Aspartame

 

Aspartame is a dangerous chemical that is included in almost every diet drink, it is not your friend and it is highly addictive. What does it do to the body?

 

Epidemiologists from the School of Medicine at The University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio reported data showing that diet soft drink consumption is associated with increased waist circumference in humans, and a second study that found aspartame raised fasting glucose (blood sugar) in diabetes-prone mice.

“Data from this and other prospective studies suggest that the promotion of diet sodas and artificial sweeteners as healthy alternatives may be ill-advised,” said Helen P. Hazuda, Ph.D., professor and chief of the Division of Clinical Epidemiology in the School of Medicine. “They may be free of calories but not of consequences.”

Can’t stop eating? here’s why

Dieting wrong will cause you to eat more

Dieting wrong will cause you to eat more

Why can’t I stop eating, the control of the appetite is rooted in the brain. It may amazing people when they learn that the keep to appetite control is not in the stomach but in the brain. The stomach is involved in digestion but when we feel hungry we often think that it is the stomach that is calling for food but it is a brain signal. There has been a worldwide increase in food addictions, those who simply can’t stop eating are often at a loss as to why the have this problem.

 

The Chemistry of the Appetite

 

When you are really hungry the body starts a series of biological functions that signal you that you need something to eat, this is why when you forget to eat( for example at work) you will feel the grumbling in the stomach, it is necessary function and healthy for survival. When the body and brain are working in perfect harmony the brain sends the hunger signal at the appropriate times to save you from starvation. There are millions of people in whom this perfect brain/body balance is not working in the right way, those who can’t stop eating have a system balance that is slightly off, the signal that you are hungry may fire more often than it should. Sometimes this signal fires to snack (when you are not hungry) because it releases feel good hormones to fight stress.

 

Stress Markers

 

Emotional stresses such as from a bad relationship,job,divorce, dieting, or abuses(prior and current) all disrupt this very delicate balance in the brain. This is why children who have suffered physical,mental or verbal abuses are 10 times more likely to develop a problem with their appetite. A stressful job or even deep depression can disrupt brain hormone balances of leptin and insulin can cause you to want something to snack, it is important to understand that will power and dieting can actually makes this worst by creating more stresses.. Dieting should not be ignored but those who can’t stop eating will not be helped with a regular diet. A diet for food addiction or appetite control can only be controlled by a diet created for this problem, we are speaking of a diet that addresses the emotional and dieting problem.

I am Dieting but so hungry: What to do about this

How to stop the pain

How to stop the pain

“Dieting but so hungry” is a situation that many find themselves in and there is a scientific explanation as to why you have this problem. Once you get familiar with how hunger works you will be well on your way to reversing this problem. The area of the brain that controls appetite (hypothalamus and the hippocampus )are involved in hunger. If you are dieting but still so hungry (or just starting a new diet) this article will try to help you understand the process.

 

There are brain neurons that are involved with appetite, there are also hormones like insulin and leptin which can help you control hunger, when the body is operating perfectly(rarely) we have no trouble controlling our appetite but this is not the case when on a diet. When you diet there is a complex system of hormones and brain neurons that all interact and the bottom line is you stay famished. Diets do not work in over 80% of people because they are based on the false premise of “just lowering carbs, calories or sugar”, this will eventually lead to the “dieting but so hungry” feeling that we all get.

 

When you can diet and still keep your hormones balanced you do not get hunger pains This is why the a diet in Europe works for so many, it was created for diabetics but it is now the number one European diet for people without diabetes

The pain and irritation of dieting

 

‘If you diet and lose fat, your leptin levels drop and that is like switching on an alarm in the brain,’ says Professor O’Rahilly professor of clinical biochemistry and medicine at Cambridge University

‘The brain then makes you feel hungry, signaling that you must find food and consume calories immediately”

 

The pain and irritation starts in your brain not in your stomach, that hunger feeling is caused by the brain triggering the release of a hormone called ghrelin, as we can see there is a complex working of hormones and brain chemistry when trying to stop a food addiction or simply trying to diet. Diets cause hormones to go crazy and this is why so many people fail, this is why will power is also a completely failure. You may stop eating for a while but the diet will eventually fail.

 

The good news

 

There right way to lose weight with a diet created for food addictions, this diet is based on science to eliminates hunger pain and the dieting but so hungry feeling.

How to break sugar addiction

Only a diet created for Sugar addiction can stop this craving

Only a diet created for Sugar addiction can stop this craving

Sugar addiction is not reversed with will power, do not let anyone fool you into thinking that this problem can be solved with the “I think I can” approach. This site has shown thousands that the true causes of being sugar addicted (or food) is related to the brain. This is supported by tons of neurological studies. When you learn the secret you will see how to break a sugar addiction. It is also important to understand that much of your failed efforts to stop eating is not your fault according to brain researchers..

The brain wants what the brain wants

Brain changes can cause addictions, this is not something that is easily reversed, the changes in the brain can start from childhood or adulthood. Emotional stresses are the triggers that create the majority of food addictions. The lack of understanding of this fact has caused countless of thousands to feel ashamed at their lack of will power. Those who have a difficulty controlling the appetite are often hardest on themselves, it may seem like an area in their lives where they have no control. You may be super successful as a mom, dad, student or business person but you still cannot get a handle on the food problem. How to break a sugar addiction? First we must start in the brain, this sweetener is powerfully addictive, it is as strong as cocaine according to European researchers.

