Your inherited DNA drives your hunger
Ever wonder why seeing, smelling, or tasting a delicious treat makes you suddenly feel hungry? Thank your ancient ancestors. You inherited DNA from them that tell your body to be hungry when food is near.
Ancient instincts and modern foods
Our ancestors who found enough food to survive passed their food instincts on to us. These instincts are what drive us to eat today. Unlike our ancestors, we can easily find food in a matter of minutes, making our food instincts hard to ignore.
