Overeating is not due to lack of will power or personal weakness. Overeating is caused by out of control hunger hormones. Trying to control your hunger can be a lot like trying to control your breathing. Yes, you can slow your breathing for a while, but eventually, your biological drive to breathe will take over. Hunger is the same way. You can reduce the amount you eat and even lose some weight, but eventually your biological drive will prevail, forcing your body to stop losing weight and eventually gain it all back. Willpower will never win out over biology. On top of biological hunger, we eat for pleasure and due to boredom and stress which is normal for all humans. We crave certain foods because of reasons we don’t always understand, we eat more food than our body needs and gain weight. In the background, environmental endocrine disruptors, chemicals that alter hormones are slowing metabolism and driving up appetite and cravings even more.

In my book Beat Overeating Now! I explore the factors that trigger hunger hormones and offer simple, achievable methods for controlling appetite and cravings to help you beat overeating for good. Drawing on years of clinical experience and research on the connections between hormones and body weight, I explain how easy it is to gain weight in modern life. Hunger hormones like leptin, ghrelin, cholecystokinin, glucagon-like peptide-1, peptide YY, insulin, cortisol influence our brain’s ability to regulate our body weight set point.

I explain how to eat in a way to outsmart your hunger hormones to help you beat overeating now. I show you how different types of foods can help you control your hunger, satiety, cravings, boost metabolism, increase energy levels and improve health. I also show you how health conditions like inflammation, autoimmunity, allergies or intolerance, hormone resistance or hormonal deficiencies can cause hormonal imbalance, prevent weight loss, and how you can overcome these problems. I show you how to harness the power of your hormones through the right meal plan and the right types of physical activity, so you regain control of your weight and attain a healthy body for the rest of your life.

In this book, I show you how hormones affect your cravings and satiety cues, making you feel hungry when you don’t need to eat or leading you to eat the wrong foods. I explain how you can restore your hormonal balance by eating the right foods in the right amounts at the right times, losing weight and keeping it off for good.
