our gut, brain & hunger cues

In this blog I've written for Rhiannon Lambert (RNutr), I take a look at the role of our gut hormones, and gut microbiome communicating with our brain and how this plays a role in our hunger and satiety cues.


The gut-brain axis is a two-way communication between our gut and brain, which has several effects on our physiological and psychological health. One way this communication works is through our gut hormones and gut microbiome (1). Research in this area has been growing, what is presented in this blog is up-to-date as of publication, but more is needed to understand this relationship fully.


Finally, in this piece I take a look at how we can use the principles of intuitive eating to help us become more aligned with our hunger and satiety cues.
