Chronic Weight Gain and Obesity are Hormone Issues
Do you ever wonder why some people can eat whatever they want and not gain fat? Or the inverse: there are those who barely eat yet have the most difficult time losing fat.
This is because what we eat isn’t the sole determinant of our weight. Our bodies contain multiple, overlappping systems that control or regulate our weight.
Body weight and body fat, in fact, are regulated by our hormones. Chronic weight gain and obesity is not simply a result of the lack of willpower or character flaw. It is ultimately a complex, hormonal disease, and there are many hormones involved in the dynamics of weight gain and obesity.
