Why Diets Don’t Work in The Long Term Calories Part VII

Feb, 9th 2019 5:47 am, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

We have explored the bodys adaptation to reducing calories and weight and seen how the body acts more like a thermostat than a scale. The body acts as though it has a Body Set Weight (BSW) and strives vigorously to defend that weight against increase or decrease alike.

But how long do these adaptations last? If we maintain a certain body weight, will our body eventually recognize this as a new BSW? Certainly at first glance, this seems like a reasonable assumption. But is it true?

Reduce Energy Expenditure

Lets look at some recent studies to answer this important question.

Long-term persistence of adaptive thermogenesis in subjects who have maintained a reduced body weight by Dr. Rosenbaum et al.

In this study, 21 subjects were recruited and fed a liquid diet consisting of 45% carbohydrates over one year and the Total Energy Expenditure (TEE) were measured. As expected, during the initial weight loss phase (10% of body weight) TEE was reduced. As weight went down, the body tries to regain the weight by reducing TEE. In essence, the body is defending the BSW and trying to return to the original weight. But how long does this last?

What is interesting is that TEE is reduced over the course of the full year. Even after one year at the new, lower body weight, the TEE was still reduced by an average of almost 500 calories/day. (see figure on right)

In other words, this reduction in TEE starts almost immediately after caloric reduction and persists for a long time at least 1 year and going strong. It does not appear that this BSW has been changed at all. There is no sign that BSW has changed.

The body is still trying to get back to the original BSW. Remember that this weight loss is achieved with no change in the composition of the diet only the amount (a portion control strategy).

Lets put this into dietary terms. We start by eating 2,000 cal/day and burning 2,000 cal/day. We decide to lose some weight and reduce our calories to 1,500 cal/day. Our body almost immediately reduces TEE to 1,500 cal/day.

We lose some weight but then the weight loss stops even though we are still eating less than before. Because TEE has been reduced, we feel cold, tired, hungry and a bit miserable but we decide to stick it out thinking that things must improve. However, even after 1 year, things are exactly the same. We feel lousy and the weight is not coming off despite our best efforts to eat only 1,500 cal/day.

Finally, we think that we should go back to a normal diet 2,000 cal/day. The weight comes rushing back because now we are eating 2,000 calories/day and expending only 1,500. Sound familiar? Thought so Thats because everything Im describing here has been well described over the last 100 years!This actually starts to make a bit of sense. Suppose we are the manager of a power plant. Every day, we receive 2,000 tonnes of coal and we burn 2,000 tonnes of coal. We also maintain a supply of coal just in case we dont have enough (storage shed). Now, all of a sudden, we start getting only 1,500 tonnes of coal.

What do you imagine that we should do? If we keep on burning 2,000 tonnes of coal, we would quickly burn through our stores of coal and then our power plant would be shut down. Massive blackout over the entire city. Anarchy and looting commence.

Our boss would tell us how utterly stupid we are and say something like Your ass is FIRED! The problem, of course, is that he is entirely correct in his assessment.

Because we, as the manager of this power plant, are not that stupid would not do that. As soon as we figured out that we were only getting 1,500 tonnes of coal, we would reduce our power output to 1,500 of coal. In fact, we might use only 1,400 tonnes just in case. A few lights go out, but there is no blackout. Anarchy and looting avoided. Boss says Great job. Youre not as stupid as you look. Raises all around

Now, lets think about our body. We eat 2,000 calories/day and use 2,000 calories/day. We start a diet so now we are eating only 1,500 calories/day. What happens? Well, the body is not that stupid. It does not want to die. Why do we assume the Mother Nature is a complete moron? The very first thing we do is reduce our TEE to 1,500 calories/day and maintain that for as long as it takes.

We know for a fact that this is what happens. It has been proven over and over again. We just keep not believing it and hoping that our caloric reduction strategy somehow, this time, will work. It wont. Face it. We only believe it because the nutritional authorities keep tell us it works. It doesnt.

