"2 meanings of the word 'gaining weight"

  In my previous article "2 meanings of the word 'gaining weight' ", I said that your Base Weight increases by starvation mechanism (strictly speaking, "intestinal starvation")... I would like to explain it simply.

  Of course, in order to gain weight, you need nutrition such as carbohydrate, protein or fat but it’s what happens later on...because there is a "time lag" between emergence of the cause of gaining weight and actually gaining weight by eating. What I mention here as “starvation” is different from situation like you can’t eat over few days.



° £Ī°ňIt happens when you eat and your stomach is working

° £≤°ňIt refers to the situation between meals (like between breakfast and supper or lunch and late supper etc.) where all substance in the stomach (in all intestine of 6 to 7m) has been digested.

° £≥°ňIt’s different from simple “hunger” in that
°¶there is no fiber or fat at all (or something close to it)
   Ę®This is why the refined carbohydrate makes you fat
°¶basically everything including water is digested

  In the way of evolution, human stored nutrition inside bone/muscle/fat in order to prepare for starvation.This is because they didn’t know when they could eat the next time.


  Getting fat should be the mechanism of the body trying to store the nutrition. Then this mechanism of storing nutrition should work strongly with those who won’t eat a lot.
  However, in this era with too many food, it seems like those who eat a lot become obese and those won’t eat much are thin and this leads to misunderstanding.

  There is a reason for this (it’s a theory based on my personal experience). The question here is "by what our body recognize starvation ?" "Starvation" is not decided by the "amount" of how much we’ve eaten but rather how the digesting process in intestine proceeded.

  That is to say, even if you eat a lot of mainly carbohydrate and tolerate hunger for hours, you will be near “starvation” situation.
  On the other hand, even if you eat a little, if you eat well balanced food with fiber in vegetable/dairy/fat every 4 to 5 hours, then your body won’t recognize you are in "starvation". When there is some indigested substance in your stomach, your body recognizes as "there is still food". In other words, your stomach (intestine) decides everything.


  Our ancestors long time ago had nut, meat or root vegetable and then had nothing after that for a day but their body didn’t recognized as "starvation".

  On the other hand, our body recognize us in "starvation" only within a half-day. It depends largely on the "quality" of food where we eat a lot of refined carbohydrate, easy-to-digest meat, well cooked vegetables etc.
