Abstract

Dietary fat intake is a key factor thought to increase risk for diabetes and heart disease. Per capita fat intake in the Western world has increased in spite of repeated health messages to reduce fat in the diet. Dietary fat can promote consumption for various reasons, including its caloric density, ability to reduce satiety signaling, and rewarding effects in the mouth as well as in the intestinal tract.
