Don't worry you aren't the only one that get's first date butterflies every time you see your server walking towards your table with your food. You're not alone when you count down the minutes until you can go home and devour an entire block of cheese. We've all been there because, yes, it is true that your brain thinks food and sex are the same thing.

I mean, if you think about it food is just like having a boyfriend/girlfriend. You take pictures of it/them when they look good. You're happy when it/they are around. You're sad when it/they leave. They are both better when you're drunk.

Come on, the similarities are undeniable! So, I guess it kind of does make sense that your brain would think eating is so glorious.

According to Spoon University, there are four reasons why our brain get's so much pleasure out of an epic meal:

  1. It engages your brain.
  2. It uses your senses.
  3. It's human nature.
  4. It starts with an attraction.
