High-fat diets promote hyperphagia in both rats and humans; however, understanding of the process by which dietary fat increases intake is incomplete. Since altering the fat content of a diet simultaneously changes both its sensory properties and postingestive effects, it is unclear whether high-fat diet hyperphagia is driven by oral influences, postingestive factors, or both. Previous findings from both animal and human studies indicate that relatively "less palatable" high-fat diets are… CONTINUE READING
