Weight loss seems like an unimaginable goal to achieve when we have failed to observe weight loss diet plans several times. Nevertheless a recent study charges the hunger-inducing neurons of the brain for triggering the cellular process of autophagy. Autophagy is a degrading process that gets triggered when the cells encounter the phase of starvation. The hunger signal is potentially boosted by agouti-related peptide (AgRP) neurons in the hypothalamus of brain which are also responsible for increasing the level of fatty acids in the body. Grounded on this study, researchers continue to emphasize on the option of working out for shedding the extra pounds.
