Why dieting makes you yearn for junk food

Why dieting makes you yearn for junk food

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER
Last updated at 7:59 AM on 1st December 2010


As any dieter knows, when the going gets tough, chips and chocolate are all the more appealing.

But it may not be simply a case of absence making the heart grow fonder.

Experiments suggest rapid weight loss alters the way the brain handles stress.


Fancy a burger? Dieters trying to steer clear of fatty food may find that the stress proves too much

This means that when dieters are put under stress, even after they finish dieting, they are attracted to fatty foods. So dieting could actually end up making you fatter.

The American researchers looked at the effect of dieting on the brains and appetite of mice.

The animals’ food supply was cut by a quarter and they lost up to 15 per cent of their weight.

There were also important alterations to genes key to stress, while appetite and levels of stress hormones rose, the Journal of Neuroscience reports.

The researchers, from the University of Pennsylvania, then allowed the mice to eat normally and they regained the weight.

Initially, the ex-dieters ate similar amounts to mice that had never been put on a diet.

But when the researchers stressed the mice, for example by making noise, the ex-dieters gorged on fatty food.

Researcher Dr Tracy Bale said: ‘These results suggest that dieting not only increases stress, making successful dieting more difficult, but may “reprogramme” how the brain responds to future stress.’

It is a fact that eating fatty, oily or sugary food make you happy. That why coke is so popular. Chocolate is delicious. Dried pork lard is yummy.

The more you diet, the worse the craving will be. Must persevere.

not really bro.

it's all about your lifestyle. I've seen people eat clean for years. Fast food have addictive which make people wants more.



Even so I got to say I hate coke, chocolate isn't the most delicious food in the world and I don't eat pork.

IMO, it is the same concept as taking drugs.

I think having a balanced healthy diet is important but you must also enjoy a bit. Otherwise what's the point of living? It's like people save save save and never truly enjoy what life has to offer (and I don't just mean material possessions).

Being a working adult I find it hard to make time for exercise. It's my new years resolution! Hope I stick to it.

In the meantime I'm exploring body shapers. Has anyone used before? Any comments/reviews?
