30 Bananas a Day!

I thought this was sad...found on a raw food forum, someone comes along with a health concern and wondering if all the fat is healthy and many telling them in response to eat lots of fat, and even limit fruit.

The problem is that simple observations either contradict or contravene the "calories in equals calories out" dictum so often heard. The quality of calories is a factor in human metabolism, all calories are not equal.

In order for the body to store fat it must receive certain hormonal signals, it must be "told" to do so. Carbohydrates drive insulin which drives fat storage, it is a well understood metabolic pathway. Carbohydrates also drive hunger, which is physiochemical in addition to being neurological. Rate of metabolism is also programmed by the quality of calories. Higher fat diets lead to higher metabolism versus the lower metabolism that the genes tend to express on a lower fat diet.

The more fat you consume the less hungry you will be, and unless you have a serious genetic disorder, consumption of adequate fat will act to inhibit the consumption of excess calories.

It is all perfectly logical, unless you consider biochemistry to be illogical.

Thats why Alissa still struggles with her weight. I dont mean to sound shallow but this is a discussion about fat and carbs and judging by Alissa's latest book cover, she surely aint getting most of her calories from fruit or rice. Its not like Alissa is a newbie either.

 

 

Harley, that site is where I initially found you, and a bit later on down the road, 811. Once I found out about 811 and NH, it wasn't long before I became banned from the forum, following in your footsteps. Haha.

LOL. The person who wrote that is a master manipulator.
