After Drinking, It’s Not The Alcohol Content That Makes You Crave Food

It’s human nature to want to get a bite to eat after a night on the town, but it’s not the amount of alcohol that makes you crave food.  So what is it.  We’ve all seen Mel’s at 2AM.

A study in Neuropsychopharmacology, found that it’s not the alcohol content that triggers food cravings, but rather the taste.

The study involved 49 male beer drinkers, average age 25.

When researchers gave participants a small taste of their favorite beer (nowhere near enough to make them feel the effects of the alcohol), it activated the pleasure centers of their brains, raising feel-good dopamine levels and that’s the reason you crave food.

If you’ve had too much to drink, there are ways to remedy the affects of a hangover.
