Our brain constantly monitors how much we should weigh and automatically regulates this.
It does this by changing our appetite, fullness and cravings for certain types of food.
These key areas and how they are influenced are highlighted below.
The hypothalamus regulates appetite by receiving feedback from hormones such as leptin, insulin and ghrelin.
The hypothalamus uses this feedback to automatically control your hunger.
However, when body weight goes down the hypothalamus unfortunately increases appetite significantly.
Taste, cravings and food choices are influenced by the area of the brain stem called the parabrachial nucleus.
A common finding when people try to lose weight is that cravings for carbohydrates increase.
This is especially true when the body is under stress making it harder to resist snacks and excess calories.
This area of the brain stem is called the nucleus of the solitary tract.
It automatically regulates fullness by monitoring signals from the gut and hormone levels in the blood.
It is this part of the brain determines portion size and lets you know when you are full.
When losing weight it is this area of the brain stem that often leads to someone never feeling satisfied and typically results in overeating.
The Modius technology activates these key areas to help with weight loss.
It does this by stimulating the vestibular nerves, which we know influence the hypothalamus and the brain stem.
Modius has already been used by thousands of people across the world to improve appetite, fullness and cravings.
This ultimately makes their weight loss journey easier and more enjoyable!