Mother Nature is not stupid. Thats why conventional calorie reduced diets dont work in the long term.

100% HUMAN CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN. REQUIRES MIXING BY CUSTOMER. TOP BRAND HUCOG OR EQUAL. HARD BOX SHIPPING.We all know how hard it is to diet and sometimes we even add some light exercise but it simply is not enough! Food nowadays is simply loaded with calories and everything in our society makes it so easy and convenient to abuse delicious little treat (among many things ) seemingly available everywhere you look.

So you ask yourself what else can I do? Enter the hCG diet , a naturally occurring hormone produced during pregnancy , what is does ( and for good reasons ) is signal your body to release all the stored fat directly into your blood stream ( thinking there is a baby in you feeding off that highly caloric blood )

While in fact you are not pregnant ( or even a male as it will do the same reaction in a male body )

Now all this calories in your blood ends up being wasted naturally by the usual means ( mostly by urine )

All the while your metabolic rates will go up ( so any actions such as sitting down / walking around the house will burn 3x or 4x the amount of calories you normally spend for the same actions )

As you can see this has a twofold effect for maximum efficiency

Now couple that with the recommended 500-800 calories a day diet ( and you wont fell hunger as your blood will be thick with the nutriments from the fat looking to feed a none existing baby.

We will even add a free bonus of b12 injections most user report a boost in energy levels by administrating 0.5 ml to 1ml twice per week !

And please do not take our word for it google hCG diet and go in the forums see the THOUSANDS of reviews or go to social media ( facebook&youtube among many other ) there are thousands of success stories ( we even give 20% off for anyone willing to share before & after pic + their story )

In fact chances are you know about the hCG it and were looking for a stable source of quality hCG at a decent price, well look no further friends you found it !

How to store it : the unmixed freeze dry vacuum sealed bottle of hCG you will get can be kept at room temperature away from sunlight for as long as it says on it ( see its expiration date ) however once reconstructed ( mixed with the bacteriostatic water ) it is only good for up to SIXTY days and needs to be keep refrigerated at all times

Dosage : 200iu per day is the recommended dosage , if you missed a day skip it do not double dose ( or better yet try not to skip a day ) for more info read our FAQ

Non-Invasive Weight Loss Management!

Probably 75% of people are trying to lose weight right now. Ninety percent of dieters who lose weight, no matter how its acheived, will gain the weight back in three years or less; ninety-five percent gain it back within five years. After treating thousands of patients, I know this program really works to take it off and keep it off

I developed four core treatment prongs for my program: NUTRITION, MOVEMENT, MEDICATION and MOTIVATION. Imagine yourself sitting on a table. In this position, high off the floor, you find yourself supported by four strong legs. With all four legs in place, you dont worry much about crashing to the floor. The table will remain upright. However, you can only balance on top of it if all four legs continue working.

For example, many patients say they are simply too tired to exercise. The medications solve this problem by boosting energy and metabolism, which can then be directed right into an exercise program. The exercise in turn makes the medications work much more efficiently, the results of which fire motivation. This increased confidence and motivation reinforce the desire to maintain good nutrition. The good nutrition provides natural energy, which makes exercising that much more enjoyable while the medications curb cravings for sweets and fried foods making good nutrition easy to manage. So when used together, these four legs form a powerful bond, guaranteeing success.

Obesity is a disease like asthma or diabetes. It is not caused by laziness, a lack of will power, or bad eating habits as once thought. Obesity is principally genetic in origin, inducing a chemical imbalance in the brain. It has been well documented that low levels of brain neurotransmitters (such as serotonin andnorepinephrine) are at the heart of this imbalance, distorting appetite, mood and body fat regulation.

One in three people are obese. It is the fastest growing epidemic in the United States. Indianasconcentration exceeds the national average, being recently ranked number one for obese population. This has prompted others to refer to our area as The Fat Belt. In the Indianapolis metropolitan area alone there are over 400,000 obese individuals.

