In our newest video for the CHEK Blog, Jator Pierre and I discuss two critical factors at work behind the scenes that make fat loss such a challenge:
- Our hunter-gatherer ancestry that constantly reminds our bodies to treat food as scarce.
- The “fat thermostat” our bodies have that tells us when we need to be more active or when we need to eat.
With our society drowning in a “sea of food” — grocery stores, restaurants and coffee shops sitting on most street corners — those ancestral needs in conjunction with our fat thermostat go askew, priming our bodies to become used to higher amounts of fat than we really need.
In the face of those complexities, Jator provides some simple tips you can use TODAY to train your brain to make food far less seductive and to help you keep the pounds off.
