3(+1) Factors to Accelerate °»Intestinal Starvation°…



£Ī°•Unbalanced food and irregular rhythm can cause intestinal starvation

  I’ve said that what increases your Base Weight is the hunger (intestinal starvation) and here, I want to talk about 3(+1) factors that accelerate intestinal starvation.

°ŕRelated article°Ř→My Definition of “Intestinal Starvation”

(In Japan,) The reason for becoming obese are often said

°¶unbalanced food

°¶too much carbohydrate/ fat

°¶eat late at night

°¶don’t eat breakfast

°¶irregular rhythm

°¶lack of vegetable


  But with only one factor, intestinal starvation mechanism hardly occurs and when 3(+1) factors exist, it happens more often.

The 3 factors are as follows;

(1) unbalanced food(too much carbohydrate and some protein)

(2) power to digest (stomach acid, digestive enzyme etc.)

(3) time you stay hungry till next meal

  Some say they gained weight with too much carbohydrate but others won’t gain weight even they eat the same thing. Some say they got fat eating too late at night but others won’t.
  These differences exist since “intestinal starvation” is decided by composition of various factors.

Explanation of (1)

  Meal with too much carbohydrate (starch) and protein (small amount is enough) and less fiber such as vegetables makes people obese most easily. Less dietary fat, more body fat you become (* it’s because fat is not easy to digest).
  It doesn’t depend on the “amount” of calories you take but the “quality” of food you take so you might gain weight even if you eat only little.


Explanation of (2)

  Those with strong stomach and high digestive ability tends to create intestinal starvation more rapidly than those with slow digestion.
  This is because it doesn’t depend on the amount of food intake but the process of digestion in whole intestine. It differs by each person and those who are nervous, have gastric ptosis or weak stomach might not be able to even create starvation mechanism.


Explanation of (3)

  When we say we put on weight because of eating late at night, not taking breakfast or irregular rhythm, it means the problem is the time span between meals. In other words, tolerating hunger for a long time.
  Eating late at night won’t automatically makes you obese but if you take some snack before, you can avoid starvation mechanism.


£≤°•The important other factor, what is “+1”?

  I said that the important factor other than 3 factors is “+1” but this is whether you had a light meal in previous meal or the meal before that.

  For example, you take light meal of “hamburger and coffee” for lunch and you can’t eat until 9 o’clock that night. If you have taken heavy breakfast with dairy, salad, seaweed, beans or butter, you won’t have starvation mechanism. (attention: it depends on person)



   The reason for this is that the intestine is long as 7 to 8 m so it take the food more than 10 hours to pass through. Intestinal starvation is decided as the whole intestine so “previous meal or the meal before that” also affect it.


  It’s often said that “eating 3 well-balanced meal won’t make you obese” but this points out the other side of the above explanation (well-balanced food makes hard for starvation mechanism to happen).
