Fifty-five women were recruited and assigned to a control group or an oral contraceptive (OC) use group. For the control groups menstrual cycle phase was determined using a menstrual calendar and only participants with regular cycles were recruited. Testing was carried out during a single day of the luteal and follicular phases, where participants were asked to consume and rate sweet and savoury snacks. Participants in the OC group were tested on the equivalent days of their pill calendar. In both groups, the luteal phase induced a greater caloric intake of sweet foods without altering hedonic ratings. No significant interactions between either phase or flavour with OC use on food intake or hedonic food ratings were found. At least for snack items, OC do not seem to alter the caloric intake fluctuations that occur during a normal menstrual cycle.
