Stephan Guyenet sums up the problem of obesity in a crazy food world:

‎”Food intake is regulated by a ‘symphony’ of signals that the brain receives and uses to determine whether or not a person will eat. Some of these signals are from sensory organs and the brain itself, while others are hormones in the circulation coming from the gut, body fat, the pancreas, and elsewhere. This finely tuned system is disrupted when a susceptible person is exposed to abundant, energy-dense, tasty food, in an environment that minimizes physical activity and sleep, and promotes psychological stress.”
