By the way, it is believed that too much food makes people obese.
But overeating is not the main cause of obesity, but people’s dietary choices play the most important role in this regard.
This was revealed in a new medical study in the United States.
Obesity increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer.
The study, conducted by Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, looked at why people become obese and found that the choice of substandard foods and processed carbohydrates cause obesity.
The researcher also suggested the insulin model while explaining the causes of obesity.
He said that the current energy balance model could not explain the reasons for weight gain.
He said that the daily caloric intake in boyhood can reach one thousand, but does overeating cause obesity?
The new model proposed by the researchers attributes obesity to modern-day dietary choices that consume more foods that contain processed and highly digestible carbohydrates.
He said that these foods cause hormonal reactions and change the metabolism, which leads to the accumulation of fat in the body, and this results in weight gain and obesity.
The researchers added that when we eat too much processed carbohydrates, the body’s insulin secretion increases, and glucose secretion is suppressed, which signals fat cells to store more calories, muscle, and the calories available for metabolically active tissues are greatly reduced.
According to research, when the body does not get the right amount of energy, the brain responds by increasing the feeling of hunger, trying to save the fuel needed by the body to function slows down the metabolism, which even after eating, the feeling of hunger increases, even if the body accumulates excess fat.
The researchers said that a small amount of food does not reduce body weight on a long-term basis. The Carbohydrate-Insulin model suggests focusing more on what we eat.
“Choosing low-fat and healthy foods instead of fast-digesting carbohydrates reduces body fat storage, which leads to weight loss and reduced appetite,” he said.
The results of the study were published in the medical journal American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
