How do carbohydrates affect the brain’s reward center? Harvard Medical School just published a brand new study in the Journal of Nutrition on this very topic!
They examined 72 overweight adults over 20 weeks, comparing a low carb/high fat, moderate carb/fat, and a high carb/low fat diet along with MRI scans of their brains in a fasted state before eating each day and four hours after their first meal each day.
In this video I share details on their study design and findings.
This study showed how differently varying levels of carbohydrates and fats affect the brain – literally shown on their brain scans!
How does this make you feel about the foods you’ve been eating?
