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

What can help overeating? A surprising connection

An addiction to food is real and strong

What can help overeating? The answer has been very clear on this site that only a diet created for overeaters will work and this is why we have helped so many people stop addictions to sugar,carbs,fats, and just about all other foods. In this post we will look at more compelling research from scientists who show clearly what can help stop overeating.

 

The lack of control over how much you eat can be a life long struggle, it is becoming clearer today that many people suffer from food addictions, brain imaging has shown us that food addictions are 100 percent real and must be addressed. The abuse of any food is not healthy but sugar, artificial sweeteners,carbs,junk food are strongly additive, it can take control of your life. What you don’t want is to become a slave to the “Don’t”, the don’t are when you “force yourself” not to eat something, this is will power and it will fail. What can help overeating? First understand that an addiction to food is real and it is based on brain chemistry, never blame yourself, an addiction to food is no different than any other addiction.

 

 

An addiction is an addiction

 

Researchers in England showed us some fascinating research on food addictions and how we can learn from people with alcohol addiction, Sally Marlow is an alcohol addiction researcher at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London and her work with food addiction shows us that there is a common link with all addictions.

 

She stated “As an alcoholic I would go to different areas to buy my alcohol so people wouldn’t recognize me, but I’d also go to different newsagents to buy chocolate so they wouldn’t recognize me.

 

“Sneaking it into the house, not wanting people to see, hiding food, like an alcoholic hiding bottles, hiding empties.” The connection is that an addiction is an addiction.

What can help overeating? The problem is both emotional and physical, this issue is addressed in the Food Addiction Diet report. When you learn that overeating is not your fault but it is caused by emotional and physical factors you are on the right track, only a diet that addresses all these factors can stop the problem, this solution has worked in thousands worldwide

To stop overeating takes more than will power

Why you cannot stop overeating

Why you cannot stop overeating

Science and brain scans have shown us that to stop overeating takes much more than willpower, in fact willpower will probably cause you to eat more food says researchers. The dieting cycle is something that so many millions are caught up in and studies show that most of us will fail. There is a little lose of weight (mainly water weight) when we start a diet but this does not last. To stop overeating researchers now show takes more than simply trying to eat less, the brain does not give up that easily.

 

Why you overeat

 

The reason we overeat has to do with a delicate balance of hormones, ghrelin ,insulin and leptin all play a role in how much that we eat, these hormones are often out of quack when we are dieting, the more severe the diet the more the hormones go out of quack, this also can lead to very strong hunger pain signals from the brain. To stop overeating is not conquered by will power because the brain chemicals are powerful and tell us to eat. There are many factors that cause the hunger hormones to keep firing but stress is a major culprit

 

The pleasure response

 

Doctor Pittman of University of Calgary’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute showed that stress causes a mix of hormones that cause you to eat even when not hungry but when we try willpower to curb food things go horrible wrong.

 

For example, if we elect to pass over a meal, the brain appears to simply increase the drive in pathways leading to increased appetite,” said Dr. Pittman

 

Furthermore, the fact that the lack of food causes activation of the stress response might help explain the relationship between stress and obesity.” To stop overeating only a diet created for overeating will work.

 

Stop blaming yourself for lack of appetite control, this site is the number one site for weight loss and overeating in the world because our food addiction diet that is used in 10 countries was created to stop overeating without causing a brain stress response

I Hate my Body: 7 year old’s and the media

I hate my body is a common complaint from women but what is more scary is that there are girls as young as 7 are expression growing dissatisfaction with their bodies. What this tells us is that the media has a growing influence on female body image. As the obesity crisis continues it is causing more depression among women trying to meet a certain body image. “I hate my body” can mean a future eating disorder is near.

Girls and how they few their bodies

 

A Swedish study by Birgitta Edlund, Klara Halvarsson, Per-Olow Sjödén found that girls as young as 7 were dieting and were extremely concerned with body image. Although these girls were found to be average weight almost 30% of them were “dieting to lose weight” Being healthy is fine but when 7 year old’s are already getting a distorted image of themselves we have a problem. Many of these little girls are on the road to overeating, the stress from trying to maintain an unrealistic body image leads to brain changes that create overeating. “I hate my body” is becoming a common response when women are asked to describe their bodies.

 

Fat ?

 

A Study conducted amongst teen boys age 15-18 in 2008 found that Marilyn Monroe was described as “Fat” by the boys. The picture in the study was every teens boy’s dream in the 1950’s but was not acceptable today. When asked why they thought she was fat most compared her to waif like models of today. Unrealistic body images create food addictions, emotional stresses cause overeating and when women cannot meet the image that is being pumped in their heads from media on a daily, overeating can occur.

 

I hate my body

 

Men contribute to low self esteem in women by reinforcing the preference of the childlike girl over the grown woman. Increasingly men are being influenced to prefer the thin teen body over the grown woman. It is important for women to understand that most overeating is caused by emotional stress which are not controlled by will power.

