Take Control of Your Hunger Hormones to Lose Weight Fast
By Scott Isaacs, MD, FACP, FACE
Hunger is is a biological force that drives us to eat. Trying to control your hunger can be a lot like trying to control your breathing. Yes, you can slow your breathing for a while, but eventually, your biological drive to breathe will take over. Hunger is the same way. You can reduce the amount you eat and even lose some weight, but eventually your biological drive will win out forcing your body to stop losing weight and eventually gain it all back. Willpower will never win out over biology. On top of biological hunger, we eat for pleasure and due to boredom and stress. We crave certain foods because of reasons we don’t always understand, we eat more food than our body needs and gain weight. In the background, environmental endocrine disruptors, chemicals that alter hormones are slowing metabolism and driving up appetite and cravings even more.
Nearly 75 percent of the people in this country are overweight or obese. In his new, empowering book, leading national weight loss expert and endocrinologist Dr. Scott Isaacs explores the factors that trigger hunger hormones and offers simple, achievable methods for losing pounds for good.
Drawing on years of experience treating overweight men and women and high-level scientific research on the connections between hormones and obesity, Dr. Isaacs explains how easy it is to gain excess weight in modern life. Hunger hormones like leptin, ghrelin and many others, only identified by scientists in recent years, also our brain’s ability to regulate how much we eat.
You will learn how to eat in a way to outsmart your hunger hormones to help you lose weight. Dr. Isaacs explores different types of foods and how they can help you control your hunger, satiety, cravings, boost metabolism, increase energy levels and improve health.
Dr. Isaacs also explores how health conditions like inflammation, leptin or insulin resistance can hinder many people from losing weight, and how you can overcome these problems. He offers not only easy, appealing food tips, but detailed plans for getting more weight-burning and muscle-building exercise to make you look and feel better. Dr. Isaacs shows you how to harness the power of your hormones through the right meal plan and the right types of physical activity, so you regain control of your weight and attain a healthy body for the rest of your life.
