How To Teach Your Hormones To Help You Lose Weight!

Some people believe that obesity is caused by eating too much and exercising too little.

However, experts don't believe this to be the case, at least not in the majority of people.

They said that the increased food intake and decreased exercise, is secondary to changes in the function of hormones.

In other words, we’re not getting fat because we’re eating more, we’re eating more because we’re getting fat.

Recently, science is uncovering several bona fide links between female hormones, hunger, weight loss and fat metabolism.

Below are the hormones responsible in controlling hunger and losing weight:


Most people are familiar with the term "insulin" in relation to diabetes.

Insulin determines whether blood sugar is used for immediate energy or stored as fat.

What you eat and how you eat has a direct influence on your insulin levels.

When you eat too many carbohydrates, so much insulin is produced that the cells cannot absorb it and the liver converts it all to fat.


This is also known as the stress hormones which affects blood sugar, regulates metabolism, and controls salt and water balance.

When you are stressed, cortisol encourages the body to store fat around the vital organs.

This process releases dangerous fatty acids into the blood, which then raise cholesterol and insulin levels.


Leptin is the "hunger hormone" directly related to body fat and obesity.

This hormone is released from fat cells and is so powerful, it can actually have a long-term effect on how much food your body requires to feel satiated.
