Can a Fasting Diet Actually Cause Obesity?

According to studies, the fasting diet does not always work, on the contrary, it often causes the opposite effects, leading to obesity and serious health damage. Diets that have fasting as a principle, in reality, are useful above all to a few people, perhaps to those who already have their own weight and therefore do not need to lose weight. People who, on the other hand, are on a low-calorie diet to lose weight, should stay away from certain diets. Why are some people always hungry and unable to lose weight?

It is a neurological question. Leptin is the hormone produced by fat cells, this has the task of providing information to the brain about the amount of reserves accumulated in the body. When reserves are running low, try the sense of hunger. In a low-calorie diet, leptin is activated even a few minutes after a meal, decreasing its levels.

The phenomenon of hunger does not only involve the hormone and the brain, but all of it endocrine system, thus also including the adrenal and pituitary glands. These glands secrete another hormone, corticosterone, which is linked to energy and stress levels based on food consumption.
