Cholecystokinin (CCK) Animation | How it acts to reduce hunger

How cholecystokinin acts to satiate your hunger

By now, as a reader of the CTJ blog on Fat vs Sugar, you no doubt know about cholecystokinin and why we think that this is such an important hormone – even if you have never heard about it!

I love this short little video clip that very quickly sums up exactly how cholecystokinin works to control your hunger.

Please take less than a minute to watch this great little animation that clarifies for you how cholecystokinin (CCK) is released in the gut in response to ingestion of fat and then sends a response to your brain to indicate satiety, i.e. the release of CCK when you eat fat (not sugar) reduces your hunger.  What an interesting little hormone cholecystokinin is, yet so few people in our obese world seem to have even heard of it.  Now you know it, CCK is going to be your best friend on your path to healthy eating and reaching you target weight and health objectives.
