Sugar free treats dont satisfy

Interesting discovery. Scientists found out that when you eat a sweet treat, at least 2 parts of your brain light up. One says "its sweet". The other says " I'm satisfied".

Sugar substitutes only make the first part of the brain light up. So sugar free food make you want to eat more.
