    What kind of fats were used? And what else were the rats fed? And what is a natural diet for rats compared to humans? This study, like all others that we pay for twice (once to conduct them, then to pay for the results of the advice given on the basis of faulty conclusions), is worthless.

    So damn typical really. Hmm rats like to eat fat. Gets them high! Cool.

    First leap of faith: This is a bad thing in rats. Second leap of faith: We don't have a clue what to make of it but fatty foods make rats fat. Third leap of faith: It will do the same of humans.

    And drum roll: They can come up with a DRUG to cure this.

    F*cking idiots.

    That sums up "research" based on studies.

    The big problem isn't the association that the body makes between taste and nutrition: it's what allowed us to survive in the first place. The problem is when those associations are skewed by evolutionary novel foods -- basically, we end up craving the wrong things. Sure, fatty foods make us want more -- to a point. And if that food was genuinely nutritious, the body gets the signal that it doesn't need more. If it wasn't, and here's where plenty of modern foods fail, then the body sustains or increases the craving since the underlying nutritional need was not met.

    Usually fatty foods make me full faster. And I'm not a rat. And which fats were the rats eating?

    Note that their examples of "fatty foods" were all high carb foods as well: "potato chips, ice cream, chocolate brownies"

    I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.
