Don’t fall for it: If you’re dieting, be warned: your brain in weight loss mode can be tricked by labels, say researchers from the University of South Carolina.

People on diets who were shown a meal of vegetables, salami and pasta were more likely to rate it as healthier when it was called “salad”, not “pasta”. Dieters are so trained to avoid certain foods that they often don’t consider what’s in a meal.

So ignore the name; check the nutritional info.
