In Part One of this series we looked at the hormones that affect weight loss (or weight gain). In this article we shall look at how you can use your hunger hormones to your advantage. Or in one case, inhibiting them so they don’t interfere with getting rid of those extra pounds.
Hormones play a vital role in weight gain and loss. Some affect appetite, while others affect how readily your body gives up calories stored in fat. While there is no magic pill that can switch these on and off, there are tricks you can use in your diet to switch the right weight loss hormones on – and turn off the hormones that can lead to weight gain.
