I am Dieting but so hungry: What to do about this

How to stop the pain

How to stop the pain

“Dieting but so hungry” is a situation that many find themselves in and there is a scientific explanation as to why you have this problem. Once you get familiar with how hunger works you will be well on your way to reversing this problem. The area of the brain that controls appetite (hypothalamus and the hippocampus )are involved in hunger. If you are dieting but still so hungry (or just starting a new diet) this article will try to help you understand the process.

 

There are brain neurons that are involved with appetite, there are also hormones like insulin and leptin which can help you control hunger, when the body is operating perfectly(rarely) we have no trouble controlling our appetite but this is not the case when on a diet. When you diet there is a complex system of hormones and brain neurons that all interact and the bottom line is you stay famished. Diets do not work in over 80% of people because they are based on the false premise of “just lowering carbs, calories or sugar”, this will eventually lead to the “dieting but so hungry” feeling that we all get.

 

When you can diet and still keep your hormones balanced you do not get hunger pains This is why the a diet in Europe works for so many, it was created for diabetics but it is now the number one European diet for people without diabetes

The pain and irritation of dieting

 

‘If you diet and lose fat, your leptin levels drop and that is like switching on an alarm in the brain,’ says Professor O’Rahilly professor of clinical biochemistry and medicine at Cambridge University

‘The brain then makes you feel hungry, signaling that you must find food and consume calories immediately”

 

The pain and irritation starts in your brain not in your stomach, that hunger feeling is caused by the brain triggering the release of a hormone called ghrelin, as we can see there is a complex working of hormones and brain chemistry when trying to stop a food addiction or simply trying to diet. Diets cause hormones to go crazy and this is why so many people fail, this is why will power is also a completely failure. You may stop eating for a while but the diet will eventually fail.

What to do about Antidepressant weight gain

The link between Depression Drugs and Weight gain

The link between Depression Drugs and Weight gain

Those who suffer from Depression are usually prescribed anti depressants, weight gain is one of the unfortunate side effects of taking medication for a depressed mental condition. The numbers of people in the United States on medications for depression are over 30 million, one of the major set backs from taking these pills is weight gain, anti depressants are known to cause a tremendous amount of increased body weight.

Sarah was prescribed the anti depressant Zoloft and gained over 30 pounds in less than one year, the majority of drugs for depression are called serotonin up lifters. These drugs are necessary for people who live with depression. The drugs can be the difference between functioning on a daily basis or not, there are many who cannot get through the day without these pills. Clinical depression is a very serious illness, many are not able to work or do very ordinary tasks. The question is what to do about the weight gain from anti depressants, is there a way to address the illness of depression without the negative effects of the pills? Medications for depression work on the brain and they cause the body to hold fat.

 

A review published in 2003 in the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine stated that while weight gain is a possible side effect with SSRI antidepressant drugs, it may be more likely to occur after six months or more of use

 

There are many theories as to why the pills cause weight gain, this occurs even in those who are not eating more. Science has no direct answer as to why this side effect occurs but one thing is sure and that is it is not good. The use of anti depressants and weight gain is something you should be very concerned about. The Food addiction diet was shown to cause weight loss in people on depression medication

Fat and embarrassed on Facebook? what to do about it

You don't need facebook to communicate with your friends and family

You don’t need facebook to communicate with your friends and family

I am fat and was embarrassed on facebook was the latest email from a girl who suffers from food addiction. There is a bitter sweet combination when someone decides to join a social network, you open yourself up to so many opinions and judgments from others. Creating a profile and uploading your life can be dangerous. Being fat and embarrassed on facebook is a very common thing and we will tell what to do about it

Prejudice against over-eaters

There is a bias against people that overeat, they are often ridiculed and made the sport of many people’s jokes. In media and television it is common to make fun of the people who are overweight, we see it every day on TV. This site was created to teach people that being overweight is not your fault. Almost all overeating comes from emotional stresses like bad parents, divorce, sexual abuses, physical abuses and more. These are the horrific events that start overeating additions in the brain. This site is not on facebook because we simply do not believe in it. Being fat and embarrassed on face-book’s website is a common occurrence for uncountable thousands. We live in a world that is sadly very superficial, meaning we judge others by how they look not for who they are. This will not change it is a sad part of the human condition.

Please like and follow me

The need to be liked is very human and that is because we are social creatures, but the need to be liked for how we look is what most people really want to achieve, the media has created this monster.

Six pack abs, puffy lips, bedroom eyes, no fat on the body, teeth whiter than normal..etc.

This is what we are fed by the media each day and it works. They make millions and you get embarrassed for not living up to a fake image. So with facebook looking fat can be a problem yet people want to be liked on their website. Many are bullied on the social website by rumors and false stories and some cannot get pass the fact that they were teased or destroyed by what others posted. This food addiction site would love to see everyone close their Facebook account but it is not that easy, most will not leave their site.

We own you

There is a bigger problem though, face-book’s site does not allow you to close your account, you can park it but they own all you have written and posted for life. Like a bad virus your account cannot be deleted.

Fat and embarrassed? I would recommend you leave that site without a second thought.

What do you mean your not on face-book?  This is the question we get everyday and we let people know after their shock subsides that we are not followers of what everyone else does. The  need to communicate is simple let your friends text you or make a simple telephone call.  Let them know you are not on Facebook, they will get over the shock and give you a call

There are literally millions in the world who are clinical depressed and they often take anti depression medications to treat the problem. With Depression or stress often comes food addiction, this is because of brain chemicals.

 

Science has shown that the brain of a depressed person (from early childhood) is wired differently.

 

New research identifies the brain chemicals and circuits involved in illnesses like depression and anxiety, giving potential new directions to their treatment. In addition, research with children shows that early-life depression and anxiety changes the structure of the developing brain

 

These are the same changes that are seen in people with food addictions. Depression and Food addiction are linked in many ways.
