Cookies or Carrots? Evolution says Cookies!!

If you’ve ever found yourself heading to the kitchen for a midnight snack and automatically head for the cookies, it may be because that’s what your brain is wired to do!!

Researchers have concluded that our brains naturally tend to head to high calorie snacks rather than the more healthy options. The study found that humans are better at remembering where junk food snacks are in comparison to their healthier counterparts. The experts say the brain may have evolved this way due to hunter/gatherer survival techniques to find high caloric foods when there wasn’t much food around. So don’t feel bad. It’s evolution!!!!
