There’s a science to weight loss and the struggle to diet
Here is the latest thinking behind the science of weight loss:

  • There’s a genetic component (in other words, there is a “fat gene”)
  • Some people just have more fat cells
  • Your metabolism can change making it harder to lose weight once you gain weight
  • Stress can cause you to crave carb-rich snack foods
  • Not enough sleep (sleep deprivation triggers a decrease in leptin which helps us feel full and an increase in ghrelin which makes us feel hungry)
  • Your spouse’s weight matters (if one spouse is obese, the other is 37% likely to become obese, too)