       Magalie Lenoir, Fuschia Serre, Lauriane Cantin, Serge H. Ahmed

University Bordeaux 2, Université Bordeaux 1, CNRS, UMR 5227, Bordeaux, France

In a recent study rats were given a choice between sugar water and cocaine, and 94% them chose sugar. Even the rats that had previously been addicted to cocaine switched to the sugar once it was a choice.

Both the sugar and cocaine were found to be highly addictive, both activated a section of the brain that caused them to become addicted. Can will power stop a cocaine user? No, it cannot, so why should will power be able to a sugar addiction?

This is why dieting has been a failure for so many, just counting calories or trying to use will power is no match for the brain. You can want to eat less or stop eating a certain food but this is no comparison to the brain desires. Studies show that over 85% of diets are a complete failure, it is not your fault. We have shown that only a diet created for food addictions can stop overeating. This diet has now been used in 7 countries to stop overeating or break sugar addiction.

What to do about Antidepressant weight gain

The link between Depression Drugs and Weight gain

The link between Depression Drugs and Weight gain

Those who suffer from Depression are usually prescribed anti depressants, weight gain is one of the unfortunate side effects of taking medication for a depressed mental condition. The numbers of people in the United States on medications for depression are over 30 million, one of the major set backs from taking these pills is weight gain, anti depressants are known to cause a tremendous amount of increased body weight.

 

Sarah 24

 

Sarah was prescribed the anti depressant Zoloft and gained over 30 pounds in less than one year, the majority of drugs for depression are called serotonin up lifters. These drugs are necessary for people who live with depression. The drugs can be the difference between functioning on a daily basis or not, there are many who cannot get through the day without these pills. Clinical depression is a very serious illness, many are not able to work or do very ordinary tasks. The question is what to do about the weight gain from anti depressants, is there a way to address the illness of depression without the negative effects of the pills? Medications for depression work on the brain and they cause the body to hold fat.

 

A review published in 2003 in the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine stated that while weight gain is a possible side effect with SSRI antidepressant drugs, it may be more likely to occur after six months or more of use

 

There are many theories as to why the pills cause weight gain, this occurs even in those who are not eating more. Science has no direct answer as to why this side effect occurs but one thing is sure and that is it is not good. The use of anti depressants and weight gain is something you should be very concerned about. The Food addiction diet was shown to cause weight loss in people on depression medication

I can’t control my appetite: Here’s why

A typical diet does not stop the brain signal  that makes you keep eating

A typical diet does not stop the brain signal that makes you keep eating

Susan says “ I can’t control my appetite”, she is one of the millions of people who have tried diet and exercise but still cannot limit how much they eat. There are many reasons for this condition but science shows that the brain is most responsible for the problem of overeating, The deep root causes of eating too much can be explained. I can’t control my appetite, it is is a growing National problem that has many seeking a solution.

 

Turning off the brain response

 

The brain is responsible for how much you eat, it signals you to feel full and stop eating. Obesity is a national dilemma and the problem is showing no signs of slowing down, the Center of Disease (CDC) stated last week t that more people are dieting but they are seeing less results. People are eating less calories but the weight is still not coming off. This is something we have addressed on this site for a long time, calorie counting will not lead to more weight loss. Only a diet created for people who have a problem controlling how much they eat will work. “I can’t control my appetite”, what this means is the brain hippocampus is not working properly and you will continue to over eat. This is why dieting fails, it does not address the root causes of overeating.

 

Emotional triggers

 

Divorce, break up and a loss of a loved one can all alter brain hippocampus function and cause uncontrolled appetite. Childhood events and stress also set the brain up for food addiction. The failure of the popular diets can be attributed to the fact that they have adopted a cookie cutter style to dieting, one size fits all and this does not work. “ I can’t control mu appetite” this statement alone should tell us that a typical diet will not work for an over-eater, a diet for overeating must be based on real brain research to reverse the problem

I Hate my Body: 7 year old’s and the media

I hate my body is a common complaint from women but what is more scary is that there are girls as young as 7 are expression growing dissatisfaction with their bodies. What this tells us is that the media has a growing influence on female body image. As the obesity crisis continues it is causing more depression among women trying to meet a certain body image. “I hate my body” can mean a future eating disorder is near.

Girls and how they few their bodies

 

A Swedish study by Birgitta Edlund, Klara Halvarsson, Per-Olow Sjödén found that girls as young as 7 were dieting and were extremely concerned with body image. Although these girls were found to be average weight almost 30% of them were “dieting to lose weight” Being healthy is fine but when 7 year old’s are already getting a distorted image of themselves we have a problem. Many of these little girls are on the road to overeating, the stress from trying to maintain an unrealistic body image leads to brain changes that create overeating. “I hate my body” is becoming a common response when women are asked to describe their bodies.

 

Fat ?

 

A Study conducted amongst teen boys age 15-18 in 2008 found that Marilyn Monroe was described as “Fat” by the boys. The picture in the study was every teens boy’s dream in the 1950’s but was not acceptable today. When asked why they thought she was fat most compared her to waif like models of today. Unrealistic body images create food addictions, emotional stresses cause overeating and when women cannot meet the image that is being pumped in their heads from media on a daily, overeating can occur.

 

I hate my body

 

Men contribute to low self esteem in women by reinforcing the preference of the childlike girl over the grown woman. Increasingly men are being influenced to prefer the thin teen body over the grown woman. It is important for women to understand that most overeating is caused by emotional stress which are not controlled by will power.
