Obese and Lean Men are Tastes Apart

Saturday 17th July 2010 

Obese people respond to the taste of fat in a different way than their slimmer counterparts, new research shows. A report released at the annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behaviour showed that obese people were less likely to be able to taste fat - perhaps explaining why they found it more difficult to moderate their dietary fat intake.

The new findings emerged after researchers at the University of Adelaide carried out a comparative study between slim and obese men by asking them to identify the taste of fat in various food and drink products. The scientists found that obese men were less likely to be able to identify the taste of fat and were less likely to produce a fat-fighting appetite suppressing hormone.  Researchers believe that the findings could be key to battling the bulge as the volume of food we eat is largely shaped by how we respond to taste.
