Disturbed eating at high altitude: influence of food preferences, acute mountain sickness and satiation hormones
European Journal of Nutrition, 05/18/2012

This effect was not directly associated with hypoxia or changes in gastrointestinal hormones. Other peripheral and central factors appear to reduce food intake at high altitude.
