 Decrease Your Hunger by Eating This



If your goal is weight loss or fat loss, you're in luck.


This article gives you an easily implementable strategy to keep your appetite in check so you can achieve your goals easier.


We’ll start with the science and then cover the strategy. 


Let’s begin.


The Science:


Some people want to know the "how."


Some don't.


So if you're not as into the science-y side of this as we are, scroll right down to the strategy section.


We promise our feelings won't be hurt 😉.


Cholecystokinin (CCK) is a hormone that is synthesized and secreted in the first segment of the small intestine. 


Its presence causes the release of digestive enzymes and bile, and also acts as a potent hunger suppressant.


We want to take advantage of the hunger suppression aspect to support our clients on their weight loss journeys. 


CCK is secreted with the ingestion of certain amino acids and particular fatty acids. 


According to the accepted theory, humans remain hungry and continue to eat until an adequate level of amino acids and essential fatty acids have been consumed. 


That makes perfect sense since there are essential amino acids and essential fatty acids that are absolutely critical in everything from energy production to muscle growth to maintenance of the immune system to brain function. 


Ingesting foods high in these particular amino acids and fatty acids not only helps you toward a leaner and healthier lifestyle, it also keeps hunger at bay so compliance is far easier. 


The Strategy:


Including certain foods in your plan that properly stimulate CCK release will keep your hunger in check so you can be more consistent on your weight loss / fat loss journey.  


Foods that contain the targeted amino acids include:

  • Animal meats
  • Whey
  • Cottage cheese
  • Collagen


Foods that contain the targeted fatty acids include:

  • Beef
  • Eggs
  • Omega 3 supplements
  • CLA supplements


With appetite better regulated, you will find consistent compliance with your weight loss plan to be easier and more enjoyable. 


Start by including one or two of the foods listed above and enjoy an easier path to leaner and healthier.


To sum it up…The Summary:

  • Cholecystokinin (CCK) is a hormone that blunts appetite
  • CCK is stimulated when particular amino acids and fatty acids are ingested
  • Including foods rich in amino acids and certain fatty acids can make your weight loss journey easier and more enjoyable


One sentence takeaway:

Including lean protein sources and omega 3’s in your diet can leverage the hormone CCK to blunt appetite and make your weight loss journey easier.
