I have been trying to understand this weight thing the fast 10 years, I used to be lighter when I was in the military , but now the weight seems to hang no matter how hard I train.
I think I have found the problem.
One of the Health Forums thats moderated by a Dr Mercola, talks about Human Metbolism and eating habits.
He believes that Humans are designed for breif periods of fasts due to environmental
problems as humans evolved over the Centuries.
One problem is we tend to eat a little to much food late in the day.
Our Big meal should be breakfast and Lunch and a Light supper.
And thats It no food or snack till 7 am the next day.
This allows time for normal biological function to occur.
We will actually release a hormone called leptin during the night to help remove any extra weight that may have occured if we snack this release insulin and may prevent the actual release of Leptin.
AS we gain extra weight we become more insulin resistant this can lead to higher blood sugars which can increase weight gain.
Once your really large its very hard to break the cycle of calorie storage.
I have been trying to stop eating at 5 pm and fast till 7 am after a few days its easy.
And I don't seem hungry after a week of effort.
Try to fast every night and you may see a gradual melting of stored weight after a few weeks.
Avoid all sugar free products when reducing weight they may trigger the same insulin levels that seen with sugar and may make you more hungrey than sugar.
