Hunger Pains

Men's Health |

Beware a spinal trap: new research from Yale School of Medicine suggests that an achy back may make you overeat. In the study, people with chronic lower-back pain enjoyed pudding less than pain-free people did. The researchers also found that no link existed between how much the back-pain sufferers liked the food and the quantity they ate. This 
disconnect may occur because 
brain circuits that process pain overlap with those that register food’s appeal, says study author Dr Paul Geha. The effect is stronger with fatty foods, so keep less of them around.

You can Beat Back Pain With Yoga or you could Prick It Away too keep yourself clear of those fatty foods.
