Story at-a-glance

  • Exposing food industry strategies designed to keep you coming back for more, Hungry for Change reveals why so many are suffering with weight issues and poor health despite their best intentions
  • Ignoring the root causes of obesity, the American Medical Association has declared obesity a disease. Conveniently, two new prescription weight loss drugs have recently been released, and two obesity vaccines are in development
  • One route being investigated is a vaccine that targets the hunger hormone ghrelin. However, recent research shows that knocking out ghrelin leads to an exaggerated anxiety response to stress
  • For the majority of people, severely restricting carbohydrates such as sugars, fructose, and grains in your diet is the key to sustained weight loss. A growing body of evidence also shows intermittent fasting is particularly effective
  • To boost weight loss and get the most out of your exercise routine, make sure to incorporate high-intensity, short-burst-type exercises two to three times per week
