12. Yes, it's your hormones. No, it's not your thyroid.

Have you ever wondered if it could be your hormones that are making weight loss so difficult?

Have you ever thought – “It’s got to be my thyroid. I just don’t get it. I’m barely eating anything, I’ve exercising 5 days a week. It just doesn’t make any sense that I’m not losing weight.” (Only to have your doctor tell you your thyroid levels are normal) ?

On today’s podcast, I break down exactly which hormones are involved in weight regulation and appetite within your body, and what that means for your weight loss journey.

Because we all know that “calories in, calories out” isn’t working….

  • We review ghrelin (the hunger hormone), satiety signals like CCK, PYY, GLP1, the energy barometer leptin, and the famous one: insulin.

  • We take a look at the three layers of the human appetite system within the brain and what you can do to override ancient, evolutionary biology that is driving your weight gain

Obesity is a complex chronic medical condition, established by our, and influenced by psychology, our food environment, our behaviours, other medical conditions and medications that one may be taking.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t do something about it.
