Dr. David L. Katz, head of the Yale School of Medicine Prevention Research Center, provides expert guidance to lifelong weight control, health and contentment with food: --Master your metabolism: Use healthy snacking to keep a steady level of insulin and leptin in your bloodstream to avoid surges of hunger. --Create a "decision balance": Discover your real feelings about losing weight and maximize your motivation. --Control your hunger: By limiting flavor variety at one sitting the satiety centers in your brain make you feel full faster. --Uncover hidden temptations: Sweet snacks are really salty and salty ones are sweet—hidden additives trigger your appetite. --Change your taste buds: You can keep your favorite foods on the menu, but by making substitutions gradually, you’ll come to prefer healthier foods.
