Have we evolved to desire and crave energy rich food consisting of fats and sugars? Do we become sated sooner on proteins compared to fats and sugars? The answer is probably yes! Either way, these doughnuts look awesome!

Such a craving that was rarely rewarded in our evolutionary past, due to the rarity of such energy rich food, would have been beneficial, but we have now used our technological mastery, combined with our craving, to make fats and sugars readily available, to our detriment in this modern novel environment we have not yet had time to evolve in response to. On the flip side, we are still prone to extreme laziness, in order to conserve our hard won energy (this is why getting the elevator is always so appealing), even though we have more calories than we could ever need nowadays!
