How Hormones and Gut Bacteria Cause Weight Gain | Empowering Midlife Wellness Empowering Midlife Wellness with Dr. Susan

    • Health & Fitness

We all know that some people struggle more with weight loss than others, and losing weight is certainly not as easy as just dieting and exercising. Hormones including leptin, ghrelin, glucagon-like peptides and others control our brain's desire to eat or to feel full. And while we may have a genetic predisposition to have certain levels of these hormones, there are things we can do to modify them in a positive way. Other emerging science suggests that the bacterial makeup of our gut can also determine how easily we store fat. Today I’ll be talking about this new understanding of weight management, as well as ways to improve it and reach a healthy weight despite your genetics!
