Just following up on our post from last week — Robert — I wanted to share with you my single best weight-loss tip. In your body, nothing happens by accident. Every single physiologic process is a tight orchestration of hormonal signals. Whether our heart beats faster or slower is tightly controlled by hormones. Whether we urinate a lot or a little is tightly controlled by hormones. Whether the calories we eat are burned as energy or stored as body fat is also tightly controlled by hormones. So, the main problem of obesity is not necessarily the calories we eat, but how they are spent. And the main hormone we need to know about is insulin. Insulin is a fat-storing hormone. When we eat, insulin goes up, signaling the body to store some food energy as body fat. Higher than usual insulin levels tell our body to store more food energy as body fat.
My doc gave me 3 months to regulate with diet and fasting and recommend this book. Would like this to stop. Thus people who are chronically sleep deprived will often through no fault of their own, make more impulsive food decisions, and crave more carbohydrates. Thanks for putting this info out there! One question. Thank you for making the plans so easy to print out. Congrats on your first 24 hour fasting cycle. He is only 60 kgs works hard plays sport. I felt out of control!
The Obesity Code aims to clear up myths on weight loss, and provide a simple formula for long term success. Since writing The Obesity Code Jason has followed up with The Diabetes Code aimed at helping people prevent or reverse type 2 diabetes, and The Complete Guide to Fasting which covers intermittent and extended fast details. Jason suggests that to understand weight loss requires understanding the hormonal roots of obesity. He explains that the hormone insulin is the key driver of obesity. Therefore obesity is a hormonal, not a caloric imbalance. He recommends we focus on two key areas. Instead Jason outlines some general principles for eating. Then in regards to the highly glycemic, popular staples; bread, pasta, potatoes and cereals Rice — Jason notes that many Asian populations have eaten diets based on highly refined white, polished, rice.
