First of all, intellectual mind burns more calories and secondly, likes sweets very much.
In my favorite book “Thinking, Fast and Slow” Daniel Kahneman explained that when a mind is engaged in analysis or learning, it is influenced by our human, primary system of behavior, and it so happens that this system is a fan of desserts.
It follows that mental effort is not an excuse but a scientifically explained reason for reaching for sweets.
In addition, it only confirms that you are intelligent, capable and put a lot of effort into tasks you work on.
