The Reasons People Are Hungry & Gain Weight After Eating Fatty Food

Why Are You So Hungry After Eating Greasy And Fatty Food?


According to recent research in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, greasy and fatty food can increase your appetite for many days afterwards.

Maybe that could explain the number of fast fatty food addicts who are obese ?!

Our Ancestors And Meat

The research findings which appear to explain why you feel extra hungry after a weekend of eating pizza, burgers and cheesy fries, and it hearken back to a time when our ancestors gorged on fatty food, such as meat, whenever it became available, because they didn’t know when their next successful hunt would provide more food.

How The Studies Were Conducted

In the study, researchers gave two types of fat to mice in addition to their regular diets.
One was palmitic acid, a saturated fat found in beef, butter, cheese and palm oil.
The other, oleic acid, which is a healthier fat common in found in olive oil, fish, nuts and soybeans.

After just three days the brains of the mice being given palmitic acid became resistant to the appetite-suppressing hormones leptin and insulin.

The mice being given oleic acid did not react in the same way.

And How About Humans?

Similar research on humans work suggests that the same holds true for them too.

Author Deborah Clegg, Ph.D., R.D., at the University of Texas Southwest Medical Center in Dallas recommends.

  • Do your best to resume a healthy diet after a weekend binge.
  • Start meals with salads instead of bread.
  • Replace alcoholic beverages with water.
  • And eat more slowly by putting your fork down between bites: it normally takes about 20 minutes for your body to register fullness.

FDA - Why Are More And More Americans Dying Because Of The FDA?

Because of increasing delays caused by unnecessary FDA costs, caution, and bureaucracy are preventing the introduction of new drugs and antibiotics which would most likely save tens and maybe even hundreds of thousands of American lives every year!!

New and dangerous bacteria are mutating faster, but the FDA is dragging its feet and is approving new antibiotics at a much slower rate than that at which bacteria are mutating!

Tens And Even Hundreds Of Thousands Of Lives?


Antibiotic-resistant bacteria infect two million Americans every year, causing at least 23,000 deaths.

And even more die from complications related to the infections, and the numbers are steadily growing.

The Cause Of The Delays?

Many reasons are being bandied about for the shortage of new drugs and the FDA is not of course the only reason.

Pharmaceutical companies say that because of rising costs that the cost/benefit risks are too high.

Others say that the overuse of antibiotics is causing the potency of the existing ones to diminish too quickly.

But the chief culprit is the FDA.

Why Is The FDA The Real Villain?

The FDA will often quite unpredictably change its rules in the middle of an expensive clinical trial and suddenly tell a company that it must add hundreds and even thousands of new patients to their tests.

And even when trials are successfully completed the FDA is frequently reluctant to give a new drug the green light.

In his book, ‘Antibiotics: The Perfect Storm‘, David M. Shlaes writes,

"Regulatory agencies like the FDA are contributing to the problem with a constant barrage of clinical trial requirements that make it harder, slower and more costly to develop antibiotics".

"The National Institutes of Health was for many years [biased] against funding antibiotic research".

Shlaes spent his professional life as a top drawer researcher, studying antibiotics and has also worked for pharmaceutical companies and had to cope with the FDA.

The FDA’s Dilemma

a) Approve a medication that later proves to have an unintended side effect after which congressional headline-seekers such as Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) will subject FDA officials to a third degree interrogation.

b) Let people die by depriving them of new medicines.

And the FDA for the most part chooses B!

Since the 1940s the miracle of penicillin and later antibiotics have saved tens of millions of lives, by preventing illnesses such as as pneumonia and tuberculosis.
