This home-study course outlines the various factors that make foods palatable. It provides evidence that the "hyperpalatability" of our current food supply is undermining our normal satiety signals, motivating the drive to eat even when there is no physiologic need for food. This course presents evidence that repeated exposure to high quantities of palatable foods (i.e., those high in sugar, fat and salt) can alter the brain in ways similar to drugs of abuse, essentially "rewiring" the brain to promote compulsive eating and loss of control over food.
