Our hormones are incredibly powerful chemicals in our body. In tiny amounts, they trigger massive responses. When our bodies are running as they should, it is hormones that play a major role in keeping things operating. When changes occur, hormones are released to deal with it.
Specific hormones play a large role in weight management. Some are responsible for making us hungry, some for making us feel full. Others increase our propensity to lay down body fat, some of it even in specific areas.
