YORK (Reuters) – Resistance is futile. The more we try to fight off a craving for chocolate, the more our desire for it grows, a British researcher said Tuesday.

“In other words, chocolate is a highly desirable food, but which according to social norms should be eaten with restraint,” he said. “However, attempting to resist the desire to eat chocolate only causes thoughts about chocolate to become more prominent, consequently heightening the desire.”
