There's a new theory in this story from the New York Times about why we're (and I'm looking in the mirror on this one) overweight, but also, always hungry. From what I read, it seems we keep feeding our fat cells but not the rest of our bodies - and that makes us think we need to eat more - and that just feeds the fat cells and then we're hungry again and, well, you get the picture.

Here's a quote: "We get hungrier because we’re getting fatter."

It all comes down to the chips and cake and bad carbohydrates. Like we didn't know that.

Here's the link - good luck.
