Utilizing mealtime strategies, such as intermittent fasting or early eating, can help improve fat burning and reduce appetite. Those who practice early eating restricted feeding strategies had lower levels of ghrelin and improved fat burning.
Recent findings from University of Warwick researchers could help find new treatments to control eating habits that lead to obesity. Researchers discovered tanycytes detect amino acids from food and directly 'tell' the brain when we feel full. Certain food, such as chicken, lentils and avocados, activate tanycytes and make us feel fuller quicker.
Neurons in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) appear to regulate food intake. The neurons appear to form part of a network that controls appetite loss in mice.
NPGL, a newly discovered molecule, increases appetite during periods of fasting and decreases it when we gorge, researchers report.
A new study reports human fat cells have their own internal clocks and circadian rhythms which affect metabolic functions.
Researchers report their discovery could open new doors for the development of drugs to control obesity and weight gain.
Researchers report pyramidal neurons in the basolateral amygdala help us to recognize and categorize foods.
A new study reports brown fat interacts with secretin, a gut hormone, to signal the feeling of fullness to the brain while eating.
A new study opens the door for new treatments to help treat obesity and other eating disorders.
