THEOBROMINE EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Theobromine may have weight loss potential by enhancing other weight loss drugs and reducing body fat percentage.
Theobromine may reduce cravings by inhibiting the synergism between factors involved in cravings.
Theobromine reduces insulin resistance and also the risk of long term complications in diabetic individuals, such as vascular, renal, and ocular complications.

L-TRYPTOPHAN EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

L-Tryptophan, acting via serotonergic neurons in hypothalamic feeding center, alters satiety and food preference, decreases carbohydrate cravings, carbohydrate intake, and daily energy intake, and promotes weight loss.
L-Tryptophan, either endogenous or exogenous, decreases craving. Tryptophan levels are reduced in obese individuals (by 18-25%) and dietary tryptophan administration suppresses carbohydrate craving (by 40%).
L-Tryptophan increases insulin and incretins secretion. The effect results in better glycemic control in diabetics.

SALIX ALBA. L EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Salicin decreases weight by inhibiting the inflammation of adipocytes and increasing the release of fatty acids.
Salicin reduces cravings by improving glycemic control and increasing the concentration of tryptophan and serotonin released from the brain.
Salicin increases the secretion and sensitivity of insulin and protects the pancreas from inflammatory actions resulting in better glycemic control.

CAYENNE PEPPER EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP

Cayenne pepper significantly reduces weight (by 2%) and fat mass (by 7.8%) by increasing energy expenditure (by 13%) and decreasing ad libitum food intake resulting in ~960 calorie deficit per day. In an average 118 kg (260 lb) client, this is 2.4 kg (5.3 lbs) weight loss, 9.2 kg (20 lbs) fat loss, and 4 kg (8.8 lbs) increase in lean mass.
Cayenne pepper reduces cravings by 13.9% as a result of improved glycaemic control and reduced ghrelin levels.
Cayenne pepper reduces postprandial blood glucose levels by 10% resulting in improved glucose control and decreased risk of long-term complications.

5-HTP EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE-

5-HTP (750mg to 900mg per day) increases satiety and decreases carbohydrate and food intake, promoting weight loss.
Serotonin decrease in the brain induces craving for carbohydrates and 5-HTP prevents craving.
Brain tryptophan is decreased in diabetic patients. Although 5-HTP is not shown to decrease blood glucose in diabetics in human studies, it has other beneficial effects in these patients including weight loss.

CITRUS AURANTIUM EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Citrus aurantium decreases weight by up to 2.4 kg (5.3 lbs) in 1 week. Citrus aurantium increases the overall metabolism of fats and lipids by increasing epinephrine stimulation and increases the thermic effect of food by 29% in women.
Citrus aurantium decreases cravings by increasing the synthesis of insulin and dopamine, improving insulin sensitivity, suppressing ghrelin synthesis, protecting the liver from oxidative stress, and decreasing depression and anxiety.
Citrus aurantium improves insulin sensitivity and its synthesis by decreasing proliferation of adipocytes and fat accumulation. It also protects the liver from oxidative stress thus improving its ability to metabolize glucose.

SUPPORTING CLINICAL RESEARCH ON CRAVINGS IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Obesity is caused by overeating, consuming unhealthy food, and satisfying cravings. We propose that while overeating is strongly linked to emotions and consuming unhealthy food relates to poor education, cravings are a medical condition responsible for the majority of unnecessary calories. Cravings differ from hunger in that hunger can be postponed, whereas cravings require immediate satisfaction for a specific substance such as sugar or fat (e.g. cakes, burgers, ice cream). Research proves that cravings are caused by the imbalance of gut flora, blood glucose levels, brain chemicals (mainly neurotransmitters), and five specific hormones (ghrelin, dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and serotonin).

INULIN EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Inulin is a soluble fiber found in 36,000 plant species (wheat, onion, banana, garlic, asparagus, etc.) and in some bacteria and fungi. The chicory roots are the richest source of inulin. Several manufactured forms of inulin are Chicory inulin and High-Performance (HP) inulin. In 2018 the FDA approved inulin as a dietary fiber component used to increase the nutritional value of processed food products in the United States. Inulin stimulates growth of beneficial bacteria, which in turn helps improve bowel function and gut health, curb appetite, and boosts immunity.
