Getting rid of fat, part 12. My free belly fat book talks about your master fat hormone, what it is, how it drives all fat loss, and how to make it work better for you.
Hi, Dr. Dennis Clark here. I want to talk to you a little bit more about the hormone balance that is important for getting rid of belly fat. There is a hormone that is called the master fat hormone. The name of this hormone is leptin. Leptin is produced in your fat cells and is transported to the hypothalamus of your brain, where it supposed to carry a signal as to how much fat you have. Unfortunately, if you get so fat from eating so much that the signal is overdone, your hypothalamus turns off. It’s like it doesn’t hear the signal whatsoever. You become resistant to leptin. When you become resistant to leptin, your internal signaling system for storing fat is so out of whack that you will put on fat even though you already have too much. It’s really crucial to do what you have to do to balance the hormone leptin so the master fat hormone can do its work so you can metabolize your fat and be slim and trip like you are supposed to. I talk about this in more detail. There are lots of things that you can do in your lifestyle and in your diet to make your leptin not work for you. Therefore, you have to undo those things or do other things to get the leptin to work for you the way it is supposed to. This brief video just gives you an idea of the importance of leptin as the master fat hormone. Get an idea of what you can do about it, what you do to get it to work right, or what you do that makes you fat if it’s not working right, then take a look at the details in my free belly fat book, which you can download now at BellyFatScience.com.
All the best with getting rid of fat,
