Man is what he eats!


In order to understand the mechanism of development of obesity, and even more so to identify ways to treat this disease, you should understand the simplest "basics" of nutrition. What foods we eat every day, how they are transformed in our body and are involved in metabolism. The importance of the right combination of foodstuffs is mentioned in the famous source of Tibetan medicine "Zhud-shi", Avicen, William Howard Hay and many others wrote about this.
I fully admit that you already have a general idea about this, but, as my experience shows, this knowledge is sometimes superficial and not always true. Obesity cannot be cured without the help and support of the patient. Obesity cannot be cured without active cooperation and understanding between the doctor and the patient. And if so, then to achieve a good effect, it is simply necessary that you understand what you will do and why. The doctor cannot walk this road instead of you, he can only tell you the right way!
I would like you to think about how we live, what we eat, what is the origin of our food, their properties and composition. Only by presenting these basics can one build a new concept of changing one’s lifestyle so that each of you can be surprised and rejoice at the results. Therefore, if we miss this important topic, it will be more difficult for you to understand the whole mechanism of the development of this disease. Or, in scientific terms, pathogenesis.
All foods that we eat are usually divided into two large groups - micro and macronutrients.
Micronutrients include vitamins and minerals that are in food in very small quantities. They are not sources of energy, but quite recently it became clear how great their role in metabolism is. They are directly involved in the assimilation of other nutrients and in the regulation of all vital functions of life and development of the body.
Macronutrients include proteins, fats and carbohydrates that are familiar to us before the pain. When oxidized, they release energy to perform various functions of the body, and also serve as building material for various cellular structures.

All the food we eat gets into the digestive tract and is digested in it, that is, it is transformed to such a state that it can be freely absorbed and supplied to the organs and tissues in need of blood flow. It is transformed in the digestive tract under the influence of many factors, the main of which are the secretory activity of the glands of the stomach, intestines, pancreas, and liver. That is, simply put, a piece of meat eaten by you cannot be sucked into the blood and swim there in the form of small meat pieces. In the process of digestion, under the action of enzymes, this very meat (food protein) is broken down to amino acids, fats to fatty acids and glycerin, and digestible carbohydrates to glucose, fructose and galactose. Then, in this form, they are absorbed into the blood. Moreover, water, pure glucose, fructose and some other substances are absorbed directly, without digestion.
I will say right away that you don’t have to “fill your head” by memorizing all these terms. I would gladly refuse to use them at all, but then it will be a completely “childish” booklet, where everything will have to be explained literally on the fingers. The main thing you need to understand is the mechanism. How nutrients enter the body and what happens to them. Knowing the principles frees you from knowing the facts!
Food is an indispensable source of energy, and its main suppliers are fats and carbohydrates, and in case of their inadequate consumption - proteins. During oxidation in the body, 1 g of fat is released 9 kcal of energy, 1 g of carbohydrates - 4 kcal, 1 g of protein - 4 kcal. Moreover, with simultaneous entry into the body at first, carbohydrates are used to cover energy needs and only then - fats and proteins. The human body is designed in such a way that it first consumes carbohydrates, and fats, whenever possible, always tries to set aside.

Man is what he eats!

