VITAMIN B12 EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) is a water-soluble vitamin, found naturally in a wide variety of animal foods (meats, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy). Vitamin B12 helps convert food into glucose, which gives energy. Vitamin B12 increases the metabolism of fats and glucose, boosting energy production, which in turn decreases weight gain by muscle production and fat loss. It also helps in the production of red blood cells and DNA, as well as the proper functioning of the central nervous system. It promotes high levels of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine, preventing depression and emotional eating.

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

Magnesium supplementation in obese patients promotes weight loss and prevents complications of weight-loss regimens. 
Magnesium supplementation reduces cravings as a result of improved glucose control and increased synthesis and sensitivity of serotonin. 
Decreased magnesium levels increase the risk of diabetes. In contrast, magnesium supplementation in diabetic patients decreases fasting plasma glucose, HbA1c, and weight and therefore helps to control diabetes.

EFFECTS OF SWEETENERS ON WEIGHT LOSS, CRAVINGS, AND DIABETES

Sugar is made from equal parts of fructose and glucose. Almost all sugars and sweeteners activate the brain reward system, but to different extents. For instance,  fructose consumption is accompanied by a higher activity rise in the brain reward system and less satiety inducing. The effect is seen to a relatively less extent in glucose, saccharin, and sucralose.

VITAMIN B6 EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is a water-soluble vitamin, which is best obtained from beans, poultry, fish, and dark leafy greens. Vitamin B6 is significant to protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism and the creation of red blood cells. It regulates mood and reduces stress by promoting neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine, gamma-aminobutyric acid) production, which in turn decreases cravings, preventing emotional eating, and weight gain. It is also important for thought processing and healthy brain development. Vitamin B6 enhances insulin’s effect on blood glucose and glycemic index in diabetes, which leads to higher glucose-lowering potency and better glucose control.

GREEN CAMELLIA SINENSIS EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Green Camellia Sinensis decreases body weight (by 4.6%), abdominal fat (by 7.7%), and waist circumference (by 4.5%) as a result of increased thermogenesis and fat oxidation.
Green Camellia Sinensis decreases cravings by improving insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism, protecting brain centers sensitive to dopamine and serotonin from oxidative stress and stabilizing mood. 
Green Camellia Sinensis decreases the risk of diabetes (by 33%) by reducing HbA1C levels, improving glucose metabolism, and increasing insulin sensitivity by 13%.

NO CALORIES 4 HOURS BEFORE SLEEP EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP REGIMEN

Post-dinner snacking leads to weight gain through the increased caloric intake (Waller, 2004). Nocturnal snacking increases sugar levels. When sugar levels are increased, hormones such as insulin, ghrelin, and leptin, are activated and specific systems in the body begin to work  (Kalergis, 2003). As the body becomes more alert through glucose metabolism, it may be difficult to switch off and fall asleep (Kristen, 2007). As shown in our other document, inadequate sleep causes weight gain. Women and men consume 15.3% and 9.2% more calories when deprived of sleep, respectively (St-Onge, 2011).

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

L-Tyrosine is a precursor for dopamine and norepinephrine, which may help to promote weight loss through increased body activity and thermogenesis and decreased appetite.
Tyrosine (aka 4-hydroxyphenylalanine) is a non-essential amino acid used in the synthesis of certain neurotransmitters including dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine, as well as thyroid hormones thyroxine and triiodothyronine (Rosebrough 1994).
