Is Obesity Caused by Too Much Insulin?

Is Obesity Caused by Too Much Insulin? – Dr. Ted Naiman4.8 out of 5 stars5 star86%4 star9%3 star3%2 star0%1 star0%61 ratings6125:27


Is obesity mainly caused by the fat storing hormone insulin? And if so, why do many people still not agree at all?

As the dogma of Calories In, Calories Out is becoming more and more outdated, people like Dr. Ted Naiman sees tremendous results doing the opposite: Stop counting calories.

So what should you be doing if you want to lose weight? Dr. Naiman has the answer: Focus on lowering your insulin levels. And he shares the most effective ways to do it (low carb is just one of several important things).

As a practicing physician, Dr. Ted Naiman helps people find strategies that actually work and ways to improve your insulin sensitivity. In our interview, he explains what to do if you want to lose weight.

The Failure of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign

90

It seems like Michelle Obama’s ambitious “Let’s move” campaign is a failure. Childhood obesity is not being solved, and it’s clear why.

A focus on exercise before getting rid of added sugars is pretty much doomed to fail. Not even kids can outrun a bad diet.

Here’s a short summary of the problem followed by a very ambitious feature:

Dunk the Junk: The Failure of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign

Politico: The Great FLOTUS Food Fight

Eventually we’re simply going to have to accept that a focus on calories and exercise is not going to solve this problem, because it’s not caused by calories or a lack of exercise.

The obesity epidemic is caused by poor food quality (primarily too much sugar and refined carbs) and likely the only way to solve it is to improve food quality.

Update: For example, banning real whole milk and instead serving massively sugar-sweetened low-fat chocolate milk is not an improvement. It’s a crime against our children.

Exercise in Futility

In the United States people are exercising more and more – and still people’s weight keeps going up. It’s not a strange fact. Exercise is simply not an effective way to lose weight, as this new infographic explains:
