Get Healthy__ Your Comfort Foods Actually Taste Better When You’re Alone
Does it feels like you're wayyy more likely to eat the whole pint when you're alone versus when you're with your friends? Well, turns out there’s a scientific explanation for that. Comfort foods actually taste better when no one else is around, according to a study in the new journal Appetite.
Researchers found people crave comfort foods when they’re isolated from their friends and family. So grabbing for the foods that make you feel closest to home helps to relieve some of the loneliness.
So next time you grab for that pint of ice cream or start scrolling through Seamless, remember your friends are only a FaceTime away.
