When choosing between salad and pizza, many of you would have chosen poor quality and fatty foods instead of healthy foods. You will choose pizza. But, in the new brain research conducted at Tufts University and published in the journal “Nutrition & Diabetes”, scientists have proven that adults can be trained to choose healthy foods and avoid the unhealthy.

The addiction to eating fatty foods (French fries, wheat pasta, etc.) occurs over time. Constantly eating these foods and the intake of these toxins, the body becomes addicted to fat.

In this scientific study, researchers scanned the brains of 13 people. They intervened on eight of them in terms of losing weight. They were subjected to the diet to achieve specific dietary goals. These representatives were encouraged to get 25% energy from protein and fat, 50% of low-glycemic carbohydrates, and 40 grams of fiber a day.

Sensitivity to Healthy Foods

After six months, during the second scan, the people who have executed intervention in the brain (associated with dependence and learning changes), had active and positive changes in sensitivity to healthy foods and less sensitivity to caloric foods. Of course, they had success in losing weight. On the other, the situation remained unchanged.

Therefore, this study has proved that it is possible to change your food cravings. You can increase the desire for healthy foods and reduce the supremacy of junk foods. This is possible by combining the ways that are crucial for maintaining and controlling weight.

Conclusion: Obesity is associated with hyperactivity, where you avoid healthy foods and opt for bad option, which offers a high-calorie intake. However, you can change this degree of hyperactivity with intervention on the choice of food and changes in your habits.

Participants, who have executed intervention, achieved significant weight loss. Favoring the LC vs. HC food was very important.

Results: This study offers the first demonstration of positive changes in activating the brain when choosing healthy foods. It provides new opportunities to improve treatments against obesity.
