It’s a REALLY big topic that can go on for ages…hormones.  I’m not an expert, I just want to share what I have learned over my years of experience in learning a more balanced lifestyle approach to fat loss.

Leptin and Ghrelin are two of the most important aspects in learning if we’re truly hungry or if we are just having a craving.

Leptin is a hormone that acts as a fuel gauge for our day to day hunger…and when this is off, the WHEELS fall off!  You’ve been there…you could just eat and eat and eat for no apparent reason and then feel lethargic, out of whack and just not normal, right?!?

Ghrelin is a more hour to hour gauge. You’ll know when it’s time to eat because you’re hungry and your stomach starts talking to you in growls!

But wait, there’s more!  Testosterone ALSO plays a role in how our bodies react to fat loss.  Keeping this hormone in check will help us to BURN fat rather than STORE it.

*totally check with your medical provider if you have more in depth questions than what’s addressed in this video.  Again, I am NOT a medical professional, and I can’t diagnose any of these issues, I’m just sharing my journey!
