Snack study shows people choose unhealthy option

Even if you have good intentions to eat healthy -- when faced with a savory snack -- your sweet tooth might take over.

Researchers in the Netherlands polled over 500 people on whether they would eat a healthy or unhealthy snack if one was available. The following week they provided food, and found nearly 30 percent of the people who said they would eat healthy chose the unhealthy snack.

The most alarming finding - more than half of those surveyed said they would choose the unhealthy snack.
