It seems like most Australians can’t get enough junk food these days. A new study reveals that average Australians eat junk food every day, three times more than the recommended daily intake. By asking more than 40,000 respondents about their eating habits, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) gave Australia a failing score of 61 points out of 100.
We tend to want what we can’t have. But when it comes to cravings, not getting what you want can dampen your desire.
