Scientific Study Proves Overeating is an Addiction
Dr. Lennerz made two milkshakes, one with a high and one with a low glycaemic index. Otherwise both milkshake had the same ingredients. The shakes were then given,on different days, in a random order to 12 heathy overweight men.
After 4 hours the men who had drank the high glycaemic were hungrier than those who drank the low glycaemic shakes .
MRI's were done on the men that showed activation of the nucleus accumbens, a brain area that meditates pleasure eating and craving. Similar patterns in the brain have been found in people after consuming drugs such as heroin or cocaine.
