Why do you always give in to those sugary treats in the arvo? Well a team of researchers have looked into this phenomenon, and found why, and we can safely say that you are not alone!
Scientists from Flinders University and Liverpool University researched the relationship 300 different women had with food throughout the day.
They discovered that in the mornings we tend to view junk food as unhealthy, and we also generally believe that cake and other sugary treats aren’t an acceptable breakfast.
But as the day goes on we start to change our minds, and we start to view sweet snacks in a more acceptable light.
So basically, our brains are hardwired to want something sugary later in the day.
So that next time you give in? Blame it on your brain, even though your tastebuds totally wanted that sugary treat too.
