How to reset your hunger hormone to reduce weight
Have you ever wondered why it is so easy to gain weight but it is hard to lose it? Why, no matter how many times you tell yourself, you can't get your bedtime snacks, anyway, you have to do so.
Well, the answer lies in your hormones - in fact, a hormone.
The name of hormone is leptin. And, if you haven't heard of it before, it's hormones, which send out signals to your brain to stop eating and increase the number of calories you burn... these two good things, right?
Problems arise when you are resistant to leptin.
When this happens, it's not just willpower that prevents you from gaining weight (or getting it off).
In fact, if your weight is struggling, leptin resistance is likely to be the culprit behind all your troubles.
What causes leptin resistance?
Leptin resistance may be caused by many factors (almost all factors are very common in our country).
1 - obesity
Another area of health damage that is overweight is your sensitivity to leptin. In fact, science has shown that although obese people actually have more leptin circulating in their bodies, it does not cross into their cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), so it cannot instruct the brain to stop eating.
2 - high fat diet
Health researchers at the University of California, San Diego, have recently found that when mice are fed a high-fat diet, they produce an enzyme called MMP-2, which cuts hormone leptin receptors from brain cells.
3 - high triglyceride
Triglycerides are one of the things that health doctors do when they do blood tests for your cholesterol. They are fats that can be found in your blood. If you have too much fat, it can make you suffer from heart disease and stroke. And they are also proven to prevent leptin from entering your brain.
4 - sugar is too much.
Another mechanism of leptin resistance is excessive intake of carbohydrate, especially high fructose corn syrup. Moreover, if you combine a high-sugar diet with the high-fat diet we mentioned above, your leptin has no chance.
5 - pressure
If all of these do not get you, the pressure will be. This is because stress in your daily life is a reliable cause of leptin resistance in obesity.
Overcome leptin resistance
The good news is that you can reset sensitivity to leptin and overcome leptin resistance.
How is this done?
1. - Watch your diet.
Avoid high-sugar, high-fat foods that cause leptin resistance and processed foods that contain chemicals that may negatively affect your satiety. It's all about high fiber, high protein foods and healthy fats.
It's also important to reduce the amount of carbohydrates you eat (especially refined carbohydrates), because changing it can help reduce triglyceride levels caused by leptin resistance.
No. 2 - Exercise
Regular physical exercise helps to reduce leptin resistance and help lose weight to get healthy.
No. 3 - adequate rest
Lack of sleep or poor quality of sleep may increase your leptin problem, so be sure to get a lot of good things. Use a set healthy sleep schedule to eliminate all sources of brainstorming (especially blue light) in the bedroom and take time to nap.
4 - let yourself cheat.
A weekly cheating day (you can eat whatever you like) may also be beneficial because it can trick your brain into producing more leptin. So, go to that pizza or vanilla milkshake - but only one day a week.
Keep in mind that leptin resistance has become one of the major causes of weight gain today among diet, stress and other factors. Use the above tips to beat this hormone resistance, drive your weight problem, burn more calories, feel full as soon as possible, and restore the healthy shape you want.