3 reasons Why “I Can’t control my appetite”

How emotional stress causes overeating

How emotional stress causes overeating

There are millions who live each day saying  “I can’t control my appetite”, they have a hard time getting under control how much they eat no matter how hard they try. Science has revealed some very interesting information that reveals what may have set a person up for a problem with the food relationship. There are factors that may have been beyond your control that caused the brain to change. If you are saying “I can’t control my appetite” science researchers have pinpointed at least 3 things that may have disrupted your brain

 

1. Bullying: Were you bullied in school or by others(included family) when you were a child? Bullying has a deep emotional effect on the hippocampus portion of the brain. This is the same part of the brain that effects appetite and satiety from eating, this is deeply revealing, we have seen so many who were never the same after bullying. In fact, binge eating, overeating, food addictions and bulimia are all related to brain changes from emotional stress. Those who admit “I can’t control my appetite” are closer on the road to healing.

 

 

 

2. Child abuse: The abuses on a child whether physical,sexual or verbal leave scars that go well beyond the abuses. Studies in Europe(Berlin) show that over-eaters were more than 300% more likely to have been victims of a traumatic childhood. The effects of hurting a child continue well into adulthood. Adults must understand the deep damage that they do to a young person when they abuse the child. A child id defenseless and usually turns on themselves by overeating or harming themselves.

 

3. Divorce or Bad relationship: Living in a bad relationship as an adult causes deep emotional damages that can effect appetite. The links between emotional stress and appetite are well founded by researchers. The University of California showed the link

UCSF Health Psychology Program “Increases in negative mood in response to the stressors were also significantly related to greater food consumption. These results suggest that psychophysiological response to stress may influence subsequent eating behavior. Over time, these alterations could impact both weight and health”

 

As we can see “I can’t control my appetite” has much more to do with emotional factors than it has to do with will power. The brain in very fragile and many things can set you up for a food addiction or a problem controlling the appetite. This is why a typical diet does not work for a person with a problem overeating.   Click here Brain and Diet

 

Why a typical diet cannot stop a food addiction

How the Brain causes your appetite to stop or increase

A typical diet will not stop a food addiction, this has been proven by brain and science researchers. The dilemma that faces so many people who have a hard time controlling the appetite is what should I eat. This can be a daily battle that can include various low calorie foods to not eating at all, it all been very frustrating. It must be stated that to stop a food addiction a typical diet will not work

 

 

Food addicted and the failed diet

 

The reason so many people fail at dieting is due to the fact that they have not factored in brain research revealing how appetite control works. Thankfully the use of brain imaging has helped us better understand the condition of uncontrolled appetite. A person who needs constant snacks or who eats more than necessary has areas of the brain that should be controlling appetite but it is not going so well. This is the main reason that dieting fails, dieting cannot work when the brain section that controls appetite is effected negatively. It is clear from brain imagining that a typical diet will not stop food addiction nor will it help control appetite.

 

 

Due to these new finding it is clear that will power is a failed approach to controlling the appetite. The failed will power approach is based on the misconception that you can convince yourself to eat less by just trying hard enough. Those who have tried this approach and failed have been considered weak, often they were told that they did not have any self control. What a horrible way to look at the situation. We can see that when the appetite section of the brain is effected negatively that will power will not work. Food can be just as addictive as any drugs, until the appetite section of the brain is corrected.

 

There is only on diet in the world that has been proven to correct the appetite control center and address the emotional aspects of the condition. See here Diet for Food addiction

 

Diet for Food addiction

Diet for food addiction

Diet for food addiction

We have been asked by our many readers for a very specific diet for food addiction and after 3 years in development our Swiss researchers, the only diet created to stop food addiction has been created Those who are food addicted do not have the same needs as person who is simply trying to lose weight. A diet for food addiction must address the very root causes of the overeating and that is what we have done with the help of dozens of European health researchers.

This site has emphasized the emotional issues surrounding food and we have helped repair the relationship problem that people have with food. Overeating is really a problematic relationship with the food you are eating, the loss of appetite control stems from emotional issues and this calls for a very specific dieting plan. The “Friends Again” report helped a person identity the underlying emotional issues causing the overeating. Many of our readers have asked us as far back as 3 years ago for a diet for food addiction, we have been working diligently on this for the past number of years and it is now completed

The difference

This is the only diet in the world created by scientists to help a person who is addicted to food, there is no other diet in the world that will address overeating from the perspective of the person who overeat. This is a very specialized over-eaters diet that is based on the latest brain imaging research into the addictive behavior. This diet plan has been added to the  “Friend Again” report to give the reader 2 reports, one that heals and identifies the emotional aspect, plus a diet specifically designed for over-eaters. The “Diet for food addiction” report has been released, please follow this site and learn how to repair the relationship with food. Be Well

* The diet for Food addiction has been included in the “Friends Again report” which is now  known as the “Food Addiction Diet*
