The research team conducts observations on 20 people with obesity. The entire respondents were asked live ultra low calorie diet for two months, and successfully undergo a decline in average weight of 6 kg.
After that, each respondent underwent a weight-maintenance program that is more ‘ light ‘ for a year. And as a result, their weight stabilized.
From the experiment that researchers found that the hormone ghrelin, which triggers hunger, could be increased by 23 percent when respondents underwent the first program.
“Apparently when the diet is started, the body adapts by increasing your appetite. Maybe that’s the trick to ‘ survive ‘ or against your wishes, “brightest researchers, Signe Sorensen Torekov, PhD as reported men’s Health.
But next year, ghrelin respondents declined to 7 percent. Torekov suspect then began to slow down the body’s adaptation process. “Because the body was getting used to his new weight, so that the production of hormone that triggers hunger also not as much as usual,” he added.
Interestingly, in conjunction with the decrease in the production of the hormone ghrelin, the researchers also found an increased occurrence of two hormones that help to engender a sense of satiety, namely GLP-1 and PYY3-36. His Ascension is also gradually taking place in the span of a year.
According Torekov, the extra fat in the body also plays a role in hindering the work of the cell to produce hormone satiating maker. Therefore, when someone succeeds in eliminating body fat and keep it within a certain time, the production of their hormones will return to normal.
“The key, when you can maintain weight in a year’s time, you’ll start to rarely feel hungry, so keep the weights remain stable into the job that much easier,” he added.
