Break your overeating habits with Better Health Now
“We don’t get fat because we overeat; we overeat because we get fat.”
Have you ever finished your lunch or dinner, only to find yourself hungry again shortly after? Or, perhaps found yourself continuing to eat despite feeling full? These are both common appetite-regulating experiences shared by many, especially after consuming high-carb, insulin-spiking foods. You overeat because excessive sugar in the blood (in the form of carbohydrates), disrupts insulin levels and hormone function; appetite-regulating hormones being one of them. With so many individuals stuck in this overeating cycle – due to appetite disruption – gaining wait is inevitable. The only way to break the overeating cycle is to break your addiction to unhealthy carbohydrates and sugar.
Carbohydrates and your hormones
With sugar constantly traveling through our blood, wreaking havoc on our hormones, breaking free can seem almost inconceivable. Gary Taubes, author of Why We Get Fat, wrote “We don’t get fat because we overeat; we overeat because we are getting fat.” Meaning we’re overeating to feed a body who believes it’s starved, but is actually quite well, if not overly fed. Insulin spikes, due to sugar and carbohydrate consumption, throw your body and hormones completely off balance. Instead of using already stored fat for energy, it demands more food, and so the cycle goes.
FAT STORES ARE LOCKED UP
Your body is full of fat stores that can and should be used for energy, yet they are inaccessible. Hormone communication is disrupted and locks fat into your cells because it’s in starvation mode. How many times have you yourself said, “I’m starving?” So, what do you do? Eat more. The carbs you consume will fill you up and provide you with some short term energy, but once the sugar levels in your blood begin to drop, you’ll need to feed your body more sugar!
