We recruited 140 adults from Kaohsiung City (the largest city of southern Taiwan) to participate in a laboratory experiment. Participants were randomly assigned to receive either social distancing or neutral primes via an emotional-event recollection technique. The amount of ice cream eaten in a taste test and the self-reported likelihood of binge eating served as our dependent measures.
