Rats and Oreos

From Show Me The Data:

They found that when female rats were cycled through at least three restrictive eating/refeeding cycles, then exposed to stress, a tiny bit of Oreo cookie made the rats binge on their chow. Rats who were only restricted but not stressed, or stressed but not restricted, didn’t have this response… Since most people are likely to be exposed to Oreos and stress, this research cautions us against trying address the “problem of increasing weight” with the pursuit of weight loss, since dieting itself may be one of the big causes of increasing BMI.
