Your cof­fee may be the rea­son, a new study from Cor­nell Univer­sity finds. When peo­ple drank equally sweet­ened de­caf or reg­u­lar cof­fee, they rated the de­caf as sweeter. Caf­feine may tem­po­rar­ily dull your sen­si­tiv­ity to dessert by block­ing re­cep­tors for sweet in your taste buds, ex­plains study au­thor Dr. Robin Dando. This may make dough­nuts ex­tra tempt­ing. “If you eat some­thing sug­ary, but the sen­sa­tion is dulled, you might want some­thing even sweeter the next time,” Dando says.
