What is Your Relationship Like with Food?

You don’t have to be Einstein to know the rates of weight gain and obesity in Australia have increased for both adults and children over the past few decades. Comparisons among other developed countries show that Australia has the second highest rate of obesity for males and the fifth highest for females. Many experts are concerned about the effect rising obesity may have on our rates of diabetes, heart disease and other disorders, perhaps even on our life expectancy. And halting and reversing this trend has now become a national priority.

But on a personal level, being overweight affects our self-esteem, our self-confidence and our quality of life.

Poor diet and lifestyle are considered the most common reasons people become overweight. It is logical, then, to presume that reversing these western lifestyle factors will be enough to reverse the weight gain.
However, as most of us know from experience, getting the weight off and keeping it off is often not that simple.

We do know on some level that ‘What we Eat’, ‘How we Eat’, the ‘Amount we Eat’ and ‘Why we Eat’ coupled with a lack of movement, will directly influence how and where our body metabolises and stores energy (fat).

But We Also Know That It Is Not As Simple As That.

Toxins (from our food and environment), stress, lack of sleep and nutrient deficiencies will all impact our body’s fat metabolising pathways. Other physiological pathways including our “satiety system”(feeling of fullness), mitochondrial system (the cells the body uses to convert our food into energy), insulin production system and metabolism  are directly influenced not only by the food we eat and the exercise we do, but also by the amount of stress we are under, the amount of sleep we get and whether the body has the right nutrients available at the time for them to actually work effectively.

So that simple mathematic equation of “energy-in should equal energy-out” is very simplistic. And we as individuals are anything but simplistic.
