Science behind weight gain
When things are running smoothly, your fat cells produce leptin. This messenger send two signals to your brain; One that you are full now. That shuts down your hunger. Two, it tells the fat inside your body to break down into a kind of fat that can be burned as energy.
Problem no. 1. As you age, most of the things go out of balance (hormones, immune system, digestive system, reproductive system, etc.). Especially, when the food you eat is processed, full of chemicals, additives, pesticides, etc. This interferes with the signals that receive from DNA to your body cells. Young generation is the victim of this problem as they get attracted to fast and unhealthy food.
Problem no. 2. When there is too much inflammation, too many fat cells, a protein called CRP sticks to the leptin and prevents it from delivering message to brain. The result-signal lost.
Problem no. 3. In the face of chronic stress, your level of insulin, cortisol, and inflammatory compounds called cytokines increase. This drives relentless metabolic dysfunction that leads to weight gain, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes. Diabetics have four fold risk of getting brain diseases. Medical research reports that too much sugar can reduce your ability to fight with diseases up to 92%. According to study published in Cell Metabolism, patients who develop diabetes may have an increased risk of blocked arteries, and heart diseases.
Safe and permanent way to lose weight
Awakening the fat burning DNA in your body is not difficult, as long as you have the right instructions to follow. You can reprogram your body to burn fat instead of storing them as pack in your body. Our body is just like a car and blood sugar is the fuel in the tank. The right blend of gas means your car is running smooth. The food you eat are converted into sugar called sugar- it is the fuel your body burn for energy. But to get glucose to your cells, your pancreas has to produce Insulin. Insulin helps to move glucose from your blood vessels into every cell, tissues, organs, bones of your body. If you are insulin resistance, your body can not send glucose to your cells. So, your cells begin to starve. Brain cells that are not properly nourished create fuzzy thinking, and memory problem. If insulin resistance can harm to your brain, imagine what it can do to your heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, eyes, stomach, sex organs, etc. Therefore addressing these health issues are very important.
Key message here is:
Stay away from fast food, toxins, pesticides, and chemicals, heavy metals such as mercury, lead, and arsenic. Get enough sleep, eat right food on a right time in a right way; forgive and forget. Eat in harmony with your genes. You can reverse the deadly dietary and life style habits that are making you sick and fat. The truth is you can reverse most of the diseases if you catch them on time. You just need to know how.
If you have any of the above mentioned symptoms, talk to your doctors. Fix your symptoms at the first place before they reach to diagnostic level with dreadful chronic diseases.
Remember it is not the calories you eat, it’s the information you eat that is so important to make your cells healthy and fully functional. Once you learn how to balance your hormones, immune system, blood sugar, etc., rapid weight loss will be yours.
