Building neurotransmitters for healthy eating behavior

James Greenblatt, M.D. and Kelly Heim, Ph.D.

Abstract
Eating is the instinctive and life-sustaining response to the sensation of hunger. However, in developed countries where food is abundant, emotional and neurochemical cues, not hunger, comprise the predominant motives of food consumption. Indeed, eating evokes positive emotions due to food-induced changes in brain chemistry. For over four million Americans, the desire to maintain this emotional reward on an ongoing basis drives consumption of more calories than the body needs.
