If you've ever been on a diet, you probably remember denying yourself certain foods, only to find yourself thinking about these forbidden treats all the time. And even though you could be doing a great job of resisting the temptation, you might unknowingly be sabotaging your weight loss efforts because of this quirk of human metabolism: digestion begins not in the stomach, but in the brain. This means that how we think about certain foods actually has an impact on how our bodies metabolize those foods. If you’ve always been told that weight gain or weight loss is the result of a simple caloric equation, get ready for a whole new perspective! This eye-opening new podcast episode explains the mind's important and surprising role in weight loss.
