Study: Women are more open to romance on a full stomach

Women’s brains respond more to romantic cues on a full stomach than an empty one, new research shows.

During the study, women were told to look at neutral and romantic images on an empty stomach. And then the pictures were shown again, but after the participants had consumed 500 calories.

The experiment showed that women responded better to romantic images on a full stomach. The areas of the brain that respond to reward became more active in the second case.

This reaction may happen because when people are hungry, it’s just hard for them to think about anything else except food. After eating, they relax and become more open to things. But that is not all.

Besides the connection between a full stomach and romantic relationships, it’s equally important how the food itself influences romance.

Researchers showed that sweeter tastes allowed the participants to handle romantic words better than unromantic ones.

The main thing is to not forget to order dessert. Of course, romance means mutual feelings, chemistry, emotions, interests. But, as we have already understood, we can’t underestimate the power of food in this matter.
