Obese stomachs tell us diets are doomed to fail
The way the stomach detects and tells our brains how full we are becomes damaged in obese people but does not return to normal once they lose weight, according to new research from the
University of Adelaide
. Researchers believe this could be a key reason why most people who lose weight on a diet eventually put that weight back on. In laboratory studies, University of Adelaide Ph.D. student Stephen Kentish investigated the impact of a high-fat diet on the gut's ability to signal fullness, and whether those changes revert back to normal by losing weight.
