WOW! Who knew?

I thought this was interesting. I know I have a chemical imbalance, and sometimes when I eat things I shouldn't, it does feel like my brain/body is trying to pull these sensations from what I'm eating,to make up for the lack of it. To the point where going off of things like sugar does give me some withdrawal feelings, headaches, intense cravings, mood swings.

But in all that, I thought I was getting MORE pleasure, not less then other people in what I was eating. I'm not convinced either way, but it's a reverse way to look at it for me.

You want some irony with those fries? According to a new paper, one of the reasons obese people keep on eating is that they actually get less pleasure not more from the food they eat.

Seventy-six young women were put in a brain scanner and given a sip of a chocolate milkshake. A machine then analyzed the activity in a part of the brain the striatum that responds to desserts. Sure enough, women who got less satisfaction from eating were more likely to eat more, in a vain attempt to trigger their pleasure centers.

Next, scientists looked at subtle genetic differences and found that over time, women with a gene that leads to a reduced number of dopamine receptors tended to gain large amounts of weight: Because they never experienced the rush of delight most of us get from a milkshake, they compensated with way too many all-you-can-eat buffets.
