It's not just about WHAT you EAT; it’s also about WHAT’S EATING YOU


In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I want to talk about stress and obesity. The recent study shows that nearly 72 million Americans are obese. Unfortunately, one out of three kids are also obese and are very likely to be diabetic . The REALITY about obesity is that obesity is not just about WHAT you EAT; but it’s also about WHAT’S EATING YOU.

Your brain is in total control of your body, your thinking, the way you feel, the way you remember, the way you move and walk, even your food digestion, your stress level and your heart beat. The central nervous system is the spinal cord and the brain and nerves are in total control of how you feel and move. Once the nervous system is damaged it cannot be repaired; for example, if your liver is damaged you can repair it by eating raw diet, but unfortunately a damaged nervous system cannot repair itself. Some factors that cause damage to nervous system over a period of time are chronic depression, stress and anxiety. Researchers found out that when the body is stressed out, it releases NPY (neuropeptide Y) that will make fat cells to grow and outnumber.


Most people in times of stress reach out to “comfortable food” high in fat and sugar. In times of stress your metabolism also slows down that and when your body feels alert, it wants to hold on to all its abdominal fat. The good news is that unlike stress, laughter releases endorphins that would effectively lowers the stress hormones and can increase the body’s metabolism.

Will exercise help?

You cannot burn calories just by exercising (30 min of jogging only burns 200 calories which is a chocolate bar). Unlike what people think exercise is not about HOW MANY CALORIES you burn. Exercising regularly will help your muscles and body relax by releasing tension and stress. Therefore your body can get rid of the stubborn fat that it has stored. One of the BEST exercises is walking above a certain heart beat. The other techniques are what the Chinese always believed such as deep breathing, stretching, self massage and meditation.
