Results have shown that when such behaviour is norm-violating, people experience a need to confabulate reasons for this behaviour. The present paper aims to add more convincing evidence for this assumption. Study 1 addresses this question by replicating Study 2 of Adriaanse, Weijers, De Ridder, De Witt Huberts, and Evers (2014) while adding a condition in which people are post hoc provided with an explanation for their behaviour. Study 2 addresses this question by explicitly demanding an explanation for a nonconsciously steered choice. Both studies were conducted in the context of eating behaviour. Results of both studies were indicative of confabulation as a downstream consequence of nonconsciously steered eating behaviour (Study 1) or food choice (Study 2). Future research should address the potential of confabulated reasons spilling over to next occasions.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Kroese, Floor M.</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Explaining unexplainable food choices : Explaining unexplainable food choices</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Gollwitzer, Peter</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/41532"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-02-21T10:42:06Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Adriaanse, Marieke A.</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Oettingen, Gabriele</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
