Every other day there is a new weight loss program available in market.
With all the new weight loss programs coming out each year, you have to start to wonder if any of them truly work or if they’re all just hyped up by people trying to sell the actual program.
Well, this year rolled around and once again we have several new weight loss trends such as Garcinia Cambogia and the Venus Factor. We’re only going to examine one in this article, though: Venus Factor.
This program is designed specifically for women and we’re told it helps to speed up women’s metabolism.
The hormone “leptin” which is found the female body, is referred to as the “starvation hormone”. Here’s a little explanation of how it works.
When leptin levels are high, your brain thinks that you have enough energy to burn fat and lose weight. When leptin levels are low, your brain essentially tells your body to go into starvation mode. When this happens, your body tries to increase leptin levels by stimulating the vagus nerve, often referred to as the energy storage nerve. When this nerve gets stimulated, it causes hunger. Something we don’t want when we’re trying to lose weight.
Now you’re probably wondering what causes leptin levels to drop. You might not want to hear this, but weight loss is what causes leptin levels to drop. So that’s why weight loss can be extremely difficult for women.
The Venus Factor gives you a list of healthy foods you can eat to essentially keep your leptin levels at a high level so your body doesn’t go into starvation mode and you can lose weight. These foods include a lot of organic and soy based products.
The Venus Factor weight loss program comes in the form of an eBook so you can get it immediately whenever you want to lose weight. It also comes with a 30 day money back guarantee which just adds to the legitimacy of the product. It is a 12 week system and the amount of weight you can lose really comes down to how much work you’re willing to put in. There seems to be so many different reviews of this product out there that it’s hard to say how good it really is just by doing research.
Being that this program specifically mentions leptin makes it sound extremely promising, and the fact that it comes with a money back guarantee helps as well. If you’re a woman looking for a weight loss program, this might be something you should look into.
