Looking at Food makes you Fat!: Food Porn
Looking at food lights up the ‘taste cortex’ in the brain. To avoid eating the food, you are now triggering self-restraint mechanism. But this  restraint mechanism is fought by the body’s innate tendency to ‘look out for food.” This leads us to having a craving to eat whatever dish you are looking at even when the body is not hungry. Watching a bake-off show or skimming through food magazines may actually be testing your will power to overcome the desire to eat unnecessarily. 

If (what may have seemed) “harmless fun” is making you guilty, why not just eat some really good food? Book with ChefXChange to have a private chef make your next delicious meal at your comfort.
