Investigating the Hormonal Factors Associated with Obesity and Weight Loss.

Hormones control weight, fat distribution, and belly fat. Understanding the hormonal elements of abdominal fat and weight loss can illuminate metabolism. Key hormones regulating abdominal fat and weight loss:

The pancreas releases insulin, a hormone that stores fat, in response to food intake, particularly carbohydrates. It aids cell glucose storage.

Leptin: This hormone, produced by fat cells, stimulates the brain to satisfy hunger and promotes feelings of fullness.

Cortisol: Stress Hormone: Cortisol levels can rise due to persistent stress. Central Obesity: Chronic stress and high cortisol levels are linked to stomach obesity.

Adiponectin: Improves insulin sensitivity by being generated by fat cells. Anti-inflammatory: It may protect against metabolic diseases linked to abdominal fat.

Estrogens: Fat Distribution: Estrogens affect body fat distribution. Menopausal women accumulate more belly fat due to lower estrogen levels.

Estrogen replacement therapy may affect fat distribution in postmenopausal women.

 A balanced diet, frequent exercise, stress management, and enough sleep are needed to maintain a healthy weight. Genetics and medical history affect hormonal balance and weight management.
