Facts to Ponder:

  • Despite the risks, only four Americans in ten try to avoid high cholesterol diets.
  • Only 21% of adults over 25 are within their recommended weight range.
  • 62% of Americans are clearly overweight.
  • Moderate exercise can reverse the affects of aging. It improves the heart and respiration, lowers blood pressure, quickens reaction time, reduces the susceptibility to depression and promotes clear thinking.


An Enemy of Weight Control

One of the secrets to controlling weight is developing muscle mass, because muscle mass provides the furnace where most fat is burned. Those who attempt to lose weight by gong on a low-calorie diet actually destroy their ability to burn fat through a process called gluconeogenesis. This term is derived from gluco (meaning sugar), neo (meaning new) and genesis (meaning formation). Thus gluconeogenesis is the formation of new sugar from other sources (protein). Gluconeogenesis results when low caloric intake forces the body to burn lean muscle tissue. This not only reduces muscle mass, it can be dangerous. There have been cases where low calorie dieters suffered heart attacks because their body actually burned away part of the heart muscle in an effort to avoid stavation.

By eating plenty of good, nutritious food on a regular basis, you will be supplying your body with all the energy that it requires. This will prevent it from burnng lean muscle tissue through gluconeogenesis. if your muscle mass is low through restrictive diets, you can begin the process of rebuilding it through eating nutritious food and by starting a moderate exercise program that will promote muscle building and facilitate the fat process.

The Positive Aspects of Fat

The word "fat" probably spurs as much negative reaction as any other word in the English Language. However, a certan amount of fat is essential to maintain good health. The weight control program recommends your diet consist of 20% fat, while other experts consider as much as 30% fat all right.

Here are some of the positive aspects of fat

  • Fat helps maintain proper body temperature by providing insulation.
  • Fat protects organs against damage.
  • Fat provides energy. One gram of fat furnishes nine calories while one gram from proteins or carbohydrates only produces four calories.
  • Fat carries the fat-soluble vitamins A,D,E, and K.
  • Fat gives body contour.

The problem, then is not fat, but too much fat. The average American consumes 40% of his or her diet in fat, which combined with a lack of exercise can result in obesity.
