"One thing I do know is that we cannot control behavior. We never have, and we never will," notes Robert Lustig, MD, pediatric endocrinoligist from the University of California, San Francisco in the 7-part video series called “The Skinny on Obesity” (Episode 7).
Behavior is controlled by biochemistry
Every behavior, including eating, is driven by biochemical forces
“There is physiology, there is biochemistry underlying every single behavior.
“The question is, how long do you think you can exert a cognitive inhibition on a biochemical drive inhibition that’s going [on all the time]?
“The bottom line is we can’t control it; we never could.”
