The Price You Pay For An Extra 10 Kilograms!
We usually think of fat as an unsightly nuisance. When we are carrying too much weight, we hate the way we look in a bathing suit, or we get upset because our clothes do not fit right. But we seldom think of the health consequences of excess weight.
Those consequences can be substantial, even if you are only slightly overweight. According to the North American Association for the Study of Obesity, gaining just 20 pounds (10 kilograms) in adulthood doubles your risk of diabetes and more than doubles your risk of high blood pressure.
Fat Cells Don’t Just Sit There
For a long time, we believed that body fat was relatively inert and metabolically inactive. We now know that this idea is wrong. Fat cells actively produce a number of biologically active substances. These include hormones that help regulate your metabolism. They also include molecules that cause inflammation.
Researchers at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Centre and The University of Texas Health Science Centre at Houston recently discovered that fat cells actively produce C-reactive protein (CRP), a substance highly correlated with inflammation and an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.
The Most Dangerous Fat
Fat that is stored in your abdomen and packed around your organs is the most dangerous. In 2007, researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis discovered a link between this so-called visceral fat and chronic inflammation.
The Hormonal Secret to Permanent Fat Loss
Their study, published in the journal Diabetes, showed that abdominal fat strongly contributes to systemic inflammation and dysfunctional blood sugar metabolism.
So don’t be fooled into thinking that 20 or 30 pounds of flab won’t hurt you. The leaner you are, the better you will look… and the longer you will be able to enjoy your health.
