There’s another reason you should limit high-fat foods in your diet. A recent study published in the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior found that high-fat foods can alter the bacteria residing inside your gut. These changes in the gut micro flora impact the way fullness is interpreted by the brain.
High-fat foods cause your brain signals to change. As a result, the brain can no longer sense indications of fullness, which can trigger overeating – a leading cause of obesity.
