This Common Food Additive Now Linked to Weight Gain

Editor's comment: You gain weight because you can't use up the amount of calories you eat. Or you eat more than what you need. In most cases, this happens because the food you eat is too palatable. The palatability of a food can be boosted by a number of factors including salt (savory), umami or savory taste from MSG, fat/oil (mount feel and other flavors) and protein (savory and other tastes). If you want to control your caloric intake, reduce all these factors or whichever you like most. You don't have to use drugs to suppress your appetite. Using low salt food may be the simplest weight loss solution. American foods taste just too good. That is one of the reasons why people tend to eat more than what they need. Eat responsibly because overeating calories can be your biggest enemy for your health.
