An article about food cravings

Here’s an article about why we crave food and some stategies to try to control those urges.  (The article is a MSNBC article, which to my experience, seems to turn every food related article into some sort of advice about not getting fat or losing weight.)  Reading the whole thing wouldn’t be a bad idea but the most interesting quote, for my money, is this:

but it appears cravings may develop after we eat a combination of fats, carbohydrates, sugar, flavor and texture that’s pleasurable. In a study in which participants were given chocolate and a capsule containing all of the ingredients of chocolate, only the chocolate satisfied people’s cravings. It’s natural to want to replicate that experience or high.
