The explanation for this phenomenon lies deep within our past and is part of our very genetic heritage. Back in the days of our hunter-gatherer ancestors, there was always uncertainty about when the next meal would be.

Those whose bodies adapted by learning to store fat efficiently survived and reproduced, passing that ability on to their descendants; the others died out.
