How Did You Get So Fat?

I now know how I got so damn big…but the question is…do you know why you are so fat?

Why can’t you control yourself when it comes to food? Have ever asked yourself that question?

What was the answer?

You don’t really know do you?

I bet you have some sort of belief but you don’t know for sure.

Now I am not saying I know everything about you but you are a Yankee…I blog for Yankees and if you live in America we have something in common when it comes to food.

In America…processed foods is KING.

For the sake of argument the scientific term used by scientist to describe processed junk foods is hyper palatable foods.

Hyper-palatable foods is the e reason of why you got fat and I can prove it.

What are hyper-palatable foods?

They are processed foods that are loaded with tons fake trans fat, high fructose corn sugar , salt and they are also very low in fiber.

They are the bullshit foods that are dominant in American culture.

What I want you to understand about these foods is that they are very dangerous and they are very toxic to the body. They are more dangerous than you emotionally understand.

You just thinks its junk food but its poison!!!

You are supposed to be scared of eating these foods because they wreck havoc on the biochemical processes in the body and they make you very greedy.

These foods also make your body look fucked up.

I want you to understand that what I am saying to you is very real…so I cut and pasted an article on here from Web MD…to back me up.

Please read it because then you will understand exactly!!! why you became so damn fat. If you know your enemy then you can beat him…so thats why you should understand this.

The Cause of Compulsive Overeating and How to Stop It

A former FDA commissioner explains why people overeat — and how to end poor eating habits.

Does the ice cream in the freezer keep calling your name? Can’t resist a jumbo bucket of popcorn at the movies?

Powerful forces you don’t recognize may be driving you to overeat, according to a new book by former FDA Commissioner David Kessler, MD. The culprits: fat, salt, sugar, and brain chemistry.

Kessler stops short of calling Americans’ love for sugary, fatty foods a “food addiction.” But he believes there are similarities between why some people abuse drugs and why some of us can’t resist every last deep-fried chip on a heaped plate of cheese-smothered nachos.

Knowing what’s driving our overeating behavior is the first step to changing it, he says.

“For some, its alcohol,” Kessler tells WebMD. “For some, it’s drugs. For some, it’s gambling. For many of us, it’s food.”

Kessler, a Harvard-trained pediatrician and medical school professor at the University of California, San Francisco, started researching what would become The End of Overeating after watching an overweight woman talk about obsessive eating habits on The Oprah Winfrey Show. It sounded familiar. Kessler’s own weight has zoomed up and down over the years, leaving him with suits of every size.

“For much of my life, sugar, fat, and salt held remarkable sway over my behavior,” he writes.

And so the man who tackled tobacco companies while leading the FDA started researching why he couldn’t turn down a chocolate chip cookie. He pored over studies on taste preferences, eating habits, and brain activity, conducted studies, and talked to food industry insiders, scientists, and people who struggled with overeating.

His theory: “Hyperpalatable” foods — those loaded with fat, sugar, and salt — stimulate the senses and provide a reward that leads many people to eat more to repeat the experience.

“I think the evidence is emerging, and the body of evidence is pretty significant,” Kessler says.

He calls it conditioned hypereating, and here’s how he says it works.

When someone consumes a sugary, fatty food they enjoy, it stimulates endorphins, chemicals in the brain that signal a pleasurable experience. Those chemicals stimulate us to eat more of that type of food — and also calm us down and make us feel good.

The brain also releases dopamine, which motivates us to pursue more of that food. And cues steer us back to it, too: the sight of the food, a road lined with familiar restaurants, perhaps a vending machine that sells a favorite candy bar. The food becomes a habit. We don’t realize why we’re eating it and why we can’t control our appetite for it.

Once the food becomes a habit, it may not offer the same satisfaction. We look for foods higher in fat and sugar to bring back the thrill.

Kessler points to these factors as the cause of a dramatic spike in the number of overweight Americans in the past three decades.

Kessler allows that his theory of how biology drives overeating doesn’t apply to everyone. He estimates that 70 million Americans are susceptible. Others, he says, don’t respond to food stimuli in the same way, something that scientists haven’t been able to explain.

Taking Control of Your Eating Habits
Kessler believes conditioned hypereaters can take back control. Instead of simply going on a diet, conditioned hypereaters need to change the way they approach food, he says.

Here are some of his tips:

• Structure your eating — knowing when and how you’re going to eat. That plan helps you avoid the situations or foods that trigger overeating and establishes new eating patterns to replace destructive ones.

• Set rules, such as not eating between meals. If you know you’re not going to eat something, he says, your brain won’t be as stimulated to steer you to that food.

• Change the way you think about food. Instead of looking at a huge plate of french fries and thinking about how good it will make you feel, he advises saying that it’s twice as much food as you need, and will make you feel bad. “Once you know you’re being stimulated and bombarded,” Kessler says, “you can take steps to protect yourself.”

• Learn to enjoy the foods you can control.

• Rehearse how you’ll respond to cues that set you up to overeat.
