Food restriction-induced hyperactivity: Addiction or adaptation to famine?

Authors: Dulcos, M., Ouerdani, A., Mormède, P., Konsman, J.P.
Rat study. A nifty little study (we are not rats of course) that indicates the exposure to sucrose eases the fleeing-famine-like hyperactivity response [see S. Guisinger articles in references for further details on fleeing famine and AN). Complete supposition, but perhaps the predilection for sweet in early phases of recovery for patients with restrictive eating disorders might be have additional value in easing and lessening the hyperactivity that exacerbates the continual pattern of energy deficits [site owner comment].
