From an obesity and neuroscience researcher with a knack for engaging, humorous storytelling, The Hungry Brain uses cutting-edge science to answer the questions: why do we overeat, and what can we do about it? No one wants to overeat. And certainly no one wants to overeat for years, become overweight, and end up with a high risk of diabetes or heart disease--yet two thirds of Americans do precisely that. Even though we know better, we often eat too much. Why does our behavior betray our own intentions to be lean and healthy? The problem, argues obesity and neuroscience researcher Stephan J. Guyenet, is not necessarily a lack of willpower or an incorrect understanding of what to eat. Rather, our appetites and food choices are led astray by ancient, instinctive brain circuits that play by the rules of a survival game that no longer exists. And these circuits don’t care about how you look in a bathing suit next summer. To make the case, The Hungry Brain takes readers on an eye-opening journey through cutting-edge neuroscience that has never before been available to a general audience. The Hungry Brain delivers profound insights into why the brain undermines our weight goals and transforms these insights into practical guidelines for eating well and staying slim. Along the way, it explores how the human brain works, revealing how this mysterious organ makes us who we are.

'ESSENTIAL' —The New York Times Have you ever wished you could just stop eating the cake, even as you put another forkful in your mouth? Have you ever wondered why exactly you are still eating chips when you are definitely full? This book has the answers. The Hungry Brain isn’t about denying yourself the food you love, or never eating pudding again, but the bottom line is that we often eat too much and don’t really know why; Guyenet will help the reader to understand exactly why – and more importantly, what to do about it. ‘Many people have influenced my thinking on human nutrition and metabolism, but Stephan is the one person who has completely altered my understanding of why we get fat.’ Robb Wolf, author of the New York Times bestseller The Paleo Solution 'For those interested in the complex science of overeating, it is essential' The New York Times

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, FOOD AND FITNESSA NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, SCIENCE ONE OF THE "BEST DIETS 2016" (NPR'S THE SALT) AND "10 MOST EXCITING HEALTHY BOOKS TO READ IN 2016," (WELL + GOOD) Leading Harvard Medical School expert and "obesity warrior" (TIME magazine) rewrites the rules on weight loss, diet, and health. Forget everything you've been taught about dieting. In the New York Times bestseller ALWAYS HUNGRY?, renowned endocrinologist Dr. David Ludwig explains why traditional diets don't work, and presents a radical new plan to help you lose weight without hunger, improve your health, and feel great.For over two decades, Dr. Ludwig has been at the forefront of research into weight control. His groundbreaking studies show that overeating doesn't make you fat; the process of getting fat makes you overeat. That's because fat cells play a key role in determining how much weight you gain or lose. Low-fat diets work against you, by triggering fat cells to hoard more calories for themselves, leaving too few for the rest of the body. This "hungry fat" sets off a dangerous chain reaction that leaves you feeling ravenous as your metabolism slows down. Cutting calories only makes the situation worse-creating a battle between mind and metabolism that we're destined to lose. You gain more weight, even as you struggle to eat less food. ALWAYS HUNGRY? turns dieting on its head with a three-phase program that ignores calories and targets fat cells directly. The recipes and meal plan include luscious high fat foods (like nuts and nut butters, full fat dairy, avocados, and dark chocolate), savory proteins, and natural carbohydrates. The result? Fat cells release their excess calories and you lose weight-and inches-without battling cravings and constant hunger. This is dieting without deprivation.Forget calories. Forget cravings. Forget dieting. ALWAYS HUNGRY? reveals a liberating new way to tame hunger and lose weight . . . for good.

