Burgers make you hungry, new research finds

A BIG hamburger on the way home from the pub on Friday night can still be making you hungry at work on Monday.
Researchers have found burgers, ice cream and chocolate don't go straight to your hips but straight to your head.
The unhealthy fats make their way to the brain, where they switch off the system that tells us we've had enough to eat and how hungry we are.
The fat makes the brain switch off the appetite-regulating hormones leptin and insulin.
US researchers believe the effect is so powerful a cheeseburger eaten on a Friday could make you hungry three days later.
The research, published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, said palmitic fat, found in butter, cheese, milk and beef, was the best at tricking the brain.
