10 Things You Need to Know About Losing Weight

All to often we make weight loss much more difficult than we should with short-term goals. We are constantly bombarded with the hype about dieting and shedding pounds. The following information may completely change the way think about diets, health and losing weight.

#1 Don’t Skip Meals

When you skip breakfast and get really hungry, part of your brain tries to compensate by urging you to crave high calorie meals.

This happens because your brain is responding to a powerful signal that comes from a hormone called Ghrelin.  Anytime your stomach is empty, Ghrelin sends a signal to your brain that says fill me up NOW! That triggers a powerful urge to eat fatty foods and to compensate. So do your best to have 3 meals a day with snacks in between.
