Scientists say 'smart food' could tell the brain when to stop eating

There aren't facepalms enough to describe my feelings about this...

Quote:Smart foods that tell the brain you have eaten enough could hold the key to beating obesity, researcher have claimed.

A Dutch team has already started work on the intelligent foods that could one day help the world beat obesity.

They hope the foods will contain a special chemical that mimics the message our gut sends the brain when it is full.

...

'We don’t know much about which nutrients are involved and whether we can manipulate how food interacts with those signalling systems and how those systems are integrated at different levels in the brain.'

The team hope their research could lead to drugs which mimic the message, and hope to eventually make food that can also contain the messages.

'It would be even better if we could come up with smart food,'

It's fat and proteins that make us satiated. Sugar is the poison not to mention HFCS.

The finds in this study:

Quote:Holst discovered a small molecule in the gut, called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which acts on parts of the brain that regulate appetite.

He is now involved with an EU funded research project, Full4Health, to try and find out exactly how the gut tells the brain when it is full.


And an article from yesterday, same rag:

Brain's pleasure centres override chemicals that say we are full
Quote:It is a truth universally acknowledged that however full you are, there’s always room for pudding.

And now there’s a scientific explanation – courtesy of Leon Trotsky’s great granddaughter.

Dr Nora Volkow says that our junk food culture means the chemical signals produced by the stomach to say we are full can no longer override the brain’s pleasure centres.

Throughout evolution, these two systems have co-existed to control fullness. But today, when we are surrounded by sugary desserts and junk food, the balance is disturbed.

This is all about eating right. Loose the majority of the carbs. This seems to function like a cure for bread and sugar.
The more you eat the more you want, they are the crack of foods.

Well not all carbohydrates are created equal. They're not 'evil', it's just better to get them from other sources that don't spike your blood-sugar levels.
