Why Can’t We Love Healthy Food Like We Love Fattening Foods?

Have you ever wished you could get as excited about a plate full of carrots as you do for a plate of french fries or Oreos? Imagine how much healthier and leaner you would be if you craved the foods packed with vitamins and nutrients, rather than the ones packed with fat.

A recent study published in the Journal of Lipid Research attempts to explain why humans seem to love fatty foods so much. It turns out that these guilty pleasures may come from the way taste buds are made. Researchers from the Washington School of Medicine in St. Louis found that the tongue may recognize and have a yearning for fat.

This affinity to fat is something that researchers think is at least partially predisposed by one’s genetic make up, possibly explaining obesity in some families.

If you know that your diet mostly consists of foods lacking in proper nutrients, consider an all natural supplement that can provide you with your recommended daily value of fruits and vegetables. Ultimate Reds can give you better nutrition, even when your taste buds are craving the bad stuff.
