Key Ideas

The "chubby kid"

From young, many chubby kids get the message early on that they're fat.
The message gets spread through concerned adults when they ask the child to wear something a bit more flattering, while thinner peers are congratulated with looking "just darling."

A transformation

A strict diet and determination can transform the body into a thinner self. However, the mind struggles to follow the transformation. The perfect weight becomes the measurement for success, and any deviation from it feels like failure.

Beauty

Beauty is not restricted to certain types of women at all. You don't need to be thin to find love.

Women should not feel that their bodies are tied to the perfect body of other women.

Weight anxiety

These days, weight anxiety is expressed through the buzzword of "health," so it won't be seen as judging themselves or others.

Although it is possible to accept being not thin, some feel that they will never be cured of self-judgment and remain susceptible to re-infection when they come in contact with a thin person.

Diets and Health

For half a century, doctors and researchers have known two things that could have improved, or saved, millions of lives:

About Diets

  • A 2016 study that followed participants for an average of 19 years found that unfit skinny people were twice as likely to get diabetes as fat people, who were relatively fit.
  • Americans spend more on dieting every year than on video games or movies.

The Ketogenesis process

It supplies energy under circumstances such as fasting or caloric restriction to certain organs (e.g. the brain, heart, and skeletal muscle).

In ketogenesis, our livers start to break down fat into a usable energy source called ketones. Ketones can stand in for glucose as fuel for the body when there’s a glucose shortage. 

Once ketogenesis kicks in and ketone levels are elevated, the body is in a state called “ketosis,” during which it’s burning stored fat. 

The Keto diet

It is a very low-carb, high-fat diet. People on a ketogenic diet get 5 percent of their calories from carbohydrates, about 15 percent from protein, and 80 percent from fat. It’s this ratio that will force the body to derive much of its energy from ketones. 

That means eating mainly meats, eggs, cheese, fish, nuts, butter, oils, and vegetables while avoiding sugar, bread and other grains, beans, and even fruit.

People struggle to keep weight off

Researchers have observed weight regain following weight loss across a range of populations and types of weight-loss diets.

Why long-term weight loss is so hard

The brain’s response to caloric restriction tends to be to increase cravings for foods that are highly rewarding and reducing our perception of being full. 

Diets frequently fail because they have an endpoint and are not a real lifestyle change. Maintaining a lifestyle that promotes a healthy weight and metabolism is often a lifelong journey. 

Maintaining weight loss

The actual food you eat isn’t the main thing that enables you to keep weight off.

Maintaining a weight-reduced state is a lifelong journey and many dietary approaches can work to facilitate weight loss and keep it off.
