A profile based on a hypothesis by E Abravanel, MD, that each person has a dominant endocrine organ, and each type of person craves and overeats certain foods in an effort to stimulate that organ. Pituitary types are said to crave dairy products, which are believed to stimulate the pituitary gland. They have a large head, child-like face and fat distributed over the entire body; pituitary types are advised to consume more meat, which stimulates health and prolongs life.
