We need a balance between 3 interconnected systems, the hormone system (endocrine), the nervous system and the digestive system.
Which Factors Influence These Three Systems?
Body composition (% muscle, fat)
Exercise (type and duration)
Physical contact (hugs etc)
Music and movies you watch
Liver and digestive functions
Heavy metals and toxins
Nutrition – when you eat, how much, and in what combinations
The Men Who Made Us Fat
High Fructose corn syrup was championed by Richard Nixon as a use of excess corn grown by farmers. Cheaper and sweeter than sugar it interferes leptin (a satiety hormone). So once we start eating or drinking it, we don’t know when to stop.
Meanwhile US congress blamed fat, not sugar for the disturbing rise in cardiovascular disease and the food industry responded with ranges of “low fat, heart healthy” products in which the fat was removed, but the substitute was yet more sugar!
