Is it possible to trick your brain into craving healthier snacks instead of junk food?
A new study says absolutely.
Researchers say participants were offered healthier meals for six months and only took in about 500-1,000 calories a day.
At the end of the six months, MRI scans revealed the low-calorie options stimulated their brains instead of the usually appealing high-calorie foods, like french fries.
The study was published in the journal Nutrition & Diabetes.
