Leptin and ghrelin are two hormones that have been recognized to have a major influence on energy balance. Leptin is a mediator of long‐term regulation of energy balance, suppressing food intake and thereby inducing weight loss. Ghrelin on the other hand is a fast‐acting hormone, seemingly playing a role in meal initiation. As a growing number of people suffer from obesity, understanding the mechanisms by which various hormones and neurotransmitters have influence on energy balance has been a… Expand
