The regions of the brain involved with taste, reward and motivation were mild in reaction. But, the areas that were responsible for self-control were boosted and showed heightened activity. This means that the body works itself past those initial shock of being in a different condition and creates reactions to get it back to what it felt as normal and that was you being overweight and gorging on food.
