IF you find yourself ordering a saucy cheeseburger in a restaurant instead of a low-calorie salad, the music might be to blame.
A 2018 study has found that music not only sets the mood of an evening but can also influence what you order.
When subjected to louder music, customers have a tendency to order unhealthy food, such as burgers, researchers found.
However, if the same track is playing in the background but quieter they are more likely to opt for a healthier alternative.
Tempo of music has long been linked to levels of excitement – a quicker beat raises the heart rate while a slower rhythm induces relaxation.
