An interview with Dr. Richard K. Bernstein is presented. When asked about the craving one has for carbohydrates he elucidates the role of beta cells that not only produce insulin but also a satiety hormone viz amylin which indicates 'fullness' to the central nervous system (CNS). He further explains that one has to lose a lot of beta cells to become even mildly diabetic and that deficiency leads to the craving of carbs.
