Feeling stressed out? Well, I’m sure most people (now be honest, everyone) have had the experience of feeling an uncontrollable urge to consume ridiculous amounts of cake or ice cream after being under stress or just extremely tired from having a million things to take care of in a day.

See the answer below!

Ha, so that’s why a chocolate sundae or cream puff looks so good after a day’s work! Sorry if you were expecting a serious answer, but at least the next time you feel guilty about wanting that piece of cake after a particularly stressful experience (including break-ups, traffic jams and going through security at the airport), you can remember this post and smile about it.
