Part of Brain Tied to Overeating

[u]Part of Brain May be Tied to Overeating[/u]
Ever wonder why some people can overeat and never gain weight? Researchers may soon have the answer. They found that when subjects felt full, there was increased activity in a certain part of the brain. A study shows when an overweight person and normal weight person are given the same amount of food, there is less activity in this part of the brain for the overweight subject. This discovery may lead to new ways to fight obesity.
