Neuroscientist and author Michael Graziano is our guest today in Episode 1089 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Today we have an interview for you that goes a bit deeper into the psychology behind hunger and weight loss. What if it has little to nothing to do with blood sugar, insulin, or a gurgling in your stomach and is all in your head. This is the hypothesis of a Professor of Neuroscience at Princeton University in New Jersey named Michael Graziano who wrote a thought-provoking column for Aeon called The hunger mood that caught Jimmy's attention. He concludes that losing weight and capturing control of hunger and cravings has little to do with anything except your state of mind, your mood, and that we're all at least a little hungry all the time. Michael wrote a book in 2013 about his general thinking on this subject entitled Consciousness and the Social Brain. Although the book itself doesn't specifically address hunger and weight loss, Jimmy and Michael dive deeply into this fascinating subject that might run counter to what you've always believed about how the body and brain works. This is one fascinating discussion you don't want to miss!