Obesity has become a dangerous health issue.It is the second leading cause of preventable deathin this country, outranked only by cigarette smoking. Its been estimated that nearly 1,000 people die every day from obesity and its complications. Obesity is associated with such diseases as hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, pulmonary emboli, gallstones, arthritis, and sleep apnea.

The Obesity Epidemic – Root Causes – Intensive Dietary …

Feb, 8th 2019 10:43 am, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

The Obesity Epidemic

I grew up in Toronto, Canada in the early 1970s. My younger self would have been utterly shocked that today, obesity has become a rising, unstoppable global phenomenon. At that time, there were serious Malthusian fears that the worlds population would soon eclipse the worlds food production and we would face mass starvation. The major environmental concern was global coolingdue to the reflection of sunlight off dust particles in the air triggering the dawn of a new Ice Age. I wonder if Time Magazine thought one of the 51 things we should do is to become a penguin

Instead, some 50 years later, we find ourselves facing exactly the opposite problems. Global cooling has long ceased to be a serious concern, but global warming and melting polar ice caps dominate the news. Instead of global hunger and mass starvation, we face an obesity epidemic, unprecedented in human history.

There are many puzzling aspects to this obesity epidemic. First, what caused it? The fact that this epidemic is both global and relatively recent argues against an underlying genetic defect. Exercise as a leisure activity was largely unheard of in the 1970s. People just didnt sweat with the oldies in that decade. The proliferation of gyms, running clubs, exercise studios and the like were a product of the 1980s. I would struggle with this question for many years. People ate white bread, ice cream and Oreo cookies in the 1970s. Whole wheat pasta and bread didnt truly exist as foods real people ate. They were doing everything wrong but yet theres little obesity, as you can easily see if you were to look at old photographs from the 1970s.

Second, why were we powerless to stop this epidemic? Nobody wantedto be fat. All the best scientists, doctors and dieticians of the era were giving dietary advice to stay lean. For more than thirty years, doctors have recommended a low-fat, calorie-reduced diet as the treatment of choice for obesity. Yet the obesity epidemic accelerated. From 1985 to 2011, the prevalence of obesity in Canada has tripled, from 6 percent to 18 percent.All the available evidence shows that people were trying to cut their calories, cut their fat and exercise more. But they werent losing weight. The only logical answer is that we didnt understand the problem. Eating too much fat and too many calories wasnt the problem, so cutting the fat and calories was not the solution. So, it all comes back to that first essential question. What causes weight gain?

In the 1990s, I graduated from the University of Toronto and the University of California, Los Angeles as a physician and kidney specialist. And I must confess that I did not have the slightest interest in the treatment of obesity. Not during medical school, residency, specialty training or even during practice. But it wasnt just me. This was true for just about every physician trained in North America. Medical school taught us virtually nothing about nutrition, and even less about the treatment of obesity. There were hours and hours of lectures dedicated to the proper medications and surgery to prescribe. I was proficient in the use of hundreds of medications. I was proficient in the use of dialysis. I knew all about surgical treatments and indications. But I knew nothing about nutrition and even less about how to lose weight. This is despite the fact that the obesity epidemic was well established, and the epidemic of type 2 diabetes was following just behind, with all its health implications. Doctors just didnt care about diet.

Weight loss was not a matter of looking good in a bikini for the summer swimming season. If only. The excess weight was largely responsible for development of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, dramatically increasing the risk of heart attacks, stroke, cancer, kidney disease, blindness, amputations, and nerve damage, among other problems. This was not some peripheral topic of medicine. Obesity was at the very heart of everything, and I knew just about nothing.

I entered practice as a kidney specialist in early 2000s, and the most common cause of kidney failure, by far, was type 2 diabetes. I treated those patients exactly as I had been trained, the only way I knew how. With drugs like insulin and procedures like dialysis.

