How to control your appetite

Why we cannot control our appetite. Science says It is our hormones!

Why we cannot control our appetite. Science says It is our hormones!

How to control your appetite is based on “hormones”, for many people the foods that they are eating can also cause them to develop a problem controlling food portions. Food addiction is a real condition that effects millions of people, the consequences can lead to obesity, diabetes or other health complications. Medical science is starting to understanding food addictions in ways that were not previously known just 10 years ago. If you are wondering how to control your appetite, the most important thing to understand is that hormones are powerful and they are responsible for how much you eat.

 

Food portions controlled by various hormones

 

There are various hormones such as leptin, Insulin and cortisol which controls how much you eat, many things can affect this mechanism and cause you to eat more food than you really want to eat. Stress and emotions play a crucial role in how these hormones work and ultimately how much you eat, the delicate balance of hormones work with the brain in signaling when you “feel full”

 

Hormone study

 

Most people are unaware that Insulin is the number one hormone for weight and appetite control, this is why the Spirit Happy Diet was shown to cause rapid weight loss in people with or weight diabetes. See here Spirit Happy Diet

 

Insulin dampens appetite by inhibiting NPY/AgRP-secreting neurons and by activating POMC-releasing neurons. Insulin appears to have both short-term and long-term actions and is essential in regulation of body weight. Resistance to insulin is very often associated with obesity and the loss of insulin’s regulation of metabolism as seen in diabetes type 2.

 

 

Working with these hormones is how to control the appetite, as we can see appetite is largely controlled by hormones which determine how much we will want to eat. There are people who simply keep eating because this releases “feel good hormones” that improve the mood. Will power does not work to halt a food addiction. Those who are under stress may “trigger” hormones that will cause you want to eat even if you are not particularly hungry. In addition, those who have suffered from childhood abuses(stresses) often develop eating disorders. Food addictions are greatly related to present and prior stresses.

 

Only a diet at was created by brain researchers based on how hormones work can stop the “out of control eating” This worked in 10 countries See here How to control your appetite

I am an Emotional Eater, What can Help?

The brain is too strong to stop emotional eating with will power says Doctors

The brain is too strong to stop emotional eating with will power says Doctors

I am an emotional eater, what can help? This was the latest email that we received Friday from a woman in her late 30’s. It is very important to understand that the brain is very much involved in every aspect of our eating habits, in fact, the root cause of all overeating stems from changes in the brain related to stresses. This is where we get the term emotional eater, the fact of the matter is that stresses effect our emotions and this is where the brain tries to help by seeking food.

 

Overweight, sad, stress, food

 

Biologically the brain can help you when your mood is down, very stressful events such as arguments,worries or even a frustrating relationship causes brain changes which signal the need to relieve the stresses. Emotions are powerful and can lead to a very unhealthy cycle of stress related overeating, this can cause obesity and other health complications. The brain chooses food as the method of relief. The stomach may influence the brain by releasing hormones, says Lukas Van Oudenhove, M.D one of the study authors and a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Leuven, in Belgium. If you are an emotional eater it is important to know that this is your body’s attempt to help lift your mood but it is not a healthy solution and needs to be addressed.

 

The failure of willpower

 

The study in Belgium showed just how powerful the effects of food was on the mood, the in take of chocolate or fatty foods had an almost drug like effect in addressing the emotions, will power is not strong enough to fight this effect. Do not blame yourself for emotion type eating, will power cannot stop this. What was even more amazing from the European study was the fact that sadness from just a picture ( such as a disaster or crying people) caused the brain to response by calming the sadness after ingesting fatty food. We can clearly see that stresses from jobs,divorces, or loss of life can cause uncontrollable eating in an emotional eater. The Food Addiction diet is the number one diet used over 10 countries, it was created by brain researchers to stop all overeating.

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

Why am i not losing weight: There are 2 reasons

Why am i not losing weight? Diet or Emotions

 

If you are one of the millions wondering “Why am I not losing weight?” The problem must be address from two different angles. We will touch more on this later in this post. In the United States and much of Europe there is a growing problem of obesity. Many are trying but failing. Unfortunately, for the majority “Why am I not losing weight?” is what they end up saying.

 

We have worked with thousands of people who could not lose the weight and the “cause” revolves around two things. One is diet and the other is emotional issues that cause overeating. There are many dieting when it is in fact other emotional issues that are contributing to a food addiction. This is also why may people fail at dieting. The problem may not be dieting at all. If you have unresolved emotional issues dieting will not work. Why I am not losing weight may have more to do with past or present emotional stresses than with dieting.

 

Those who suffer from depression or those in unsupportive relationship often have a problem with overeating. Becky at 25 was in an abusive relationship and this lead to her overeating. No diet could help her. And we have spoke before about Diana 39 whose mother caused much of her problems with food as well as her dating life.  If you are asking “why am I not losing weight” think twice. Don’t assume a diet is the answer to the problem. If it is truly is a dieting problems we recommend the European weight loss diet because it heals the body. See here spirit happy cure

 

BUT…

 

If you truly have emotional issues related to overeating then no diet will help. We have found that you can stop food addiction when the true emotional causes are addressed See here help food addiction
