What makes you hungry? Actually it's rather complicated. Did you know that people who have had their stomachs removed still experience hunger pains? That's because hunger doesn't mainly come from your stomach, your brain regulates your appetite. And as most of those on the Slimxpress™ diet know the part of your brain that controls your appetite is called the hypothalamus.
What causes a hunger pain?
Your brain constantly monitors your blood. There are a variety of chemical signals that turns hunger on and off. Essentially, the hypothalamus detects the amount of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids in your blood to determine if you should eat more or stop eating.
When the level of glucose in your blood drops the hypothalamus detects this and signals (in a form of a hunger pain) to you to eat. When you start to have a hunger pain the body starts shutting down your metabolism and other mechanisms to protect you from losing weight. In other words when you are having hunger pains you are no longer losing weight.
By keeping your blood glucose levels steady throughout the day this may help you:
1. avoid hunger pains
2. keep you from over eating thus putting on weight
3. keep your metabolism going so you don’t stop losing weight.
You can help keep blood glucose levels steady by eating frequent small meals like Slimxpress™ shakes, bars throughout the day. These products have been specifically designed with the right amount nutrients to support the balancing of blood sugar levels