From experience, I knew that insulin would cause weight gain. Actually, everybody knew insulin caused weight gain. Patients were rightly concerned. Doctor, they say, youve always told me to lose weight. But the insulin you gave me makes me gain so much weight. How is this helpful? For a long time, I didnt have a good answer for them, because the truth was it wasnt helpful. The problem was that my patients were just not getting healthier. I was simply holding their hand as they got worse and worse. I was doing everything I was taught, but it wasnt doing any good. Gradually, it dawned on me what the problem was.

The root cause of the entire problem was the weight. Obesity caused metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes, which caused all the other problems. Yet everything I was taught, almost the entire system of modern medicine, with its pharmacopeia, with its nanotechnology, with all the genetic wizardry was focused myopically on the problems at the end.

Nobody was treating the root cause. If you treat the kidney disease, patients are still left with obesity, type 2 diabetes and every other complication. This was the way that I, and virtually every other doctor was trained to practice medicine. But it was not working. We needed to treat obesity.We were trying to treat the problems caused by obesity rather than obesity itself.

When people lost weight their type 2 diabetes would also reverse course. Treating the root cause is the only logical solution. If your car is leaking oil, the solution is not to buy more oil and mops to clean the spills. The logical solution is to find the leak and fix it. As a medical profession, we were guilty of blithely ignoring the leak.

If you could treat the obesity at the beginning, then type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome could not develop. You could NOT develop diabetic kidney disease if you didnt have diabetes. You couldnt develop diabetic nerve damage if you didnt have diabetes. It seems obvious in retrospect.

The problem was that I didnt know how to treat the obesity. Despite having worked more than twenty years in medicine, I found that my own nutritional knowledge was rudimentary, at best. This sparked a decade long odyssey and eventually led me to establish the Intensive Dietary Management (IDM) program and the Toronto Metabolic Clinic.

In thinking seriously about the treatment of obesity, there was one singularly important question to understand. What causes weight gain? What is the root cause? The reason we never think about this crucial question is that we already think we know the answer. We think that eating too many calories causes obesity. If this were true, then the solution to weight loss is simple. Eat fewer calories.

But weve done that already. Ad nauseam. For the last 50 years, the only weight loss ever given out was to cut your calories and exercise more. This is the highly ineffective strategy called Eat Less, Move More. Weve added calorie counts to food labels. We have calorie counting books. We have calorie counting apps. We have calorie counters on our exercise machines. Weve done everything humanly possible to count calories so that we could cut them. Did it work? Did those pounds melt like a snowman in July? No. It sure sounds like it should work. But the empiric evidence, plain as a mole on the tip of your nose, is that it does notwork.

From a human physiology standpoint, the entire calorie story collapses like a house of cards. The body does not measure calories because it has no calorie sensors. The body does not respond to calories. There are no calorie receptors on cell surfaces. It has no ability to know how many calories you are or are not eating. If your body doesnt count calories, why should you? Calories is purely a unit of energy borrowed from physics. The field of obesity medicine, desperate for some simple measure of food energy, completely ignored human physiology and turned to physics instead.

So, we got the saying A calorie is a calorie. But thats not a question I can recall anybody ever asking. Instead, the question is Are all calories of food energy equally fattening?, to which the answer is an emphatic no. One hundred calories of kale salad is not as equally fattening as one hundred calories of candy. One hundred calories of beans is not equally as fattening as one hundred calories of white bread and jam. But for the last 50 years, we pretended they were equally fattening.

And so I started from the beginning. Unravelling the rotten tapestry of the Calories model to answer that all-important question of the underlying causes of weight gain was the reason I wrote The Obesity Code. Since then, in my Intensive Dietary Management program ( treated thousands of patients over the last 5 years. Ive wondered sometimes about why such a simple concept about using free dietary measures like fasting to treat dietary diseases runs into such obstacles. Here is the traditional medical system.

Here is how the modern medical system fares if people could use diet to control their own health and destiny. Reversing type 2 diabetes, as I explored in The Diabetes Code, is really very simple, and does not involve using expensive medicines or surgeries.

Ah, now I see why dietary treatments fail to gain any traction.

