  • I figured it out!!!

    I figured out why crappy food makes us gain weight! Since we wouldn't have eaten these things naturally while we had real food, it signals our body that we're in the middle of a famine!!!!
    We're basically giving our body the queue that we're out of food when we eat this stuff!!!!

    Thoughts?
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    In a famine, or actively poisoning ourselves.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

      I've read in a few (not scientifically-reputable) places that the body sends hunger signals when it receives inadequate nutrients, not just when there is a caloric deficit. So, 3000 calories of junk - zero nutrients = body still thinks it's hungry.

      That being said, my inner grammar nazi cannot resist:
      - cue: a signal
      - queue: a line-up (from the French word for "tail")

        Grumpy: People in La Rochelle ate their boots during one of the sieges. During times of famine people will eat things normally considered inedible, therefore it is reasonable to think that the body could come to equate the ingestion of inedible substances with a lack of nourishing fare.
        Unchatenfrance: Yeah, I had 3 hours of sleep this morning so it's impressive that I came up with a thought in the first place.

          All the carbs get swept into at cells and none goes to muscle and supporting cell functions, so yes, the body is starving.

            Hmm. Yeah, that sounds pretty reasonable.

              Interesting theory - one of those things that makes such good sense that it's hard to argue down. True or not???

                I don't know, if anyone finds studies on this then let me know. So far it's in the theory stage and I don't have the money to fund an experiment.

                  I did read it in one of my books, I'll try to find the source. The way they stated it was " you eat because you're fat" rather than "you're fat because you eat. "

                    Okay so to confirm this we would need the fasting and fed enzyme levels and metabolic rates of both primal eaters and SADers.
                    We would then need to compare the two sets.

                    If I'm correct then then the difference between fasting and fed states would be larger for the primal group. The problem is the fasting numbers would need to be taken after several days of fasting to simulate an actual famine. Any volunteers?

                      From Robert Lustig, a slightly different angle:
                      RL: Insulin's job is to make you store fat, by shifting energy, or calories [in the form of glucose and fatty acids], from the blood into adipose [fat] tissue. Whatever you don't burn, you have to store. When insulin goes up, you store fat and the more insulin goes up, the more fat you store. When your fat cells get larger, that is supposed to raise your level of another hormone called leptin, which in turn activates the sympathetic nervous system to burn it off. But, apparently that's not happening in obese people because insulin does another thing as well--and this is where my research comes in. We have found that too much insulin actually blocks the leptin signal at the level of the brain. Your brain thinks you're starving all the time. You feel crappy, you certainly don't want to exercise, and it drives you to eat more.
