What is understood by endocrinologists is that there is no single hormonal factor in obesity – many of the hormones listed above are inter-linked and influenced not just by what we eat, but also our age, how we are sleeping and our stress levels.
This book really explained the influences – and suggested a multi-pronged attack to tackle weight loss. Remove sugar to alleviate insulin insensitivity and allow your body to hear the hunger & satiety hormones at work & use relaxation techniques & exercise to reduce the stress hormone cortisol which in turn reduces cravings and helps with insulin control. Reverse the vicious cycle and let your body work for you rather than against you. An epiphany!
