(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Women with weight problems were more impulsive than average in a food-related test.

do you experience food craving just by looking at images of delectable food items regardless of how recently you had eaten? check if you are overweight.

“some people may have an instinctive psychological predisposition to binge eating” said claus voegele a professor of clinical and health psychology at the university of luxembourg in luxembourg.

women with weight problems were more impulsive than average in a food-related psychology test.

“all addictions are similar in that the sufferer craves to excess the feel-good buzz they receive from chemical neurotransmitters produced when they eat gamble smoke have s** or take drugs” voegele added.

for the test images of fatty or sweet food (a burger cake or pizza etc.) and non-food items (a sock a mug or a shoe etc.) were flashed at random on a computer screen.

the women were structed to click as fast as possible on either the food or non-food pictures.

tests were run either three hours after eating or just after meals.

the researchers found that several women with weight problems said the test had provoked food craving regardless of how recently they had eaten.

tax soft drinks to curb obesity?

would you stop guzzling fizzy drinks if you had to pay tax on it? a recent study has come up with the view that tax could be an effective weapon in the war against obesity as individuals reduce their consumption. soft drink taxes already apply in some countries and many us states tax carbonated drinks at an average rate of 3.5 per cent. a 20 per cent sales tax would raise annual costs per person by about 15 to 17. but in weight-loss terms average consumption would drop by more than 2388 calories a quarter.
