Diet Roadblock Explained

As we help women achieve and maintain a healthy BMI, we see too many people in the middle of a successful diet, suddenly struggling to maintain the pace of weight loss. Knowing the cause can help guide us to a solution. Hormones pay a role in the regulation of weight and food consumption. These are hormones that most of us do not discuss with our providers. But understanding these hormones will help explain why so many of us hit a roadblock when tying to lose weight. When you begin a diet you find that you lose weight, but as you go on watching your calories you find that weight loss slows, and in some cases that weight gain resumes. When we eat food, normally when we are not trying to gain or lose weight as we at the leptin hormone from our fat decreases, the ghrelin from the stomach increases, the hormones glucagon-like peptide-1, cholecystokinin, and peptide YY from our intestine, and insulin and amylin from the pancreases all decrease. Those effects help regulate the signal to regulate the food intake and regulate aspects of our metabolism. If we look at those same levels after weight loss as early as 10 weeks into a diet some of these same hormone levels change so their effects are paradoxically changed to produce more hunger and makes you less feeling full after eating. If you were able to keep these hormones elevated you would have more satisfaction from your food, feeling fuller after you eat, less feelings of hunger between meals, and as a result be able to eat less and maintain balanced weight loss. Medications, exercise, CoolSculpting and Slim Shots can all help you be successful. Helping you fight the roadblocks these gut and fat hormones present mid diet as you struggle with weight issues and factors that are beyond your control is how the medication Saxenda works. Perhaps this is one option for you to explore with your gyno.
