When we take excess calories during X, our body stores that excess

We are already in the first month of the year, and for many it is a symbol of two things:

The cost of the famous month of January is to spend a lot of our money on gifts, picnics and other things.
Half of our clothes squeeze us and see in the mirror that Michelin was hiding.
As my knowledge of the economy is zero, we will focus on the second point, which has a solution easier and faster than the first point.

First, I would like to divide people into two groups, the group (a) that people who raised the proportion of fat that are obese or obese at an early stage of their life and a group B, where people enjoy of relatively good health. Weight throughout his life.

Why do I do this chapter? The answer is easy, and the lipid tissue for both is different. To understand this, you must know something fundamental about physiology:

When we take excess calories during X, our body stores that excess in lipid cells (adipose tissue cells). When these are full and can no longer be provided, new lipid cells are created to continue storage. These new cells will never disappear throughout our lives, which is why people who are obese in their lives have regained weight easier. This fact that I comment has a great importance since it oscillates between 30-64% of those that ate. More weight loss than loss (1).

However, if you have gained a few kilograms in these weeks, you can rest easy, you will lose it faster than you can think of. Our body tends to remain at a constant weight can be pivoted by 10%, so that a person who weighs 70 kg of their body can adequately respond to the rise / fall of 7 kg, this response percentage varies completely. This is known as a point.


Functions of the lipid cell, the cell that many people commit to say that only “stores fat”

This phenomenon is due to the fact that our brain usually has a “perfect” weight as a reference, which is usually the weight we have for long periods of time. It should not be this weight necessarily “healthy” weight, in which you can weigh 120 kg and that your body thinks healthy weight (the case of the obese), so when they begin to reduce fat, they will begin their body at the launch of a series of mechanisms to return to this weight. This phenomenon is known as SET-POINT.

Set point

Where I want to go, if you have gained “Y” kilos during these weeks, your body will barely maintain this weight gain if it returned to normal as your metabolism proceeds quickly than normal, which burns more calories than the rest of the Christmas holidays I started.

We will put in a position, which had to have a surplus of calories in these weeks, since the singer was the star mainly carbohydrates (satrap, polvorones, nougat, chocolate truffles, sugared almonds, etc …).

In the first days, your glycogen reserves are filled to the top and your body will increase the levels of thyroid hormone (T3) (2). This increase in T3 as mentioned above, the speed of your metabolism to get your cells to oxidize more carbohydrates and fats, at least, (the reason why the increase in carbohydrates in 24 hours does not increase our reserves of fat, so we can say that there is a surplus is not storage of carbohydrates At night as fat).

As you can see in Study 2, “In these overweight studies of normal weight volunteers, it is necessary to increase the calories to maintain the weight gained.” What does this mean? The weight that Nkisabh these days has to be greater than the consumption of calories to maintain itself, or what is the same, and keep the same calories that we have done in the Christmas holidays, a situation that obviously will not happen if we go back to our usual diet.

In the event that excess in the form of fat, something very possible, the gain of fat will be much higher than carbohydrates. As we can see in Study 4, they were given more than 50% of calories in the form of fat or in the form of carbohydrates to stimulate weight gain for 14 days.

The result was:


As we can see, the greatest weight gain occurred in the first days, while the weeks of weight gain decreased (as discussed above). It should be noted that 75-85% of carbohydrates stored as fat during those weeks, while fat is stored in 90-95%, so we can say that excess fat is greater than hydrates carbon stored easily. This is one of my tests that commented that insulin is not the cause of obesity, since there are others accused as ASP who are also responsible for storing fat. As I always say, in matters of weight gain or obesity
