so if you’re trying to lose as much fat
as possible right you’re trying to get nice and lean and ripped obviously a lot
of it comes talent to eating less food and exercising more it all comes down to
energy balance we know this but it usually doesn’t do any good to say to
someone just eat less and exercise more right because there are certain
physiological processes that are happening there are certain hormones
involved in appetite regulation which are important to understand in order to
probably approach fat loss in the right way right there are certain things you
can eat which are going to reduce your appetite and that’s important to
understand so I’ve talked about a hormone called leptin before and leptin
resistance and and I explained why that may be one of the multitude of reasons
why overweight people find it quite difficult to lose weight and that’s
known as the satiating hormone but in today’s video I want to talk about it’s
sort of friend which is ghrelin known as the hunger hormone so ghrelin is a
hormone which when increased we become more hungry right and naturally
increases around the time that we usually eat our meals breakfast lunch
and dinner for example or one big dinner if you’re on this channel um and when it
decreases obviously your appetite decreases so if you’re trying to lose
weight and you struggle with your appetite and you have a ridiculously
high appetite there are a number of things you can do for that but one thing
you can focus on is being able to decrease ghrelin in order to take that
appetite down and therefore have you stay in a caloric deficit for a longer
period of time and lose weight so let’s get into more about what ghrelin exactly
is and in certain ways we can manipulate it in our favor so ghrelin is a hormone
but it’s produced in the gut and it communicates with the brain just like
leptin right and it communicates with the brain and it lets the brain know
when you’re hungry ghrelin helps you take in more calories
and it also plays a role in storing fat so ghrelin is also involved in sort of
your circadian rhythm your sleep and wake cycle it plays a role in
carbohydrate metabolism so when it’s released just like leptin it
communicates with the hypothalamus and the brain when your stomach is empty for
example let’s say you try intamin fasting and you you don’t eat breakfast
as usual your your your gut is going to start
producing more grill and signal to the hypothalamus that you need to seek out
more energy and maybe easy to look at grilling and be like screw this hormone
this is awful it’s it’s that’s one of the reasons why I can’t stop eating but
I mean today we have all these fast-food places in delivery in the past the
ghrelin is one of the drivers which helps us get food and survive and
progressively pass on our genes to successive generations so it’s not a bad
thing in itself it’s the environment we have today which makes it sort of bad
you could say but for somebody who’s underweight and desperately needs to
gain weight in order to be within a normal body mass index range for example
and be healthy and strong is is going to need ways to be able to increase ghrelin
proactively so there are certain things you can do and eat in order to decrease
your ghrelin levels for example sleeping if you’re not sleeping properly you
won’t have elevated ghrelin level that’s gonna make you more hungry additionally
if you’re sleep-deprived then you’re going to be in a stressed State you’re
gonna have elevated cortisol which is tightly being linked into mindless
eating so sleep is just a recipe for disaster if your goal is weight loss and
you’re already struggling with appetite regulation so sleeping it off is vital
um understanding that protein out of all the macronutrients is really really
beneficial for weight loss because it’s it’s very satiating but it increases
ghrelin quite significantly and compared to carbs and fat it also increases
peptide why why have tyrosine tyrosine which when increased helps to decrease
the appetite so protein is very satiating and it’s beneficial to combine
perhaps with some fibrous vegetables which is also very satiating and
expensive in the stomach and together vegetables with protein is going to be
really really good for weight loss hence why low-carb diets tend to be pretty
damn effective for weight loss so what’s the main conclusion him sleeping off you
know try to lose weight but don’t go in a huge caloric deficit in an effort to
lose way more weight because that’s just gonna screw you over if you do that for
more than a few weeks making sure to be managing your cortisol levels right
eating enough protein or extra protein if you’re really struggling with your
appetite so thanks for watching and I’ll see you guys in the next video leave a
