Scientists have found the link between food intake and body activity in the brain. Researchers came to the conclusion that two different processes in the human brain proceed with the help of a special switch, which is activated during hunger and slows down the body's reaction to insulin.

After eating, the same mechanism causes cells to expend stored energy. In obese people, this switch does not work at all, so the accumulated energy from food intake turns into fatty deposits. The study significantly improves the treatment of patients with a diagnosis of obesity - according to experts, in combination with a certain group of drugs, this method can give a serious effect.

If you have ever struggled to lose weight and to maintain the right weight, you probably already know how difficult it is. Dr. Johnson's new book, "Fat Switch", presents an innovative approach to preventing obesity and reversing it. There are five interesting revelations for those who are struggling to lose weight in this study:

#4. Fructose sugars can lead to obesity by turning on the fat switch.

#5. Effective treatment of obesity requires switching off the fat breaker and normalizing the function of mitochondria cells

The ideal weight does not necessarily depend on the quantity of pounds. There are a number of methods for its calculation. There is a method to measure the ratio of the waist to the hip volume. This is done by measuring the circumference of the thighs in the widest part of them - at the buttock level.

Then you should measure the waist in the thinnest natural part - just above the navel. Divide the waist volume by the thigh size and you will get a ratio. Normal: 0.85 or less. High: 0.85 or more. The percentage of fat in the body is another way to measure the ideal body volume.
