[2 meanings of the phrase 'gaining weight']

  In my previous article "2 meanings of the phrase 'gaining weight' ", I said that your Base Weight increases by the 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 carbohydrates, protein or fat however it’s what happens later on...because there is a "time lag" between emergence of the cause of gaining weight and the actually gaining of weight by eating. What I mention here as “starvation” is different from the situation like when you don't eat over a few days.

<Definition>

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

£≤°•It refers to the situation between meals (like between breakfast and supper or lunch and late supper etc.) where all substance in the intestines of 7 to 8m has been digested.

£≥°•It’s different from simple “hunger” in that,
°°a) /there is no fiber or fat at all (or anything close to it)
   Ę®This is why the refined carbohydrates make you fat

°°b) /basically everything including water is digested


  In the way of evolution, human stored nutrition inside bone/ muscle/ fat in order to prepare for cases of 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 an abundance of food, it seems like those who eat a lot are obese and those that don't eat much are thin and this tends to lead to a misunderstanding.

  There is a reason for this. It’s a theory based on my personal experience. The question here is, "In what way does our body perceive 'starvation' ?" "Starvation" is not decided by the "amount" of how much we’ve eaten, but rather how the digesting process in the intestines proceeded.

  That is to say, even if you eat a lot and mainly carbohydrates and experiencing hunger for hours, you will be near a “starvation” situation.

  On the other hand, even if you eat a little, if you eat a well balanced diet with fiber including vegetable/ dairy/ fat every 5 to 6 hours, then your body won’t perceive you as being in "starvation". When there are some indigested substances in your intestines, your body perceives it as "there is still food". In other words, your intestines decide everything.

  Our ancestors a long time ago had nuts, meat or root vegetables and then they had nothing after that for a day, but their bodies didn’t perceive it as "starvation".

  On the other hand, our current bodies perceive us in "starvation" only within a half-day. It depends largely on the "quality and balance" of food ,and if we eat a lot of refined carbohydrate, easy-to-digest meat, or well cooked vegetables etc.
