Hi, friends! Today I’m blogging over at the WTE? Meal Plans blog! You may have noticed I’ve been publishing over there about twice per month. It’s been kind of fun to be able to write posts over there that are a little different from the ones I write here. Here my main focuses are to connect with you guys over the journey of living a healthy lifestyle. Writing about what I’m doing to stay healthy or keep my family healthy is both fun and keeps me on track.
Over there, my main goal is to share why I designed WTE? Meal Plans the way I did. So, today I’m discussing leptin resistance, one of the hormones responsible for regulating weight loss. When weight loss backfires (aka you gain back more than you lost) Leptin Resistance is often to blame.
As human beings we are hard-wired to seek please and avoid pain, it’s an innate physiological response that we can sometimes push past. For example, when we attempt to “diet” we seek pain and avoid pleasure. When we fail, we blame our own willpower and a lack of strength, dismissing the hard-wired biological responses that are at play.
