New Brunswick, NJ - The researchers at Rutgers found in a new study that overindulging especially in high-fat food could be caused not by a lack of fortitude, but by the unmanageable hormonal response triggered by an imbalance in the brain. If a person lacks the willpower to stop over eating, the best way a person can deal with such ordeal is to have a series of strategic fight-back foods ready. These are foods that will keep the cravings of a person at bay and at the same time have their brain satisfied by signaling to the stomach that it is full. Foods that can stop overeating are actually available.
