Why Junk Food Makes You Fat, NOT Fat or Carbs
The true causes of obesity are complicated and diverse.
There is no single thing that causes it… various factors contribute, both internal (our biology) and external (our environment).
Not only that, but the combination of contributing factors may vary greatly between individuals. What causes obesity in one person may have no effect on another.
Modern obesity research is increasingly pointing to the brain playing a dominant role in the way our energy (fat) stores are regulated.
In the video above, Dr. Stephan Guyenet, an obesity researcher and one of my all-time favorite bloggers, explains how the brain is supposed to regulate energy balance… and why it’s currently NOT working.
He makes a compelling case for the brain, specifically the “reward” centers and an area called the hypothalamus, being among the key players in obesity.
If you’re interested in nutrition, health and the causes of obesity, then I highly recommend that you watch this video.
This is a critical piece of the puzzle to understand why some foods, but not others, make people fat.
