Your eyes are getting heavy. Look deeply at my swinging pendulum. You are very relaxed. Now let’s count down to one starting at five. Five-four-three-two?
Okay that was a pretty weak attempt to hypnotize you, but that’s exactly what I wish I could do. I would love to perform some hypnosis on all earthlings and erase how they look at causes of insulin resistance and excess body fat ? how it gets there, why it’s there, and what can be done to fix it and prevent it from getting there in the first place.
Modern obesity researchers have really helped to paint a much better understanding of body fat by introducing Metabolic Syndrome X.
For starters, consider that scientists have selectively bred a certain strain of mice to become overweight once they come into the world. Secondly, when eating the exact same amount as their buds that haven’t been bred to become obese, they store huge amounts of excess body fat while the remaining mice stay lean. This means that body fat accumulates without overeating.
Secondly, these same mice with the obesity strain, or the metabolic syndrome diet, once they become fat, start eating more than their unlucky pals. They eat more because they are hungrier. But if they are accumulating body fat, why would they want to eat more?? They’ve got fat reserves out to Wazoo, why keep packing it on?
No matter who you are, take the following message to heart, because it is unique, it is accurate, and it makes obesity, dieting, and all that jazz a problem with a totally different cause than what’s assumed, and a totally different solution?
Energy is ingested in the form of calories. What your body does with that energy is primarily a factor of liver enzymes and hormones such as insulin (long known to be a storage hormone). It’s these substances that determine how that energy is partitioned.
If insulin is a fat storage hormone, and those who don’t produce enough of it (type I diabetics) lose weight no matter how much they eat, what do you think happens to those who produce too much, which includes, by modest estimates, the 75 million Americans that are considered insulin resistant?
Too much energy is stored as fat, plain and simple. This is the result, not one of the causes of insulin resistance as conventional ‘wisdumb’ suggests.
Insulin activates the storage mechanism, storing food energy away into fat cells. If insulin remains chronically elevated, which science is increasingly showing that such a thing is frighteningly-common, then fat stored in cells is also blocked from exiting the fat cell. In other words, more energy goes into fat cells than is allowed out, and the equilibrium between energy in and energy out is askew. There is literally a ?calorie greenhouse? trapping those calories.
What does all this mean?? It means that instead of your muscles and organs receiving that energy, it becomes trapped in fat cells, a condition known as Metabolic Syndrome X. Translation: you pack on body fat while the rest of your body starves. Not only that, but in order to satiate your ever-increasing hunger, you need to eat more food than everyone else. Either eat more, or starve yourself, which slows down the metabolism, causes increasingly addictive eating behaviors, makes you more likely to be depressed, yada, yada, yada, and so on practically to infinity.
Overweight and obese people are hungry and tired because they are starving. Sounds ironic I know, but it’s simply a matter of food being ‘siphoned off into body fat,? as world-renowned obesity researcher M.R.C. Greenwood puts it. This creates ?a state in which the lean body mass and selected vital organs are calorically deprived.? This results in what Greenwood calls, ?compensatory hyperphagia.? (AKA ? eating more to compensate).
The bottom line?
You are hungrier because your lean tissues aren’t receiving all the food you’re eating. You don’t feel well and are lethargic because your lean tissues aren’t receiving all the food you’re eating. Even if you starve yourself on a low calorie diet, you are likely to lose muscle and slow down your metabolism to an extremely low level which in turn causes overeating and an increased propensity to store body fat. It’s not like a yo-yo which goes down and then comes back to where it started. It’s more like throwing a bouncy ball against the ground as hard as you can, and it comes rocketing up way higher than where it was thrown from.
