The Hormone That’s WRECKING Your Weight Loss
Q: I give up. No matter how many diets I’ve been on, and how much weight I’ve lost, the weight comes right back. Is there anything I can do to shed these pounds for good?
— Kenneth T.
Dr. G: You can diet and exercise all you want. For most people, it won’t make a bit of difference—not in the long run anyway.
That’s because the real reason you can’t shed the pounds is because your hormones are out of whack.
Most people don’t think about hormones in relation to eating… but you should.
Hormones send important signals between your belly and your brain that tell you when to eat—and importantly, when to stop eating.
If your hormones aren’t working properly, the signals get jammed, and the result is that “hungry-all-the-time” feeling.
The hormone leptin is a big piece of this puzzle.
Leptin is known as the satiety hormone, or as I like to called it, the “skinny hormone.”
Leptin sends signals to your brain to tell you when you’ve had enough to eat.
But the more fat cells you accumulate, the more leptin they pump out in a effort to get you to stop eating. In an ironic twist, putting out too much leptin causes your body to stop listening to it.
This is called leptin resistance, and it’s a major roadblock obese people face when it comes to weight loss.
But I have a solution that can put an end to the yo-yo diets.
It’s the fruit from a little-known fruit tree from West Africa called African Mango.
When scientists tested a unique compound from inside the African Mango, they discovered something remarkable. It actually reduces the secretion of leptin from fat cells, which allows your body to reestablish leptin sensitivity.
As a result, people who take the African Mango extract are able to lose weight, shed body fat, and reduce their waist circumference—all without diet or exercise.
One study showed that people taking this extract lost 28 pounds in just 10 weeks!
I’m usually not a fan of quick fixes, but in this case the science—and the results—don’t lie.
If you want to try this African Mango extract for yourself, just make sure the supplement contains the compound I mentioned earlier. It’s called IGOB131.
To a brighter day,
