When medical researchers were studying infertility they found that weight gain and polycystic ovarian syndrome are the two biggest causes. These are both associated with increased blood levels of insulin. The pancreas releases insulin in response to blood glucose levels which are directly related to the foods that we eat. We could say that we are using food as medicine when we use it to control the release of insulin.Insulin, serotonin and human growth hormone are the hormones which researchers have found to be in imbalance in people who are overweight or obese. The next step was to research the affect of different foods on their secretion in order to design an effective weight loss programme based on a balanced diet.Human Growth Hormone has been studied since the 1970s and is recognised as one of the most important hormones for general well being. It is responsible for regeneration and preservation of body, organ and muscle tissue, break down of fat, normalising blood pressure, maintaining levels of vitality and controlling blood cholesterol. Insulin regulates blood sugar levels and is released by the pancreas in response to the amount of glucose in the blood stream. Hunger cravings which are often satisfied with fatty foods high in sugar are generally caused by low blood sugar. Keeping blood sugar at even desirable levels throughout the day is vital for effective weight loss.Cravings for high carbohydrate food are controlled by serotonin. Levels of serotonin increase when insulin is controlled and a sense of well being results. In overweight and obese people it is common to find low Human Growth Hormone and serotonin levels and high resistance to insulin. This can result in one or more of the following symptoms – constant cravings for food, high rate of storage of food as fat, weight gain, heartburn, indigestion, fatigue, pre-diabetes, diabetes, fluid retention and irritable bowel syndrome. Embarking on a meticulously crafted weight loss programme which includes eating foods chosen in order to restore the balance of these hormones will often bring about improved health and significant weight loss.
