In Inka Millenium we always deliver relevant information.

A study at Tufts University in collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital, researchers have succeeded in brain mechanisms that make us want to eat foods rich in sugars, fats and carbohydrates, can be changed with healthier food

Healthy Food

Healthy Food

The premise with departing researchers is that, in obese people, the brain had established strong mechanisms to reward caloric food that was impossible to reverse. But to work were made.

The researchers took a group of 8 people and put them in a healthy diet. Before, both them and the control group was not going to follow the diet, underwent an MRI to get a “picture” of the brain before the experiment. After six months, they have discovered that it is possible to alter the brain’s perception regarding those foods and the answer is the same as the other group that based its power in more caloric food.

In the resonance performed at the end of the trial period, the areas of the brain responsible for reward center associated with addiction and learning had been altered. They had become more receptive to the food of the diet of those six months and began to provide the same feelings of satisfaction and pleasure with less healthy meals. In addition, reward mechanisms by eating “junk food” had weakened.
The researchers, despite this breakthrough, remains cautious. Studies should expand the number of them and not ignore more brain mechanisms associated with how we eat.
