This time, I would like to explain the relationship between “mind” and “mechanism of getting fat”.
Many of those who think they are fat want to do diet and get thinner. For that, they try to skip meals or eat just little in order to take “less calories” or "do some exercise to consume calories".
On the other hand, people who are thin think that “if I skip a meal I will get thinner”. So they try to eat “with more calories” and “not to skip meal even if I can’t eat a lot”.
Then why fat people can’t get thinner even though they reduce meal and do exercise? Why thin people can’t get fat even though they eat?
It is possible that they are doing the opposite...
“The reality works on the opposite of one’s mind”
Fat people might get thinner for a while by decomposing protein/ fat through food restriction or exercise. However, it’s a temporary thing and in a long span, it’s not that effective. By restricting meal as a diet, stomach improves its absorbing ability in order to get maximum out of small amount of food. As a result, the hunger mechanism occurs in which the body tries to store fat meaning becoming easier to get fat (rebound).
Most of the diet been done so far was either of these two (meal restriction, exercise).
So it is natural that success rate of diet is low since they are doing the opposite of the theory. It’s not because their effort was not enough.
(Note: Of course, if you don’t eat at all and do exercise, you will get thinner but I don’t recommend it. Because if you don’t have any nutrition in your stomach when absorbing ability is improved, the body will take minerals out of muscle and bone.)
Also, when thin people skip meal, they soon start to get thinner from face and get more often tired since they don’t have energy. So they believe they have to eat even though they don’t feel so hungry. This is a natural way of thinking for creatures to live...
So, they tend to take 3 meals a day and also take some snack between meals. There are professionals and websites who recommend them to take snacks to get fat. But by doing so, the function of the body to store the fat based on “hunger mechanism” will disappear. They take a lot of calories but they don’t get fat so they end up saying “it’s my body’s character”.
Generally, body that won’t get fat is said to be “genetic” but since they are doing the opposite of the theory, it is normal that they don’t get fat.
