Comfort Food Science Infographic

Just to let you know, this post was written before I started the paleo diet to help ease my psoriasis. Nowadays I eat a more allergy-friendly diet, but leave these older, non-paleo posts up in case they are useful to readers, as I know not everyone eats the same as I do. Thanks for your understanding. 

Wading through various websites for facts and figures can be dull; I know that. Which is why I made this little infographic, all about our favourite subject.

So now you can see how comfort food affects your body, why we crave it and also rejoice in the fact that we seem to be tucking into it whether we're happy or sad - all in one glance.

I hope you enjoy it, and please feel free to share, pin or link back to it here. 

Were any of the statistics in this infographic a surprise? 


  1. I definitely concur with a lot of those findings! Cheese and bread are my comfort foods.

    1. Cheese is my weakness - I find it so hard to restrain myself when it comes to cheese!
