Weight gain is a problem worldwide, but researchers have discovered that the obesity epidemic is not down to laziness or weakness, but a hormone imbalance. If the body is leptin-resistant, it will not release leptin, the hormone in the brain that states it feels satisfied. Sugar is the main culprit for leptin-resistance, and a body lacking in leptin will turn to the hunger hormone, ghrelin, as a substitute. However, researchers have long since discovered that obese people have too much leptin in the body, and what the brain should read as “satisfaction” instead reads as “starvation.”
