Curb Your Cravings and Silence Your Hunger

Written by Dr. Steve Sisskind, MD
Imagine eating a modest meal in the evening, nothing too big, and then NEVER feeling hungry for the rest of the night… and I mean not even giving food a second thought.

That’s how things are supposed to be.
When your “hunger hormones” are working like they should, your brain receives a signal after dinner that you’re “full,” and the hunger pangs turn off and stay off.

The “hunger hormone” is called ghrelin (pronounced: GREL – in). And when levels of this hormone get too high, you feel hungry ALL THE TIME.

But if the ghrelin levels remain low, you will FEEL FULL after a meal… and satisfied without the need or urge to snack continually throughout the day…or night.

You see, when your brain is not being assaulted with the ghrelin hormone, it has the chance to rest and recover. That means it has the freedom to process another hormonal messenger called leptin.

Leptin is your body’s signal to STOP the hunger impulse.

But when ghrelin is too high, the call of leptin goes unheard.

By safely and reliably lowering ghrelin, you make an impact on leptin. That’s how hormones work. It’s a matter of balance and moderation.

Truth be told, you were never designed to be overweight and unhappy.

Nature intended for there to be a natural balance between the hormones that regulate your appetite and your ability to burn fat. It’s the overly-processed foods we eat and the toxins in our environment that throw off our body’s hormones.
