I ran into an interesting article earlier today on the differences in the ability to suppress hunger between men and women.
Apparently, women are worse than men at suppressing hunger. When the researchers ran their study, they asked the participants to try a technique (cognitive inhibition) to suppress their hunger. Though both sexes claimed they were suppressing their hunger, the women’s brains were still firing in the hunger areas whereas the men’s brains were quiet.
Now this may just be proving that men are better at cognitive inhibition, and that another technique could work better for women. But I think it’s an interesting study, nonetheless. What are your thoughts?
