The higher the quantity of the hormone ghrelin in your blood, the more hungry you feel. But now it has also been shown that you also feel better by it when you eat. Also when you have actually eaten enough already.
Researchers at the UT Southwestern Medical Center conducted research into this hunger hormone with mice. When the mice were given ghrelin together with a fatty meal, the mice liked to stay in the space where they had found that food. Even when the food was finished. The hunger hormone ghrelin made them associate the food with good feelings.
Mice who were not given the hormone together with their food, went to other spaces with food without problem. They didn’t have to association between good feelings and the food.
The mice who got ghrelin also tried to get extra food for more time. According to the researchers this process can explain why some people still want a calorie rich dessert even though they are already full from the main course.
