Why can’t you stop eating as soon as you eat, maybe it’s leptin resistance? When Friedman discovered it in 1995 and found that it could help with weight loss, Friedman called it Leptin.
Why can’t you stop once you eat?
The culprit is a hormone: leptin.
Leptin is secreted by fat cells: it sends a signal to the brain (the part of the hypothalamus), telling the brain: I have enough energy in my body and don’t need to eat anymore.
Normal people, stop when they are full, high levels of leptin will make the brain insensitive. Omelette says the brain is “too lazy to deal with” leptin. As long as you eat, you can’t stop, you have to eat to support yourself every time.
So what causes leptin resistance?
What can I do to relieve leptin resistance?
Exercise your hunger ability, don’t easily stimulate your appetite, don’t eat less and more meals.
→Eat less foods that increase inflammation
Such as: grains, refined sugar, processed foods, etc…they can not only damage your gut integrity, but also increase your risk of inflammation.
Eat more vegetables, animal protein, and healthy fats.
→Increase Omega-3 fatty acid intake and decrease Omega-6 fatty acid intake
Omega-3 fatty acids relieve and suppress inflammation, and Omega-6 fatty acids promote inflammation.
→Sleep quality is especially important
Research finds that sleep affects the brain’s sensitivity to leptin. So there is a scientific basis to say that the more you sleep, the thinner you become.
High triglycerides prevent leptin from being transported from the blood to the brain. The best way to lower triglycerides is to increase physical activity, fast, and eat a low-carb diet.
→Eat more protein
Enough protein can improve leptin, but don’t eat too much!
Physical activity may help reverse leptin resistance.
Wheat gluten, in particular, blocks leptin receptors and can increase leptin resistance.
In short, the body is like a complete machine, it needs all parts to be well maintained in order to operate at high speed.