Lose 20 Pounds in 2 Weeks Safely in a Healthy Way!

Feb, 8th 2019 10:40 am, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

Does it sound astonishing to lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks? Well, most of us will deny the fact and tell that it may lead to several side effects and is not good for health and so on and so forth. However, the truth is we can actually lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks by following a proper diet routine along with exercise.

These days all of us want to be healthy and fit. Excess weight may lead to several diseases which may impact our health to a great extent. Hence it is important to start early and get the benefits in the long run. Moreover, each one of us likes to be slim and have a toned body. It makes you feel better from inside and your confidence reflects outside.

The question that keeps coming to our mind all the time is how can I lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks? Is it really possible or it is just a hoax? Then why not try out some of the diet and regime present in our next section

It is the most important element to lose weight fast. Shedding off the extra calories is not an easy task and you need work out really hard.

Exercise is important because it not only burns the excess calories but keeps your heart healthy and assists the blood circulation in the body.

In todays world, we all love packed and junk food. No matter we just stand in the street and feed ourselves with junk food while happily gossiping with friends. Junk foods are one of the main reasons for putting on weight. Prefer eating more of home food and if your cravings are very high then go for outside food 2-3 times in a month. However, it is an absolute no to junks when you want to lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks time.

The main idea behind refraining junk food is that it contains more of poly-saturated fats which is difficult for the body to melt. They keep accumulating in the body. These are bad fat and can do more harm than good. Always try to eat fresh things like fresh vegetables, fruits, juices, curd, milk etc. Avoid canned and packed foods and drinks.

Hydration is very important for the body. Drink lot of water preferably 8-10 glasses of water daily. Water boosts up the body metabolism and is an important component in the weight loss cycle. Along with water, you can also opt for fresh juices without sugar, skimmed milk, Green tea and black coffee as they will increase your stamina and you can perform vigorous workouts.

Dont roll your eyes. Eating frequently is important when you need to lose weight. However, eat healthily. Consuming fruits several times in a day can do more good to your body. Try to eat foods which are negative in calories such as cucumber, watermelon, strawberry, grapefruit etc. Drink vegetable soups several times in a day, opt for tender coconut and eat small meals every 4 hours to keep you full. Do not feed on deeply fried food and sweet dishes. Eating sugary substance is not allowed in the 2 weeks regime.

Losing 20 pounds in 2 weeks time is no joke. You need to sacrifice some of the foods and white carbs are definitely a big NO. Foods like potato, white bread and rice are strictly not entertained during the 2 weeks time. The reason being, body derives its energy from carbohydrates. Eating carbohydrates will generate sufficient energy in the body. Hence, in turn the fat will remain intact. The primary objective of the 2 weeks weight loss program is to burn the excess fat deposited in the body. Hence, no carbohydrates allowed.

People who love non-vegetarian food need to take care that they refrain eating mutton and pork during the weight loss program. The good news for non-vegetarians is that they can eat fish and chicken. Fish like Salmon, Sardines contain essential oils which are required by the body. It also curbs the cravings to a great extent. Lean protein is essential for the body and hence you can eat chicken during this time. However so not eat deeply fried fish and chicken. Always cook using less oil for more health benefits.

In the next section, we will discuss the 2-week diet to lose 20 pounds.

The first golden rule in weight loss program is never skipping your breakfast. Your breakfast is the key diet to lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks. The various options you can try in breakfast are:-

You can alternate the above-mentioned items and follow the same for two weeks.

Eating a perfect meal during the daytime is definitely advantageous to shed off excess calories.

Dinner should always be taken before 9 pm in the night. Eating late and sleeping results in bloating and weight gain. Hence it is always essential to eat early which improves digestion and increased the metabolic rate of the body.

It is better to have a light dinner Eat two chapattis along with veggies and salad.

In between meals are equally important and essential. Keep a fruit of your choice or prepare a sandwich with brown bread and some vegetables. You can munch on nuts, fruits, sandwiches or drink fresh fruit juice and soups to curb your appetite.

