HungerOne of the major drives is hunger. Hunger, of course, leads to eating. And eating(i.e., feeding), as you will recall, is one of the “Four Fs” controlled by the hypothalamus. Now, I realize that this might notbe everyone’s first choice, as far as which of the “Four Fs” to cover in detail. But it’s the one I’ve chosen to cover in detail. This discrepancy in “first choice of F” might be because of our difference in ages. By the time you get to be my age, eating just might be your favorite “F.” - It is certainly the “F” I engage in most often. As you may already know, when people get older, they tend to slow down a lot. And sexis certainly one of the areas in which you slow down. - Rodney Dangerfield: “I mean, I get tired now just holding up the magazine.” Hunger, on the other hand, is one drive that stays with people throughout their lifetime. Although you might eat lesseach day than you did when you were younger, eating is still, at least, something you’re going to do everyday. Another reason why we’ll cover this particular “F” (i.e., feeding) is that we’ll get to look at eating disorders like anorexia nervosaand bulimia, and we’ll also take a look at obesity.
