High Fat Diet Impairs Brain's Ability To Self-Regulate Food Intake

Love to Eat| The headline is misleading in new research about the effects of a high-fat diet on the brain. The story gives no insights as to why some people who eat a high-fat diet remain slim and others become obese. And while it’s true that willpower doesn’t rule in this new scientific understanding of obesity, researchers aren’t saying that humans have no ability to take action against obesity.

Researchers now have a clearer understanding of how a high-fat diet impacts brain function.
