Podcast #636: Why You Overeat and What to Do About It

We all know the basics of losing weight: don’t consume more calories than your person needs. And more many of us still overeat regardless, sometimes continually, sometimes to the point where it leads to obesity, diabetes, and a significantly lower quality of life. Why does our demeanor expose our intentions to be lean and healthy?

My guest today argues that the answer lies in the ancient impulses of our mentalities that no longer fit the environment of the modern world. His name is Stephan Guyenet, and he’s a neuroscientist, obesity investigate, and the author of The Hungry Brain: Outsmarting the Inclination That Make Us Overeat. We begin our conversation with what’s changed in our country to turn obesity into an epidemic, and why Americans started gaining more weight in the 1970 s. We then dive into exactly how the reward system in our psyches leads us to eat more than we need to, how modern created nutrients like Doritos hijack this reward system, and the factors that ramp up our thirsts, including the buffet effect. We then explain how to push back on the desire to overeat, including reevaluating the assumption that all the food you spend is therefore necessary to savory. From there we turn to the role that the hormone leptin plays in appetite regulation, how it can make it hard to keep the value “were losing” from coming back, and the best skills to manage this countervailing magnetism. We objective our discussion with the role stress and sleep play in weight gain.
