If we eat them separately, the brain shows less interest in the food. Not only did the fatty-carby foods elicit a greater response in the brain's reward centre, participants also reported that they were willing to spend more money on those particular treats. A new study by Yale University in the U.S. shows that the human brain values foods that are high in both fat and carbohydrates, rather than just fat or carbohydrates. Such carb and fats rich foods have a stronger impact on the reward system of our brain.
The Yale University finding sheds light on how the processed food industry cashes in on the human craving for unhealthy diets.

When humans were hunter-gatherers, we mainly ate plants and animal meat and rarely encountered foods high in fat and carbohydrates, the authors of the study noted.
Scientists believe our past experience with the nutritive properties of carbohydrates releases the feelgood chemical dopamine in the brain through an as-yet-unknown metabolic signal.
"One mechanism by which the modern food environment may promote overeating is by combining fat and carbohydrate to potentiate reward and therefore facilitate the transition to habitual responding as is observed in drugs of abuse".
