Not Sleeping? Circadian Rhythms are Critical for Long Term Weight Management

Hormones, Weight Loss 1 Comment by Scott Isaacs MD
Your circadian rhythm is the 24-hour clock that drives wakefulness and sleep. Disruptions to this biological clock have profound effects on our bodies and our hormones. New research has identified genes for the biological clock, known as clock genes, which may be the basis for metabolic diseases like obesity, diabetes and insulin resistance.

Adrenals Shot? Probably Not.

Brown Fat, Hormones, Weight Loss 14 Comments by Scott Isaacs, M.D.
Whatever you want to call it—adrenal fatigue, exhaustion, or burnout—it is not a real hormonal condition. Adrenal fatigue is a fake diagnosis that has no scientific basis. If you have been told you have adrenal fatigue, get a second opinion from a board-certified endocrinologist.

Hunger Hormones

"In the past 20 years, we've learned a lot about hunger and satiety hormones," says Scott Isaacs, MD, a board-certified endocrinologist in Atlanta and author of Beat Overeating Now! "The first one was leptin, which was discovered in 1994." Since then, many other hormones that impact hunger, appetite, cravings, and weight have been discovered. "Leptin is a hormone that's produced by fat cells, and it works to suppress appetite in the brain," Isaacs explains. "We used to think a fat cell was an inert storage depot for excess fat, insulating the body. But now we know that fat is an endocrine organ, that is, a gland that produces hormones. Leptin is just one of the hormones produced by fat cells." The amount of leptin circulating in a person is proportional to the amount of body fat and indicates how much energy stores a person has.

Fast Weight Loss Is Better Than Slow Weight Loss

Uncategorized, Weight Loss No Comments by Scott Isaacs, M.D.
A common misconception is that losing weight quickly is not healthy, not sustainable, and will just lead to future weight re-gain. To the contrary, numerous clinical studies demonstrate that following a lifestyle change program which promotes fast initial weight loss can result in better long-term success.
