Do you want to lose weight and feel full all day? Then you should consider adding functional foods to your diet that target the regulation of appetite. It has long been believed that the gastrointestinal (GI) peptides like cholecystokinin (CCK), glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and peptide YY (PYY) secreted after a meal can predict the response of appetite, including food intake. But, inducing GI-peptide secretion through diet may not be enough to suppress energy intake and promote weight loss.
Studies(1) have shown that it takes a minimum of 3.6-fold increase in CCK, 4.0-fold in GLP-1, and 3.1-fold in PYY to suppress ad libitum energy intake, but these levels can only be achieved through diet in 29%, 0%, and 8% of interventions, respectively. As yet, no single peptide or group of peptides can be measured in blood to accurately predict hunger and food intake.
The challenge of developing foods that target enhanced secretion of GI-origin "satiety" peptides for weight loss remains a significant one. However, Energy Pods are a step in the right direction. Made with almonds and sweetened with erythitol, these chocolate flavored Energy Pods contain 7 grams of medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil and 10 grams of protein per pod, which will help you feel full and provide you with the energy you need to get through the day. So, why wait? Try a chocolate flavored Energy Pod today and start feeling the difference!
