The Problem with Obesity
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) labels obesity as public enemy number one. According to their research, “in 2009-2010, more than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) were obese.”
Obese individuals have a higher risk for the following:
- Coronary heart disease;
- Type 2 diabetes;
- Cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon);
- Hypertension (high blood pressure);
- Liver and Gallbladder disease;
- Osteoarthritis (a degeneration of cartilage and its underlying bone within a joint);
- Sleep apnea, respiratory problems and more.
What is the Source of Most Weight Issues in Today’s Society?
Overabundance of Insulin due to Skyrocketed Sugar Consumption
According to Dr. Tran Tien Chanh, MD PhD, who developed the weight loss protocol over 20 years ago in France , the “the cause of most weight issues in a modern society is insulin dysfunction. A diet grossly disproportionate in its share of saturated fats and sugars, such as in breads, cereals, muffins, cakes, pastries, pasta, pizza, rice, corn – very much like the North American diet – causes the pancreas to produce an overabundance of insulin, which stays in the system and puts the blood sugar level in a negative balance.”
An overproduction of insulin may also lead to hypoglycemia or low glycemia, which in turn, induces constant sugar cravings and weight gain. Insulin’s primary function is to regulate blood sugar levels however it is also the hormone that facilitates the transport of fat (triglycerides) into the fat cells. Even worse, it locks the fat in the fat cell, preventing it to be used as a source of energy. Now, because the blood sugar has dropped (and we can’t access the fat as a fuel source) it creates sugar cravings and the vicious cycle begins again.
In other words, an over abundance of insulin causes weight gain – Increased consumption of more energy-dense, nutrient-poor foods with high levels of sugar and saturated fats, combined with reduced physical activity and stress, all have contributed to where we are today.
