As a walking transporter of disease, the zombie is merely a puppet under the control of the virus (or whatever origin you choose). It's only goal is to spread that disease with other suitable hosts. It hunts them down, and as the disease is transmitted via contact with bodily fluid, they will bite the prey. While you can argue that the zombies will continue to eat the victim, it can be rationalized in a more scientific way. The virus degrades the host brain, making room for itself. It gets rid of any unnecessary areas of the brain, one such location it could deem unnecessary could be the thalamus, which monitors hunger. It has been seen in rats and other test animals, remove that portion of the brain and the subject will simply eat and only stop when there is nothing left. This could explain the incessant eating of corpses, and when coupled with a sole desire to spread disease, it creates the flesh craving monster we all know and love.

Speaking of the supernatural,   
I always thought it'd be cool if the reason Vampires drink blood is not because that's what they eat for hunger, but rather their bodies don't produce blood anymore, but still need it to survive. Has any movie, book, etc., ever used this idea?

That is why I eat a High-carb vegan diet.

My body is made on a cellular level from fruits and vegetables.
