Is the statement 'you are fat because you eat too much' true?
To some extent yes, but it is not the whole truth. Over-eating is the result of the obesity disorder, not its cause. The tendency to accumulate excess fat is a definite metabolic disorder.
There are 2 kinds of body fat:
- structural fat – between the organs
- normal reserve fuel – stored all over the body and available for nutritional emergency
- 'white' adipose fat – unavailable source of energy until other types of fat is burned first
An obese patient who tries to reduce weight by dieting will first lose normal fat reserves. When these are exhausted he begins to burn up structural fat. Only as a last resort will the body give up abnormal 'white' adipose reserves.
Apart from feeling famished, tired and irritable, the dieter loses the 'wrong fat'. He will feel weak and hungry, may be drawn in the face and in the absence of tangible results in the places that count, he just gives up. The ensuing binge frequently results in more weight gained than had been temporarily lost.
This is not the case with the Skinny World Program which guarantees to target your 'white' adipose or hard to get rid of fat – without even exercising.
