THE DATING STAGE BETWEEN HUMANS AND FOOD. THE BELOVED ITEM

Our relationship with food is complicated by ongoing communication between our brain and gut, and by our need for energy as well as our need for rewards. The sight and smell of food entices us to eat, so we know our eyes and noses play just as much a role in eating as our mouths. All of our senses; our “gut brain” or enteric nervous system; our microbiome (the natural bacteria that live in our digestive tract); our genetic make-up, and an array of hormones, enzymes and neurons all work together and contribute to feelings of hunger and fullness, the development of food preferences, food cravings, eating habits, and our potential to lose and gain weight.
