Leptin is a hormone that body fat releases, which helps regulating hunger by providing the sensation of satiety.
Ghrelin and leptin are two of many hormones that control appetite.
They are involved in a vast network that regulates body weight.
Leptin decreases appetite, while ghrelin increases it.
Ghrelin is produced by the stomach and signals hunger to the brain.
Those two neuropeptides are secreted in response to food ingested.
Different components modulate Satiety, with an immediate response and one with delay of even 24 hours or more.
It would be important to define further the ingredients with the aim of losing weight, for instance.
Eating fats reduces hunger with long effect, while Sugars and Starches increase it.
Satiety induced by those last ones is short lived.
Fibers modulate and even those outcomes.
The autonomic nervous system is also important. The vagus nerve stimulates ghrelin secretion.
Starches stimulate the parasympathetic pendant, while Fibers inhibit it.
Increases in ghrelin levels are observed in restriction of calories, such as on some diets.
Proteins are being recommended in current literature in many diets, but taken in excess are transformed immediately in glucose, and thus cut hunger with short aftermath, while follows an increase of appetite 24 hours later, and even longer.
Insulin stimulates leptin secretion.
This is the response to Sugars intake, multiplied if together with Amino Acids.
Again, this is the short-term consequence, which reverses with elapsing time.
Thus, if you want to lose weight, you should avoid both.
Eating Fiber-Carbohydrates with high fat absorption is a solution.
Balance between saturated ones and essential fatty acids is important.
A fifty-fifty ratio seems appropriate.
A combination between a ketogenic diet and a vegetarian regime is most adapted.
For digestion of cellulose you need a complete gut flora, like the one of herbivores.
This is why you must introduce this type of nutrition little by little, until intestine and whole body adapt.
Input of ferments is thus crucial.
There is a precise order in which it would be done.
Observe Ancient Cultures, for instance pleasures of the table in France.
A meal starts with a salad, which prolongates transit in small bowel and permits better absorption, followed by an aperitive with strong brandy.
Last one introduces rare germs, but as all alcohol has a sterilizing repercussion.
Main dish is thus accompanied by wine, usually red, because of properties of Resveratrol.
Next comes a dessert, fruit would do the job.
Last is the place for fermented stuff, cheese yoghurt, etc.
Raw Sauerkraut is a very valuable component, which I prepare with sweet paprika powder and vegetal oil.
Last ingredient makes it admissible as entrée, as lipids are digested last in small bowel, and thus protect precious flora from sterilizing potential of alcohol.
Salad contains Pinworms if fresh, which help aliment processing, and further balance immunity.
In the case of gastro-enteritis inflamed stomach cells secrete increased amounts of Ghrelin, which boosts appetite.
Eating fresh seasoned salad tampons favorably acidity and juices and moderates last parameter.
