Do you live to eat, or do you eat to live? When I first heard that question decades ago, I constantly thought about it. Now that I just learned about a study completed by Brigham Young University about late night snacking, I can’t stop thinking about that question again.
Maybe if we truly understand what propels us to constantly nosh, we can teach ourselves not to give in?
Brigham Young University claims we crave food at midnight because our brains are less stimulated by food and that means we are never satisfied. In other words, we compensate.
