It was once believed that being overweight was healthy, but
nowadays few people subscribe to this viewpoint. While many people
are fighting the battle to reduce weight, studies are being conducted
concerning the appetite and how it is controlled by both emotional
and biochemical factors. Some of the conclusions of these studies
may give insights into how to deal with weight problems. For
example, when several hundred people were asked about their
eating habits in times of stress, 44 percent said they reacted to
stressful situations by eating. Further investigations with both
humans and animals indicated that it is not food which release
tension but rather the act of chewing.
A test in which subjects were blindfolded showed that obese
people have a keener sense of taste and crave more flavorful food
than non- obese people. When deprived of the variety and intensity
of taste, obese people are not satisfied and consequently eat more
to fulfill this need. Blood samples taken from people after they were
shown a picture of food revealed that overweight people reacted with
an increase in blood insulin, a chemical associated with appetite.
This did not happen to average-weight people.
In another experiment, results showed that certain people have a
specific, biologically induced hunger for carbohydrates subsides.
Eating carbohydrates raises the level of serotonin, a
neurotransmitter in the brain. Enough serotonin produces a sense of
satiation, and hunger for carbohydrates subsides.
