correlations .51-.86 between preference and consumption were found for all groups and under all experimental conditions. Underfed men tended to reject the same type of foods as full-fed men. Author
