When a person gets much older, he often binges, or craves food even when he is not hungry. Blame it to aging Leptin receptors. These are receptors found in human brain, specifically the hypothalamus. It is responsive to the presence of a protein called Leptin.

Liptin is a protein hormone that plays a key role in a person’s metabolism and appetite.  What it does is it regulates energy input and output by signalling the brain that he has eaten enough. This leads to the familiar feeling of satiation.

A puzzling research shows that obese people generally have abnormally high concentration of Leptin.  The high concentration of this hormone in the fat tissues may have led to Leptin desensitization. Time factor could be the missing piece of the puzzle. The long term high Leptin presence in the body may have overwhelmed the sensitive receptors distracting their normal function.

African Mango diet may be the best solution to weight loss. The extract of this fruit have shown to improve Leptin receptors’ sensitivity to the hormone Leptin.  The receptor, and not the hormone, is the key to significantly reducing appetite and effectively decreasing weight.





Healthy Soups for Weight Loss

Losing weight is such a hard task especially if you are one of the millions who have tried and failed every diet plan out there. One thing that people should keep in mind is that there is no one diet regimen that will work for everyone. Sure your favorite celebrity may have shed those pounds with the South Beach diet but do not get your hopes up as your body might react to this diet differently.


The best way to find a weight loss program that is right for you is by asking the help of medical and fitness professionals. Ask for an advice from an expert nutritionist in order to come up with a diet plan that will work with your body’s conditions. A top choice that is proven to be a healthy and safe approach to weight loss is the soup diet.


Since soup is liquid-based, it could easily fill up your stomach and provides you with the feeling of being full. Another good thing about soup is that it could provide you with all the vitamins and nutrients that your body needs. Hence, you refrain from eating too much food that is high in carbohydrates.


Keep in mind that in order for your soup diet to become effective, it should be paired with an exercise routine and a healthy lifestyle. Make sure that you include all the healthy vegetables and ingredients, avoid having too much seasoning, and keep it easy, simple and healthy.
