“Unresponsive” can also lead to weight gain
A study by scientists at the University of California on obesity found that obese people are much more dull than normal people, and they spend more time eating than they feel when they eat.
銆€銆€The study, led by an assistant professor in the research department of psychiatric treatment, said that many people began to feel full after 10 minutes of eating, but the brains of obese people delayed a little while transmitting this signal.So obese people eat more things unconsciously.
銆€銆€Researchers at the University of California have identified changes in hormone levels in the human brain during signaling.
They scanned the images of the brains of 10 obese people and 20 normal-weight people. In this way, they found that obese people did take longer to feel full than normal-weight people.
銆€銆€In the United States, there are 30,000 deaths each year due to obesity.
This is second only to the mortality caused by smoking.
Therefore, many scientific researchers are working hard to study the cause of obesity, hoping to find a better treatment.
銆€銆€During the course of the study, every 35 minutes, those volunteers received 350 EEG scans.
Every five minutes, these volunteers receive an intravenous glucose injection to stimulate the body to respond.
銆€銆€The results of the study showed that in the obese population, the hypothalamic response was relatively flat and the response was 4 to 9 minutes slower than those with normal weight.
銆€銆€In the same study, the researchers found that the scent from the foods caused the brain to become addicted, just as nicotine and anesthetics would be addictive.
This also shows that the uncontrollable food is actually caused by the changes in the brain, just like drug use.
銆€銆€The results of this study also show that obesity is also caused by the inability of the body to signal a full stomach in time.
In addition, this tells people an interesting phenomenon: the brain can make a stress response that wants to eat in a timely and effective manner, but it cannot give a “full” signal in time.
銆€銆€The study also found that people have a lot in common with the temptation of food and the temptation of drugs.
This can help doctors to investigate the causes of obesity and better treat the disease.
銆€銆€Suggested treatment: For this, the treatment method can be “behavior correction method”: eat when you are hungry, eat slowly, and let yourself eat less.