Based on Gabor Maté’s two decades of experience as a medical doctor and his groundbreaking work with the severely addicted on Vancouver’s skid row, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts radically reenvisions this much misunderstood field by taking a holistic approach. Dr. Maté presents addiction not as a discrete phenomenon confined to an unfortunate or weak-willed few, but as a continuum that runs throughout (and perhaps underpins) our society; not a medical "condition" distinct from the lives it affects, rather the result of a complex interplay among personal history, emotional, and neurological development, brain chemistry, and the drugs (and behaviors) of addiction. Simplifying a wide array of brain and addiction research findings from around the globe, the book avoids glib self-help remedies, instead promoting a thorough and compassionate self-understanding as the first key to healing and wellness. In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts argues persuasively against contemporary health, social, and criminal justice policies toward addiction and those impacted by it. The mix of personal stories—including the author’s candid discussion of his own "high-status" addictive tendencies—and science with positive solutions makes the book equally useful for lay readers and professionals.

Previous studies in rodents have shown that chronic stress increases palatable food intake, which, in turn, increases mesenteric fat and inhibits acute stress-induced hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis activity. The effect of chronic stress on eating behavior in humans is less understood, but it may be linked to HPA responsivity. We tested the influence of chronic social stress and acute stress reactivity on food choice and food intake. Forty-one perimenopausal women categorized as high chronic stress or low chronic stress were subjected to the Trier Social Stress Task or a control task (nature movie) to examine HPA responses to an acute laboratory stressor and then invited to eat from a provided buffet containing low- and high- calorie "comfort" snacks. Women reporting higher chronic stress and exhibiting low cortisol reactivity to the acute stress task consumed significantly more calories from chocolate cake on both stress and control visits. Chronic stress in the low cortisol reactor group was also positively related to total fat mass, % region of fat, and stress-induced negative mood. Further, women reporting high chronic stress consumed significantly less vegetables, but only in those aged 45 years and older. Chronic stress in women within the higher age category was positively related to total calories consumed at the buffet, stress-induced negative mood and food craving. Given that stress has been linked to increases in palatable food intake, conceivably chronic stress could directly or indirectly affect regions of the brain that potentiate the desire to find and consume these palatable foods through the development of habits and memory association with these types of these behaviors. We therefore conducted a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study in high and low chronic stress women based on Wheaton Social Stress Index scores examining the effects of food cues in high calorie (HiCal), lower calorie (LoCal), and non-food (Control) categories. Thirty-four normal to overweight women were subjected to HiCal, LowCal, and Control images in an event-related design. Women in the high chronic stress group, compared to low chronic stress, showed significantly increased activity in the regions associated with emotional processing and memory (amygdala and hippocampus), habit formations (basal ganglia) and motivation (anterior cingulate cortex). In addition, there was decreased activity in regions associated with cognitive control (anterior prefrontal cortex) in the contrast of HiCal vs. LowCal. These results suggest that chronic stress can affect multiple regions of the brain to enhance the desire for palatable food, possibly through the development of habits, memory consolidation and reduced executive function in the prefrontal cortex. While much is known about the effects of stress and HPA activity on the drive for palatable foods, less is known about the effects of palatable foods on the HPA axis activity. Alterations in diurnal glucocorticoid rhythms can significantly affect energy metabolism and behavior. Overconsumption of sugar can significantly alter basal and stress-induced glucocorticoid concentrations in rodent models. Although diets containing a significant amount of its calories from sugar, namely fructose or sucrose, can detrimentally affect glucose and lipid metabolism in humans, very little is known about the effects of sugar consumption on 24-hour circulating cortisol profiles in humans. We investigated the effects of dietary fructose and glucose on 24-hour cortisol concentrations in women and men during a 10-week intervention. During the 2-week long baseline period, all subjects consumed a complex carbohydrate diet (3 meals/day). During the intervention phase, subjects were provided with fructose- or glucose-sweetened beverages to be consumed with each of 3 meals along with their usual ad libitum diet for the first 8 weeks and then participated in inpatient metabolic studies for the last 2 weeks in which they continued consuming fructose- or glucose-sweetened beverages as a part of an energy-balanced diet. The 24-hour serial blood collections taken at 0 and 10 weeks were preceded by 10 days of energy-balanced feeding. After 10 weeks of fructose consumption, average daily cortisol concentrations were elevated (p
