Why our brain plays a role in our weight loss

scientist says,
If you have tried to lose weight by changing your diet and doing more sports but you have not managed to lose weight, it may be cause of your brain.


The brain has considerable power over our weight, our metabolism and our appetite  - and more particularly the region of the hypothalamus, which acts more or less as a control center on our body temperature, our thirst or our hunger.

And several scientific studies show that it is particularly difficult to overcome what has already been determined in our brain.
The brain has a very clear idea of ​​how much food we need to eat and how much we should weigh, so the efforts some people make to change their diet or exercise are not always enough. to achieve his weight loss goals.
Because when we eat less, we tell our body that we are short of food. Instead of promoting weight loss, our body will do precisely the opposite by increasing our appetite and slowing down our metabolism to conserve and store fat.
Low calorie diets are therefore not recommended for weight loss because they almost always fail in the long term.
The brain has become accustomed to having a higher weight and to eating certain foods (perhaps sugary or fatty foods) for years and it becomes more and more difficult to lose weight by making only changes in one's diet or his physical activity.

Ensuring your physical and mental well-being is actually just as important as eating healthy and exercising if you want to lose weight.
In addition, because our brain knows exactly how much food we need to eat and how much we need to weigh, it also means that it can withstand our attempts to lose weight.
It is for this reason that some people can eat what they want without getting fat: they are simply programmed to weigh less.
That's also why when you go on a diet and you lose a certain amount of weight, you put a certain weight on it and then you have a lot of trouble to continue to lose weight or not to pick up a few pounds. .
Often, it's because the brain does not accept this new low weight and resists change.


Although of course a balanced diet and regular physical activity are necessary to succeed in losing weight in the long run, having a slow and sustainable approach is by far the most effective way to lose weight.
The good news is that you can reprogram your brain by making healthier lifestyle choices over the long term, by reducing your sugar and carbohydrate intake, drinking more water, exercising regularly and making sure you sleep well.
Unfortunately, we often tend to think that the goal is to lose weight quickly, while small but steady changes will lead to better results in the long term.
