Study: Overeating is not a cause of obesity, but rather the...

The results of a study and clinical trials conducted by nutrition and public health experts from the United States, Denmark and Canada showed that the root causes of obesity are related to the components of the food we eat, not the quantity.

According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, according to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 40 percent of adult US citizens are obese, which puts them at risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer. Doctors usually advise eating foods and drinks that contain few calories, and consuming them with physical activity.

Harsh diet and intense exercise, and the weight does not decrease .. What is the reason?

This method of treating obesity is based on a centuries-old energy balance model. According to this method, a person’s weight increases when he gets more energy than he consumes. But statistical data indicates that despite recommendations for less food and more physical activity, the number of obese people continues to grow year after year.

But the researchers suggest an alternative model to the carbohydrate and insulin model, which states that the cause of obesity is not overeating, but rather the overeating of foods with a high glycemic index, such as processed foods high in simple carbohydrates. These foods, the basis of the modern Western diet, stimulate hormonal shifts that radically alter the metabolism, leading to fat accumulation and weight gain.

Professor David Ludwig, an endocrinologist at Boston Children’s Hospital, said: ‘When we eat processed carbohydrates, the body increases insulin secretion and suppresses glucagon secretion, which in turn signals the fat cells to store more calories and leave a smaller percentage to fuel muscle and other active tissues. In this case, the brain receives a signal that the body is not getting enough energy, which means feeling hungry.So the body is also trying to save fuel, which slows down the metabolism.So we remain hungry even if we get more fat “.

Based on these results, the researchers point out that instead of inviting people to reduce the amount of food they eat, we must explain to them the need to reduce the intake of simple carbohydrates, because they are the cause of the accumulation of fat in the body, and the constant feeling of hunger, and then people lose excess weight without resorting to burdensome restrictions.
