A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that overweight adults who followed a program of modest caloric restriction achieved significant reductions in body fat mass in just six months, while improving the ability of cells to normally utilize insulin, i.e., improving sensitivity to insulin.80-82
Hunger is the factor that often precludes most people from even considering a low-calorie diet. Pinolenic acid, from the Korean Pine Nut, stimulates the release of two of the body’s most powerful hunger-suppressing hormones: CCK (cholecystokinin) and GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1).83 This sends a feeling of satiety or “fullness” to the brain, decreasing the desire to eat and helping to control excessive calorie intake. People taking this oil had an increase in the satiety hormones CCK and GLP-1 in the bloodstream and a 36% reduced desire to eat.83
