Explaining Food Impulsivity
Having a healthy lifestyle is perhaps one of the most challenging things to achieve. It requires great discipline to follow the work out routine and, of course, the meal plan. The food you eat while on a diet plays a huge role in the weight or body you want to achieve. However, resisting your favorite food is difficult, which often leads to "cheat" days and food impulsivity. The researchers from the University of Georgia explained this type of impulsivity.
The researchers were able to identify a specific circuit in the brain that explains the reason behind food impulsivity. The team used advanced techniques to study this behavior well. The findings were published in a journal called Nature Communications and can someday help develop therapeutics for overeating. Discover why we tend to overeat today.
