Why does chocolate taste better when on a diet? This is the question researchers have asked subjects in a published study. It was discovered that subjects felt guilty when eating such treats, but the pleasure centre in their brain was enhanced upon eating such a treat. The subjects were each given one of two magazines to read, and the subjects who ate chocolate after reading a health magazine enjoyed the chocolate more.
