Summary "Neural and Metabolic Control of Macronutrient Intake systematically discusses the known physiological mechanisms involved in macronutrient selection, including their molecular, genetic, and neurochemical aspects. This book is also a critical review of the hypothesis that ingestion of the three macronutrients (fat, protein, carbohydrates) is regulated by separate neural control mechanisms, leaving open the possibility that strategies could be devised to intervene in bodily control systems and alter the proportion of fat in the diet."--Jacket
