Protein VS. Sugar

Eating a lot of proteins like peanut butter, chicken, steak, eggs satisfy hunger and make your stomach feel full and lasts longer.

Foods like chips, cookies, cake, ice cream all are full of sugar and starches which do not last as long and makes you keep eating until you feel full.

How do moods affect hunger?

Stress- Eat more

Happiness- Eat more

Illness- Eat less

Fatigue- Eat less

Cultural expectations- Eat more

Dieting Pills

One dieting pill that is prescribed by Doctors called Xenical.

This pill blocks from absorbing a third of the fat that you eat, since you are not gaining fat you begin to lose lots of weight.

Some side affects are cramping, gas and uncontrollable bowel movements.

The negative affects are there has been rare cases of severe liver injury.

You are still able to eat whatever you want and not have to count calories because your body isn't physically absorbing as much fat. That i how it affects the brain.

The intrinsic reward from the pills is, feeling better about yourself on the inside.

The extrinsic reward is being able to fit into the smaller dress sizes, and being smaller.

Anorexia

Anorexia is an eating disorder where they refuse to maintain a healthy body weight, they have a intense fear of gaining weight.

So people force themselves to throw up.

They take laxatives.

Affects the brain because when they look at their body in the mirror they see fat instead of how their body really looks.

It also affects the brain and other organs because they are not getting the correct nutrients from foods because they are either not eating or throwing up what they do eat.
