Lacking Dopamine? It May Be Affecting Your Food Cravings

Lacking Dopamine? It May Be Affecting Your Food Cravings

Can you answer these questions for me? How often do you…

  • Have a late-night snack?
  • Keeping eating after you’re full?
  • Lose energy or become irritable when you cut back on favorite foods?

If this frequently sounds like you, you may have low dopamine levels. 

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter released by our brain. It plays many roles in our body including: 

  • Movement
  • Memory & Learning
  • Pleasure/Reward
  • Attention & Cognition
  • Sleep
  • Mood

When dopamine levels are low, the result is strong food cravings and addictive behaviors (think food, shopping, alcohol, gambling…). Often these food cravings are for salty food such as cheese, nuts, chips, or wine. By regulating dopamine levels in your body, you can better control hunger cravings instead of losing control and overeating unhealthy foods. 

If you think low dopamine might be a cause of some health issues – let’s schedule a call and talk about your symptoms. There are ways to stop food cravings and begin to stabilize dopamine levels in your body once and for all!
