    New research from Brigham Young University say that looking at too many pictures of food on social networking sites makes the food less enjoyable to eat due to “sensory boredom.”

     A study from Brigham Young University says that looking at too many pictures of food could make it less enjoyable to eat due to “sensory boredom.” They said seeing all those food images on Pinterest and Instagram make you tired of a particular flavor without even consuming the food.   Researchers said the effect becomes stronger the more pictures a person views, so viewing a pic two or three times is going to kill your appetite.
