Conniving ice cream

A new study shows some fats sabotage our brains and make us eat more, according to the LA Times.

Palmitic acid -- a saturated fat found in butter, cheese, ice cream, milk and beef – is one of the wiliest fats to do this. It tricks the body into ignoring hormones (leptin and insulin) that normally tell us when we’re full, so we keep eating. And the effects could last for up to 3 days. So indulging in some ice cream one day could cause you to overeat for several days.

They're totally plotting to make you fat. You can see it in their eyes.

“Our findings suggest that when you eat something high in fat, your brain gets 'hit' with the fatty acids, and you become resistant to insulin and leptin. Since you're not being told by the brain to stop eating, you overeat,” said Dr. Deborah Clegg, lead author of the study, which is published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
Yea. I don't think this will stop me from enjoying my oreo cookie ice cream, but maybe I'll be more aware about the sneak attack that's going on inside there.
What do you think? Have you noticed this happening to you at all?
