Struggle: always hungry

posted on 11/28/2016 Facebook Facebook

Hunger and appetite gene - FTO

You''''ve probably said it yourself or heard people earnestly say they carry "the fat gene." While a gene variation of FTO is prevalent in obese men and women, it''''s not like the genes are packing on the pounds—but they are making you hungry. If you carry a specific variation, you''''re almost biologically hard wired to have more food cravings and become hungry quickly.The culprit is ghrelin, your hunger hormone. 

Some people can eat in the morning and not experience any hunger pangs until lunch or dinner. But others look at food like Garfield looks at lasagna: with an insatiable hunger.

It’snot that they have lower self-control. "If you take someone like this and say, ''''You should only be eating three meals a day without any snacks,'''' the psychological torture will sink in because they’re hungry." The scenario that follows isn''''t a pretty one. The chances are high you''''ll overeat and snack on the wrong types of foods. "These individuals will have deregulation in their eating patterns and won’t get very good results when they stop following the diet and nutrition plans". 

The hack:
"If you give people with specific FTO gene variations diet plans that are high in fat and protein and low in carbs, they’re a lot less likely to stick to it because they’re not getting the same level of satisfaction". Long-term strategies for a healthy lifestyle need to be optimized for body composition and genetic dispositions. High-level ghrelin groups have a lot of emotion tied to their eating habits; in short,they need carbs. While a genetic test in addition to your height, weight, and age can tell you the specific ratio of carbs to fat to protein you should be eating, you can take some hunger-reducing measures yourself. Eat good-quality carbs like sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and brown rice; load up on lean protein sources and fiber-rich foods, and make sure you''''re sufficiently hydrated. If you have two copies of the FTO gene, eat 5 or 6 small meals a day, reduce your fat intake, and begin a diet you can sustain in the long run. Trial and error is not a good idea; if you give up and the diet is too strict, you''''ll suffer metabolic consequences and struggle to stay motivated.