  1. You eat what you eat
    Today, the incidence of two hormone-related forms of cancer, the breast and prostate, is growing rapidly, and thyroid disorders have taken the scale of the epidemic, experts point to phthalates as one of their causes. Food toxicity has another aspect. Standard diet of a modern person with a large amount of refined grains and sugars and processed foods
  2. WE ARE WHAT WE EAT
    The main source of chemical exposure to our body is the food with which we come into the closest contact. Food is important for any living organism, but people perceive it on a completely different level than any other organism. Our whole life revolves around food. We celebrate and mourn by consuming food. Many people celebrate the most significant events of their lives at the table, in a circle
  3. What works is supposed to eat
    The reserves intended for use during fasting are assimilated with greater ease and less stress on the body as compared with the consumption of food undergoing the difficult process of assimilation. Dr. Jennings explained: “The moment concerning the vessels of the lymphatic system deserves special attention and reminders. For some health problems when the digestive apparatus is removed
  4. Currently, I have a friend with whom we have been meeting for a year, and I am ready to commit myself to maintaining relations with him on a long-term basis. But he says he is not ready, that he is afraid to make a commitment.
    You say we reap what we sow. Why does this happen to me, because I am the type of woman who easily makes a commitment? Moreover, this is not the first time for me. And it was difficult for other people to make a commitment to me. You have to ask yourself the following question: what motivates me to want so much to make a commitment? Maybe you this
  5. When I openly tell my husband about how I relate to some of his actions, he listens to me, and then calmly replies that no one has the right to interfere in his personal life, that he is what he is and cannot change.
    He believes that I should not take everything so close to my heart and that I should take care of my well-being myself. How should I be in this situation? Your husband, of course, is right in one thing: this is his personal life and he is not obliged to report to anyone except himself. On the other hand, I cannot agree with his statement that he cannot change. Each person can change for the better if
  6. If you hurt something, it does not mean that you are a bad person.
    When you managed to create a mask so as not to suffer, it was a heroic act, a feat of love for yourself. This mask helped you survive and adapt to the family environment that you chose before you incarnate. The real reason for our birth in a particular family or our attraction to people with the same trauma as ours is that from the very beginning we like it when others
  7. CHOOSING IS ALWAYS OR EVERYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT STERILIZATION BUT WAS AFRAID TO ASK
    Olga Korotonozhkina is an expert AB RUI, the cat veterinarian is very prolific. In 8 - 10 months, she can already bring the first offspring. Two, three and even four times a year she is able to give birth to kittens, an average of five in each litter. A year later, the younger generation is also included in the process of procreation. American scientists have calculated that one cat and all its offspring in seven years can produce
  8. My sister has breast cancer, already has metastases. She was treated by the healer, went to prayer sessions, etc. At the present time she says that she gives herself into the hands of GOD and gradually prepares for death. She has two children, nine and fifteen years old. What can I do as a sister?
    Your sister seems to have already made her choice. If she made a decision, then it is important that you respect him. However, I see that you want to come to her aid, because it is difficult for you to accept her death. It is important for you to clarify what is difficult for you to accept. What do you experience in your soul? The next time you go to her, share your doubts with her, tell her that you have great difficulty in believing in
  9. I am a responsible person, and I believe that my shoulders are too heavy a burden. What to do to not feel guilty when I can not cope with all the tasks?
    Is the severity that you feel the result of having taken on too many commitments? Have you committed yourself to yourself or to another person? Perhaps you feel responsible for the happiness of others? If the latter assumption is most likely, then in this book you will find the true definition of responsibility. If you took on too much
  10. Do you think the philosophy of life you preach is the best way to help spouses who have problems?
    How can you confirm this? I completely trust this philosophy of life, otherwise I would not allow myself to preach it. I myself have been using it in practice with my second spouse for nine years now and I can rightfully say that I observe positive results every day. Compared with the first marriage, which lasted fifteen years, the difference is enormous! Happiness that i
  11. What happens to a person if he is guilty, but does not give himself the report and does not consider himself guilty? Will he be punished? Will he reap what he has sown?
    Laws apply to everyone, regardless of whether we believe in them or not. For example, if someone drives through a red light and tells the policeman that he doesn’t know the law or that he doesn’t believe in it, this jigit will still have a fine. The situation is the same with spiritual laws - the law of karma or the law of cause and effect. If a person knows that he is breaking the law, and yet deliberately
  12. What is a man?
    Man is a brightly colored energy system, full of dynamic aspirations. Like any energy system, he always tries to come to rest. He has to do it. For this energy also serves; its mysterious function is to restore its own balance. The person is designed in such a way that, in any internal or external occurrence, sooner or later must
  13. What does a man need?
    At every moment, if there is no interference, a person is inclined to behave in such a way as to remove the strongest of his tensions, if possible, by satisfying the most cherished of his desires. Every satisfied desire brings him closer to his goal - to the feeling of peace and security, or to freedom from anxiety. Anxiety is a sign of stress; it decreases when the energy is restored
  14. How should one behave with a sick person who uses his illness in order to endear himself? I feel helpless because I want to help this man, but he does not believe in anything.
    The previous answer extends to this question. Why does a person often feel the need to help others without thinking that it can harm another? A person who decides to help someone, not thinking about what he can do, thinks only about himself. He needs someone's positive result to feel their own significance. Therefore he
  15. My husband has a panicky fear of being out of money. And this is despite the fact that he and I have a permanent job. What to do and what to say?
    Have you tried to just talk to him about what is bothering him? You asked him if he had any questions about this, did he think about it? Was his father afraid of losing money? If so, what did your husband, as a child, feel when you saw this fear of your father? He condemned the father? When we condemn our parents, we eventually become the same as they. It would be good to give
  16. How to explain to a person you previously needed, that now you can do without him, but that while he did not feel rejected?
    First, you need to check whether this person really feels rejected, or are you afraid that he will feel rejected. This fear of rejection may actually exist only in your imagination. Just tell him that you thank him for all the help he has given you, but that now you feel yourself firmly on your feet to do
