Carbohydrate craving. Relationship between carbohydrate intake and disorders of mood

, : Carbohydrate craving. Relationship between carbohydrate intake and disorders of mood. Drugs 39 Suppl 3: 49-52

Common to repetitive episodes of weight gain or failures to succeed on weight loss regimens is the excessive consumption of carbohydrate-rich foods in association with dysphoria. The brain neurotransmitter, serotonin, seems to be involved in the abnormal regulation of mood and food intake that underlies diet failures or weight gain in individuals who suffer from carbohydrate craving obesity, premenstrual syndrome and seasonal affective disorders.
