Processed foods are making us gain weight much faster than the same equal calories of natural foods. To lose weight, one must eat natural food!
Surprisingly! - Processed foods are making us gain weight much faster than the same equal calories of natural foods.
The portion of food dedicated to tissue regeneration varies depending on the body's requirements and diet quality and quantity. The rest is converted into energy and fat and influences body weight. Surprisingly! - Processed foods make us gain weight much faster than the same equal calories of natural foods. Not all calories are equal.
When you refuel your car, you know how much energy you will get (driving range). When a person eats and drinks, some food (by analogy) enters the oil tank and is intended for maintenance - but the proportions change! Thus, all caloric calculations are inaccurate.
The negative calorie idea with a completely new Interpretation.
- The idea that negative calories exist is not new and usually refers to foods that the digestion requires more calories than the food carries. My Hypothesis is entirely different.
- The new trend for slimming by testing intestinal bacteria and adapting foods accordingly is based on similar principles of improved absorption of nutrients suitable for tissue regeneration and long-term maintenance. (Without a comprehensive theory to explain how it works.)
Every food and beverage has two options for routing within the digestive system.
- To become available energy for immediate exploitation. (Or fat storage.) "Counted as calories."
- To be used for building tissues & long-term maintenance. "Not counted as calories."
The nutrients we eat & the calories they carry cannot disappear, but they can be redirected to other non-energy purposes. The digestive routing process is significant for our overall health, appearance, and maintaining our body's optimal weight.
Quantitative illustration of caloric routing. (Simple, realistic example.)
Suppose a woman eats, in both cases, the same 2,000 calories a day, only in a completely different composition:
- A varied menu containing only natural organic food.
- Only Industrialized and highly processed food and beverages.
Industrialized and processed foods are often not suitable for tissue regeneration but only for energy production.
- In this example, industrialized foods generate more calories in 5% of daily intake than natural and non-processed foods as fewer nutrients are routed to tissue regeneration.
The 100-calorie gap (5 percent of 2000 calories a day) can accumulate as excess fat (equivalent to 12.5 grams of fat a day of about 375 grams a month and 4.5 kilograms a year! With a much faster-aging process. (Due to slow tissue regeneration.)
