A full tummy makes us more relaxed and more eager to receive romantic energies that will wrap us in the passionate red ribbons of love.
To make their findings, researchers have looked at brain activity using MRI scans for both hungry and satiated women who were either facing a post dietary period or who had never had dieted before. Both groups of women had greater brain activation as a response to romantic pictures. Their reward related neural regions were lit-up, especially after eating when hungry. If our body is at rest from any potential lacks, our hearts become more eager to receive the energy of love.
The interesting findings come to contradict past hypothesis that people are generally inclined to respond more strongly to other rewarding stimuli such as money, food or drugs when hungry.

Everything is nevertheless related some way or another, so heart responds to satisfaction of certain kinds. No wonder the way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach, as food has always been a great aphrodisiac.
Highly satisfactory food cues included hot temptations such as chocolate cake, while a neutral temptation was found in carrots and generally veggies. Furthermore, historical dieters are more at risk for weight gain as they are constantly predisposed by their brain reward circuitry to crave for more food.
Typically, any woman would say that it takes a lot more than a great meal to be swept off her feet but the study is nevertheless a highly interesting overview on the way food and romance could influence our brains.
In order to receive and respond to all energies that surround us, we should learn more about the ways our bodies act and react. When one knows their body, they can do all necessary in order to prepare it for everything that will come sooner or later in life. And a woman most certainly must be prepared for everything at any given moment.
