At Emily Deans notes:

Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species are known to produce GABA. Escherichia,Bacillus, and Saccharomyces produce norepinephrine. Candida, Streptococcus,Escherichia, and Enterococcus produce serotonin. Bacillus and Serratia produce dopamine, and Lactobacillus species produce acetylcholine.

So is this why some of use overeat? Is it the product of the bacteria that is the reward for our brains?

So if we stop feeding the bacteria that produce the serotonin and dopamine, will the desire to eat go away?

If I use cold water, does it slow the bacteria growth and reduce the reward? If cold water reduces the reward, it may be the way to wean off the food (eating only specific low reward foods) to a point that the hunger/craving disappears.  

Any views, comments, ideas on the subject?
