Yesterday we spoke about how our brains get accustomed to overeating and want more. Today we visit a BLOG that talks about a key shift in the brain that causes overeating. It states:

 

A team of American and Italian neuroscientists has identified a cellular change in the brain that accompanies obesity. The findings could explain the body’s tendency to maintain undesirable weight levels, rather than an ideal weight, and identify possible targets for pharmacological efforts to address obesity.

 

I wish they would look for natural ways to overcome this and not just pharmacological means. We train our brains by how we think, what we eat, stress and what we believe. The brain then tries to give us what we want. This unfortunately is not always what is best for us.