Strictly following this weight program will definitely help to lose weight. Also, you need to have self-control and control your cravings. You need to make commitments to follow a strict exercise schedule, maintain appropriate timings. In addition to the above diet, it is always better to drink at least 1-2 glasses of warm water. Drinking lemon water along with honey in the empty stomach can increase body metabolism.

We all want to have a great body to look great. Hence we should be equally committed to maintaining ourselves and focus on the food that we intake. Having s strict regime and a schedule for ourselves will definitely help to achieve our target. It is obvious that you cannot observe the change in a day. Over a period of time, you will start feeling good about yourself and people will admire you for your dedication.

Peak Human LongevityAbility/Power:

To have an extended, yet non-superhuman lifespan compared to normal members of your species.

“A General!? You liar!! How the hell can some little kid like you be a General?! You’re quite rude to keep calling me a brat. Even if I look like this, I’m in my 30s, you know.” Shin and Rin Ko (Kingdom Vol.19)

Individuals with this ability are at the peak of human conditioning. For this very reason,they age slower than normal members of their species due to having extremely healthy cells, without to the superhuman level. In addition, this power would activate when the user is in his/her young-adult years and they’d looktwenty-years to even a hundred times younger. For example, in Captain America’s state, even though he was frozen in the ice for nearly seventy-years, Steve still had the vitality and appearance of a man in his physical prime and completely cannot age.

If users that are enhanced were to “super-charge” this ability, then they would achieve the superhuman version of this ability (the user could gain immortality if the augmentation is powerful enough), meaning that users can live over thousands years old without any signs of aging. Finally, for users that have not been enhanced could live up to 150-200 years since this ability is at peak-human level.

Uzumaki Clan (Naruto) members are born with large life energy, granting them extra longevity.

Nausea during pregnancy: A good thing? – Mayo Clinic

Feb, 7th 2019 1:42 am, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

Is nausea during pregnancy a good sign?Answer From Yvonne Butler Tobah, M.D.

It’s not clear if nausea during pregnancy, also called morning sickness, is a good sign.

The cause of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy is currently unknown. Studies have suggested that nausea and vomiting in pregnancy might be due to hormones, evolutionary adaptation or psychological causes. A recent study of more than 2,400 pregnant women associated nausea and vomiting during the first trimester with a reduced risk of early pregnancy loss particularly for women age 30 and older. However, this finding has not been proved in all cases.

What’s the possible connection between nausea and vomiting during pregnancy and a reduced risk of pregnancy loss? Shortly after a fertilized egg attaches to your uterine lining, your body begins producing the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). HCG has been linked to nausea and vomitingwomen with severe morning sickness (hyperemesis gravidarum) have higher HCG levels than other pregnant women. Women pregnant with multiples, who are more likely to experience morning sickness, also have higher HCG levels.

Similarly, estrogen, another hormone that increases during pregnancy, is associated with an increased frequency of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. It’s possible that nausea and vomiting during pregnancy might indicate that you’re experiencing the normal climb in pregnancy hormones needed for a healthy pregnancy. However, high pregnancy hormone levels aren’t consistently associated with nausea and vomiting.

Keep in mind that a lack of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy isn’t cause for concern. Some women with healthy pregnancies never experience morning sickness.

Track 11: Endocrinology Disordersand Treatment

Endocrine disorder that resultswhen a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone, called a hormoneimbalance. The endocrine system is a network of glands that produce andrelease hormones that help control many important body functions, including thebody’s ability to change calories into energy that powers cells andorgans. The endocrine system influences how heart beats, how bones andtissues grow, even ability to make a baby. It plays a vital role in whether ornot develops diabetes, thyroid disease, growth disorders, sexual dysfunction,and a host of other hormone-related disorders.

Each gland of the endocrinesystem releases specific hormones into bloodstream. These hormones travelthrough blood to other cells and help control or coordinate many bodyprocesses.

Islet cells in the pancreas


Pineal gland

Pituitary gland
