Brand new nutrition seminar / workshop – How do food and lifestyle affect the hormones that make you hungry?

What are the best known ways to manage appetite and hunger hormones, and improve your lifestyle so you can lose weight, and keep it off (while maintaining excellent health)?

I developed this seminar recently and delivered it to a group at The Healthy Living Show. I was thrilled how well it was received and how valuable many told me it was. I have extended it into a longer seminar / workshop so you will leave with a plan to put an appetite controlling diet into action, with tips on how to keep weight off.

If losing weight were a simple matter of eating less and moving more, we would all easily reach our ideal weight and stay there. But we struggle to eat less and when we exercise, our appetite often increases. We may lose weight initially but we struggle to maintain that weight loss.

Our bodies are complex biological systems, not just food-burning engines. Each food group triggers the release of different hormones, all of which regulate our appetite in different ways. Added to this our current environment constantly threatens to sabotage our best efforts: ‘We are stone-age bodies, with a stone-age mind living in a space-age world’

In this talk, I’ll examine how the food you eat and lifestyle factors affect hormones that control appetite, cravings, blood sugar, fat loss, and weight gain. I’ll outline clinically proven ways to eat and live so you can manage your appetite, increase energy, decrease inflammation and leaky gut, lose body fat, and keep it off. We will also look at the mindset of those who have lost weight and kept it off long-term. These guidelines will not only help you lose weight, they will maintain health and wellbeing for the rest of your life.

  1. I think it’s a great idea your looking at the mindset in the first seminar of those ‘who have lost weight and kept it off long-term’.
