We’ve all heard someone claim, “If I just look at a piece of cake, I gain weight!” Usually the person is joking — but what if there was a grain of truth to this statement? Conventional wisdom tells us that weight gain and weight loss are the results of a simple equation: if we take in more calories than we burn, the excess units of energy will be stored as fat. In reality, though, the processes that lead the human body to hold or release fat are much more complex and nuanced, and they have more to do with our thoughts than we might guess. Are you curious about the role your mind plays in your metabolism? Join me as I explore the psychology of digestion in this eye-opening new video from #IPEtv!
