Although you may struggle with excess weight, it does not appear to be a result of a high responsiveness to environmental cues or powerful internal cues. You will likely be very responsive to nutrition changes and should excel with a scientific approach to obesity treatment.
You are not alone! The relationship between hunger and satiety is complex - involving multiple parts of the brain and body. Many individuals struggling with the disease of obesity have diminished satiety, disinhibited eating and a strong attraction to hyper palatable foods. Individuals with excess weight also have a greater likelihood of being overwhelmed by environmental cues to over consume than individuals of normal weight. For most patients, successful treatment of obesity involves more than nutrition education. It involves addressing and conquering some of the dysfunctional eating patterns and psychological processes that contributed to, or are a result of, the excess weight. At Heartland Weight Loss, we have advanced training in this field of Obesity Medicine. Let us help you conquer your excess weight - permanently.
