......it's the carbs (I think)So, per my early morning stroll around the land of mythology, I came across this gem on another board....http://boards.fool.com/a-calorie-isnt-a-calorie-low-carbers-...A calorie isn't a calorie - low carbers have a thermogenic advantage. "Thus, it is clear .....to whom....one might ask??..... that insulin plays an important role in obesity, independent of energy intake." http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/83/6/1442.full For the skeptics/critical thinkers/True Believers/carb phobics etc, scroll down to the bottom of the link provided...The *author* had no conflict of interest to declare.I guess he forgot about this one..http://www.manninen.info/shop/and....http://www.manninen.info/blog/Per the first para. of his letter to the AJCN, though...When Galileo claimed the world went around the sun, he was forbidden by the Pope to continue such “heretical teaching.” Writing to Copernicus, Galileo said, “They will not even look in my telescope.” ....at least, Galileo was "advertising" in English.
L S M F T Latin for "They will not even look at my telescope".... right, sano?
I must have extra fat receptor cells :)TB
I must have extra fat receptor cells :)You probably do, TB.Anyone who's been significantly overweight for a significant amount of time has more fat cells than someone who's always been lean.The thinking used to be that new adipocytes were only laid down during childhood but anyone can grow new ones at any time in their life if they overeat consistently. One of the lecturers at a course I took a few years ago used the analogy of putting more and more stuff in your garage until it's full and then building more and more garages to house more and more "stuff". Problem is, fat cells aren't inert like your garage(s) They don't disapper as you slim down but respond to being "emptied" by pumping out all sort of adipokines, peptides, hormones and whatnot that, not only scream "feed me!!!", but can serve to regulate fat deposition independantly of insulin.
