Control of food intake by energy supply

Toates, F. M. and Booth, D. A. (1974). Control of food intake by energy supply. Nature, 251 pp. 710–711.



A WIDE variety of metabolic influences on appetite have been proposed, including glucose utilisation rate1, influences from adipose tissue2,3 or plasma amino acid pattern4,5 and the heat increment during absorption of a meal6. It is difficult to relate short term effects of the metabolism of absorbed nutrients which indeed occur7, to the long term precision with which energy exchange is often regulated.
