Study: Overeating does not always cause weight gain Medicine and...


Research published by Oxford University said that overeating does not always cause weight gain.

The research attributed the cause of the “obesity epidemic” to processed carbohydrates, which drive hormones to wreak havoc on a large scale.

According to the team of researchers led by David Ludwig, an endocrinologist at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, binge eating is not the real problem, but the real cause is “modern eating patterns characterized by excessive consumption of foods that cause high blood sugar, especially fast processed carbohydrates.” digestion”.

Foods and drinks that cause high blood sugar include: sweetened beverages, french fries, white pasta, white rice, baked potatoes and cereal.

“These foods trigger a hormonal response that fundamentally alters metabolism and causes fat loss, weight gain and obesity,” the team told the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

“In order to understand the obesity epidemic, we must look not only at the amount of food we eat, but also at the way the food we eat affects our hormones and metabolism,” the research team added.

But the team acknowledged that it is easy for people to overeat, especially since “today’s sedentary lifestyles” can contribute to weight gain.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in America, obesity affects more than 40 percent of adults in the country, which the researchers said means that they are “at greater risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer.”
