What if weight loss success had to do with each individual person? Scientists now believe that each individual has a genetically determined weight range. This may be why some people can fast and skip meals without losing any weight. By doing these two things the individual's weight may drop below their pre-determined body composition therefore the brain takes over and says, "No, no, no! You can't do that!"
Some scientists also believe that a person's body composition is determined in the womb. Studies have shown that women who eat little or smoke during pregnancy have children more often than not that grow into fat adults. Is it safe to say then that no matter what we do at some point we won't be able to lose any more weight, no matter what?
Every day we are bombarded with news about this diet, or that weight loss pill, or some exercise that is going to be THE cure for obesity. My question is where does it all end and what does it all mean?
Most doctors, nutritionists, and health care providers preach to us daily about keeping the excess pounds off, but do any of them really teach us how to do it? No, of course not, probably because they really dont know themselves because what they tell us is what they were taught - eat right, get plenty of rest, and exercise. Now scientists are saying, "Oh, if it was only that simple!"
Scientists agree that diet and exercise do matter, but what's also needed is to consider the body's composition dictated by DNA and monitored by the brain.Just ask yourself, "Why is it that with all the talk about fast food, poor diets, and sedentary lifestyles and the education out there to improve all three areas, America's rate of obesity is still on the rise? Could these scientists be right?
Think back to what you ate as a child or what your parents and grandparents ate. Most diets consisted of fried foods, whole milk, and desserts. But it's argued that we were also more active burning the calories we consumed. Technology was in its infancy so most work and play involved physical labor and activity. Today this isn't the case. It's just the opposite. Food may contain less fat and calories, but people are also more sedentary. Still scientists say that this myth is just a scapegoat.
Research has just begun on this theory, but one thing is for sure, if the body establishes its optimal weight before birth and the brain defends it throughout life, we are in for a rude awakening regarding maintaining a healthy weight.
