The mechanism of fat accumulation and weight gain

Hi Richie, l found your blog through Dr. Sam Hassan. Anyway, l have read in Prevention Magazine about the storage of fat in the body.  So my question is, can you explain to me the mechanism of fat accumulation and weight gain?

Dr. Hassan is a great friend that I always take pride in his friendship. Tim, you know what? Everyone has fat. It’s crucial that you pay attention to what l am going to tell you about how can you control your body the easy way. When you understand the mechanism of fat accumulation and weight gain, you will be able to control your weight easily, without the restrictions and bodily harm caused by unbalanced diets. Your body will accumulate fat when the total energy factor assimilated from food consumption, exceeds the amount of energy expenditure in every day living. When food intake is high in carbohydrates, which are very readily available and absorbed from the intestinal tract, a rapid rise in the blood sugar will happen. Insulin is then released into the blood stream to assist in the utilization of the sugar consumed. If too much sugar is consumed for a long period of time, it’s possible you may get diabetes which is a very serious problems in which half of my relatives have. The glucose which is not used for energy will be converted and stored as glycogen by Mr. Liver. The glycogen is then stored in the muscles and the liver itself.

When the body has need for energy, this substance is then converted to glucose. If there is an excess of glucose that the liver and muscles cannot handle, or will not store, it will be converted to fat, which then elevates the blood-fat level (Cholesterol-triglycerides) and eventually causes weight gain. Bear in mind that fats have more than twice as much energy potential “Calories” as protein and carbohydrates (affectionately referred to as carbs): 9 calories per fat gram versus 4 calories per gram for proteins and carbs. Some of the body fat made from food fat is visible. Even though your skin covers it, you can see the fat in the adipose (fatty) tissue in female breasts, hips, thighs, buttocks, and belly or male abdomen and shoulders. This visible body fat provides a source of stored energy, gives shape to your body, cushions your skin (imagine sitting in your chair for a while as you enjoy your visit to usadiamondnutrition.com without your buttocks to pillow your bones), and acts as an insulation blanket that reduces heat loss.

Other body fat is invisible. You can’t see this body fat because it’s tucked away in and around your internal organs. This hidden fat is part of every cell membrane (the outer skin that holds each cell together). A component of myelin, the fatty material that sheathes nerve cells and makes it possible for them to fire the electrical messages that enable you to think, see, speak, move, and perform the multitude of tasks natural to a living body; brain tissue is also is rich in fat.  Invisible fat can also serve as a shock absorber that protects your organs (as much as possible) if you fall or are injured.

What’s really makes me want to scream loudly “NO”  are these nutritionists who say  carbohydrates provide a protein spare action, in other word if you don’t eat carbohydrates, the body will convert your muscle tissue and other proteins into glucose in order to maintain the blood sugar level. This is true but only if you don’t have any fat on your body. I believe what has been ignored is that the body will first turn to the stored fat. Stored fat converts to fuel easier and provides more energy (Calories) than protein. Fat is the real storage fuel for your body, not protein. So fear of loosing valuable quality proteins such as glands and muscle tissue because of a lowered intake of carbohydrate is only true when you don’t have any fat adipose tissue on you body frame. And you know Tim, who doesn’t have fat.

I hope l simplified my answer  and if you have more questions? Shoot them. Thanks.
