For all of us who have struggled with weight issues for years, a new study just released by NIH shows obese people process information about food differently than thin people. The study just released by NIH indicates that when obese people are exposed to food cues like the sight or smell of food, they experience more activity in the habit forming region of the brain than do thin people. Although this brain activity correlates with unconscious eating, in other words eating driven by habit rather than hunger, it sure does help to answer the age old question, "Why did I eat that when I really wasn't hungry"?
