Reality Works Opposite of What and How We Think

This time, I would like to explain the relationship between the mind and the mechanism of gaining weight.

Many of those who are overweight or obese want to diet to lose weight. For that, they try to avoid high calorie foods such as oily foods, deep-fried foods, cookies or cakes. Also,
they try to skip meals or eat just a little in order to take in fewer calories or exercise to consume calories.

On the other hand, people who are thin think, "If I skip a meal, I will get thinner.” So they try not to skip meals and try to eat more high-calorie foods  even if they can’t eat a lot.

Then why is it that obese people can’t lose weight even though they reduce caloric intake, but exercise? And why can’t thin people gain weight even though they eat a lot of calories?

It is possible that they are doing the opposite of what is really needed.

Reality works opposite of what and how we think

Obese people might get thinner for a while by decomposing protein/fat through food restriction or exercise.

However, it’s a temporary thing and over the long haul, it’s not that effective. By restricting meals as in a diet, the intestines improve their absorbing ability in order to get the maximum absorption out of a small amount of food. If they don’t eat a balanced diet and their diet leans toward some carbohydrates and proteins, the intestinal starvation mechanism may occur.
As a result, the base weight value I defined will go up and they’ll find themselves gaining more weight. (The rebound effect).

Most of the diets which people have done so far were either of these two types(meal restriction or exercise).

So, it is natural that the success rate of dieting is low, since they are dieting in the wrong way. It’s not because their efforts were not enough.

(Note: Of course, if you don’t eat anything and exercise, you will lose a lot of weight, but I don’t recommend it. Because if you don’t have any worthy nutrition in your stomach when you are working out, the body will catabolize muscle and take minerals out of bone.)

Also, when thin people skip meals, they soon start to get thinner in the face and get tired easily since they don’t have energy. So they believe they have to eat something even though they don’t feel so hungry. This is a natural way of thinking for creatures to live...

And that’s why many thin people tend to eat three meals a day and also eat high-calorie foods even if they don’t eat a lot. Some people eat snacks between meals without hesitation. There are specialists and some websites that recommend they eat more calories to gain weight.

But by doing so, intestinal starvation doesn’t occur, and the function of the body to store fat will not work. They eat a lot of calories but they never gain weight, so they end up saying, “It’s my body’s character.”

Generally, if a body doesn’t gain weight, genetics are used as an excuse, but since they are doing the opposite of the theory above, it is normal that they don’t gain weight.
