Obesity puts your life in Danger

Stroke, heart disease, diabetes, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, high blood fat levels, gallstones, kidney and colon cancer, arthritis and peripheral vascular diseases are only few example of obesity-related  health risks. Obesity in fact is a major health concern mainly because it can dramatically increase

your risk of developing other serious disorders.

Obesity is an excessively high proportion of body fat. The distribution of body fat is determined by several factors, including genetic and hormonal. During your first consultation, by anthropometric measures we are able to determine your obesity status and the exact location and quality of your body fat. The anatomical disposition of the fat in your body indeed says more about the grade of your obesity and the type of risk you present.

More important than your weight on a scale is the percentage of body fat.     

For healthy women, fat can account Lose fat? No Problem, Eat More!

for as much as 25% of body weight; 17% is a healthy percentage for men. The gender difference is because women’s bodies are designed to carry

a higher proportion of fat tissue to ensure plenty of fuel for pregnancy

and nursing even if food is scarce.

The average human body  has 30-40 billion fat cells. Most calories you eat that aren't needed for immediate energy are stored as fat inside of fat cells. Even if you have a low-fat diet, in certain physiological conditions carbohydrates and proteins can be metabolically transformed into fat. Also, a low-carb diet doesn’t help to fight the fat; instead, it makes the brain unable to use the right fuel and use the “last choice” called ketone bodies.

Much can be done through an appropriate personalized diet, but it’s very important to consult an expert who knows the metabolism pathways.   

Losing weight in a short term is very dangerous for your health. In fact, most toxins in your body are confined in fatty tissue, so during weight loss with the release of fatty acids in the bloodstream we have the concomitant release of toxins free to go throughout your body and cross prohibited areas such as the blood-brain barrier, interfering with all biological functions in your body. Additionally, the mobilization of fat from stored areas and its metabolism interfere with the fundamental daily functions of the liver and kidneys.

Many studies suggest how chronically-elevated concentrations of free fatty acids (FFAs) contribute to the development of Type 2 diabetes (1). They have been found to negatively influence both insulin action and insulin release. FFAs can induce a state of insulin resistance (5) and impair pancreatic B-cell function (6-9).
