Those with healthy weight experienced this 'fatty diet effect' much more than their obese counterparts, resulting in diminished ability to recognize fatty foods.  This may also result in consumption of more such foods to feel satiated. 

Research leader, Russell Keast, from Deakin University said, "The response to fat is important because fat is a very potent initiator of the satiety or fullness mechanisms we get. If you don't have something telling you that you are full or it is time to stop eating, you are going to keep eating more or initiate another eating event sooner."
