Where does OVERWEIGHT
As we saw in Chapter I, an excessive intake of calories is not enough reason for obesity.In this chapter we will try to explain why overweight appears.
process of accumulation or non-accumulation of reserve fat in the body is associated with the release of insulin.Therefore, I consider it necessary to devote a few lines of this hormone.
Insulin - a hormone secreted by the pancreas and zhiznenno- performs an important role in metabolism.It acts on glucose (i.e. sugar) contained in the blood to help it to penetrate the body tissue.Glucose or immediately satisfy the energy needs of the body, or if it is large amount, contributes to the accumulation of reserve fat.
So let's look at what foods and in what proportions contributes to the formation of reserve fat.
try to understand what happens in the body when you eat a simple piece of bread.Bread is a carbohydrate, it quickly turns starch into glucose, which enters the blood.Organism immediately enters the stage of hyperglycemia (see chap. II), that is, a state sharp rise in blood glucose.The pancreas responds by immediately and secretes insulin, which performs two important functions:
1. Creates energy reserves in the short term, for urgent necessities of life opganizma or accumulate fat for the long term.
2. Reduces blood sugar levels, causing the glucose to enter the bodies of those who need it (see chap. II of hypoglycemia).
carbohydrate intake TOGETHER C lipid
When you eat a piece of bread and butter, the bread, carbohydrate, will be processed into glucose, and the oil, lipid - fatty acids.Both enter the blood stream.The blood sugar level immediately rises, the pancreas secretes insulin.
If your pancreas is in excellent condition, it will allocate as much insulin as it will need to process the incoming glucose in the blood.If she is sick, the amount of insulin will be allocated more than the dose required for the processing of glucose.As a result of the lipid energy (of oil) reserves in reserve - in fat.It is obvious that weight gain is heavily dependent on the state of your pancreas.A man with a healthy gland can eat everything and in any quantity, while remaining at a normal weight and not get fat.The man, prone to obesity tends to giperinsulizmu.
CONSUMPTION OF LIPID
SEPARATELY Now let's see what happens if you eat a piece of cheese separately.Receipt
individual lipid in the body does not significantly affect the blood glucose and, accordingly, the pancreas does not produce a lot of insulin.If insulin bit of energy education is not going to happen.
This does not mean that the product is eaten you, nothing.During digestion the body extracts from it all the elements necessary for the energy metabolism, in particular, vitamins, fatty acids and mineral salts (e.g., calcium - dairy products).
Of course, this example is schematic and is so simple that even though I gave it to the scientists, it may make you smile.The reality, of course, much more complicated.This example merely reveals the essence of the phenomenon of interest to us, what we need to know to understand the basic rules that will begin to work.
In my opinion, this chapter is the most important in the book, because it shows how the deposition of reserve fat, but it does not answer the question as to why your usual diet, gaining only slightly different form, allows first lose weight andthen stabilize the ideal weight.
NB.The pancreas is a kind of conductor of the orchestra called "metabolism."If it is in good condition, properly fulfills its function, which is to reduce blood glucose in blood sugar, allocating the appropriate dose of insulin.If she was not well, that is, allocates a disproportionate amount of insulin begins pathological deposition of fatty acids in the form of reserve fat.Consequently, the responsibility for the extra weight carries the pancreas.Further you will see that the consumption of foods containing high amounts of sugar, leading to dysfunction of the pancreas.
