Breakfast. Sets the pace for the day!
In our ‘got-to-go’ society, the trend has been to skip breakfast and ‘grab something on the run’ which more and more has become coffee and a muffin or other sweet pastry, and give the kids some sort of starch and sugar in a box with low fat milk.
This ‘habit’ has definitely helped fuel the Diabetic and Obesity epidemic throughout North America not to mention the ‘always hungry and tired feelings’ we have throughout the day.
Insulin and Leptin
Two hormones, insulin and leptin are now clearly at the center of discussion and need to be understood in order to get this epidemic under control. Hormones are chemical messengers that direct, orchestrate and regulate all your body’s activities.
These two in particular govern when you are hungry, when to stop eating, what your body should do with its glucose and fat…store it or burn it…(I know which one I’d rather have happening!!)
Insulin is such an important hormone that without it, cells would stop allowing glucose (your energy molecule) from entering through the cell membrane and be metabolized for energy production. Diabetics know this only too well, but so do top athletes who strive to achieve enhanced performance.
Leptin on the other hand is a hormone, produced by your fat cells. It tells your brain when you should eat, how much and WHEN to stop. It also has other critical functions such as regulating blood circulation, preventing blood clots, enhancing new bone growth, regulating body temperature and cell reproduction to name but a few.
When the body’s levels of both are too high, you have serious problems with sugar and fat metabolism, which commonly leads to diabetes and obesity if left unchecked. The culprit is progressive Insulin and Leptin Resistance.
In Insulin Resistance, the body’s sugar levels progressively increase in an attempt to trick the cell in absorbing more glucose, because elevated insulin levels gradually slow the process down. It leads to a vicious circle of hyper and hypoglycemic events and eventually to many degenerative diseases including but not limited to diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
In Leptin Resistance, your body’s ‘fat burning’ slows down, giving rise to sweet cravings and more fat storage. This in turn leads to the same degenerative diseases as insulin resistance. Look at it this way, the more your inadequate diet triggers high levels of Insulin or Leptin, the more your body gets ‘tired’ of the constant demand (nagging) for sugar and the more your insulin just stops ‘listening’ and shuts down it’s receptors (preventing absorption into the cell). This is ‘Resistance’. Sound a lot like a nagging spouse syndrome doesn’t it.
Both hormones are ‘regulators’ and as such should not be inhibited by drugs lest you want a whole lot of side effects. For the majority of people, the only sensible way for these two to return to normal is to adopt dietary changes.
