Many people who have struggled to lose weight and keep it off suspect there's more to it than simply eating less, and resist the notion that failure is simply a matter of not trying hard enough. The fact that two-thirds of adults in the United States are overweight or obese suggest it's a more complex situation. One component of the complexity is the influence of appetite hormones. During the past few decades, researchers have identified numerous hormones that play a role in overall appetite control
Join Dr. Ritamarie and Mike Mutzel as they discuss how brain and gut hormones impact eating behavior and weight loss efforts.
