Dieters Fail Because Of Hormones Not Lack Of Will Power


And those who succeed must have no hormones.
New research the New England Journal of Medicine, suggests that people fail to lose weight on diets, more because of hormone imbalances than lack of will power.

The crux of the problem is that as a person loses weight, especially in more aggressive dieting, the body changes the hormones its producing, adjusting for the loss in fat reserves, and promoting a stronger urge to eat more and replace the reserves.

The author of the study Joseph Proietto of the University of Melbourne in Australia, said in an email :

"People who regain weight should not be harsh on themselves, as eating is our most basic instinct."
Excusinators working overtime.
