Insulin secretion also serves as an acute response to caloric influx: Increased secretion begins within minutes of initiation of feeding, is maintained for the duration of food intake, and returns to basal secretory rate in the postabsorptive period. If insulin were an appetite stimulant (like ghrelin), its secretion would have preceded, not followed, ingestion of food. The timing and pattern of postprandial insulin secretion suggest a role in the regulation of satiety and meal termination. Indeed, direct administration of insulin to the central nervous system suppresses food intake in rodents (88).

Peripheral and central mechanisms appear to mediate the anorectic/satiety effects of CCK. Peripherally, activation of CCKA receptors on vagal nerve endings and pyloric sphincter reduces food intake (108). Centrally, interactions between CCK and leptin pathways elicit synergistic anorectic effects; an additional mechanism of action of CCK might also involve activation of brain stem neurons that regulate portion size (8, 109). The effect of peripheral administration of CCK usually is transient and more consistent with a modulatory effect on satiety/meal termination rather than primary inhibition of meal initiation (108, 110).
