Hungry Brain

Are you unable to feel full during a meal?

Satiation is the feeling of fullness and satisfaction that tells the brain when it’s time to stop eating. With a hungry brain, the brain is unable to determine when a meal is over, resulting in increased food consumption during a meal.

Satiation-related genes and/or low levels of certain metabolites predict the hungry brain obesity phenotype.

Your weight loss intervention will stimulate hormones that relay fullness, which is shown to decrease food intake and body weight among individuals with this dominant phenotype.
