Reset your hormones
Did you know your stomach ‘talks’ to your brain to let you know when you’re full? One way is via the appetite-regulating hormone leptin. Being overweight or obese, however, can make you leptin-resistant. This means that those appetite-suppressing signals don’t make it through to the brain, so that you feel hungry even if you’re full. Fortunately, changing your diet can influence your leptin levels. In fact, studies have shown that healthier diets help to ensure your leptin levels work for you rather than against you.
HFG TIP! Plan all of your meals and snacks to include a variety of foods from the five core food groups — fruit, veg, grains, lean meat and dairy.
