Subjects were recruited from 315 college students and were classified as: Group I, eating breakfast; Group II, skipping breakfast; Group III, not eating fast foods; Group IV, eating fast foods; Group V, not eating processed foods; and Group VI, eating processed foods.

The pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, efficacy, and adverse effects of dexfenfluramine hydrochloride are reviewed. Dexfenfluramine, the dextrorotatory isomer of fenfluramine, is indicated for use in the management of obesity in patients with a body mass index of > or = 30 kg/m2, or > or = 27 kg/m2 in the presence of other risk factors. Unlike fenfluramine, dexfenfluramine is a pure serotonin agonist. Dexfenfluramine may mimic the effect of carbohydrate intake. Systemic bioavailability is about 68%, and the drug is metabolized in the liver...

The relationship of food and eating with affective and other clinical disorders is complex and intriguing. Serotoninergic dysfunction in seasonal affective disorder, atypical depression, premenstrual syndrome, anorexia and bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder is reviewed. Patients exhibiting a relationship between food and behaviour are found in various diagnostic categories. This points to a need to shift from nosological to functional thinking in psychiatry. It also means application of psychopharmacological treatments across diagnostic boundaries...

The present investigation studied the relationship between symptoms of menstrual distress and macronutrient intake, eating behavior, and exercise in healthy women. Twenty-six normally menstruating women with no complaints of menstrual distress completed a disguised questionnaire on menstrual symptoms and monitored the type and amount of food consumed as well as the type and duration of exercise during a full menstrual cycle. Menstrual cycle phases were determined by the presence of menses, ovarian hormonal assays, and basal temperature monitoring...

Hormones are partial determinants of certain sexually dimorphic behaviors and interact with psychosocial, environmental, and other physiologic factors. The part played by sex hormones in the direct control of overt human behavior is, compared with that found in lower animals, slight and less readily definable. In humans, these hormones, although necessary for maintenance of libido and sexual behavior, seem to control the intensity of such behavior rather than its direction. In most women of reproductive age, the different phases of the menstrual cycle are not associated with major physical or psychologic discomfort...
