Is Your Brain Making You Fat?
Recent research reveals the real reason 41 percent of dieters gain back more weight than they’d lost in five years is due to a power play by the brain.

So, weight loss struggles may have nothing to do with being lazy or lack of willpower.

In fact, no matter what the scale says your weight is today, what scientists are learning is that the brain also has a set body weight range that it will fiercely defend to avoid the perils of potential imminent starvation. This range varies from person to person but is determined by genes and life experiences.

Felicia Stoler, author of Living Skinny in Fat Genes, explains that if your weight has fluctuated through the years, at a higher level than you desire, chances are your brain weight is higher than you imagine.

Dieting can cause your brain weight to rise, and it’s hard for your body to argue with your brain. The best way to reset your brain weight is to stop dieting and eat intuitively by allowing your brain to be your calorie tracker.

Stoler joins host Lisa Davis to share four “mind over matter” tips to help get your brain focus in the right direction. She also discusses how big a role your genes play in predetermining your weight.
