  3. 3. The Nature of Obesity<br />
  4. 4. Definition of Obesity<br />Wikipedia<br />Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems. <br />
  5. 5. Obesity is a Disorder<br />Obesity is a disease where excess calories are stored in abnormal fat deposits as the result of the improper functioning of the hypothalamus.<br />Persons not suffering from this disease will not get fat regardless the amount of food consumed.<br />
  6. 6. 3 Types of Fat<br />
  7. 7. 3 Types of Fat Deposits<br />Structural Fat – essential fatty tissue used to protect organs and keep skin smooth & taunt.<br />Normal Fat – usable fuel reserve that can be metabolized when needed.<br />Abnormal Fat – a potential fuel reserve typically inaccessible and not readily available. <br />
  8. 8. Injustice to the Obese<br />Obese individuals are considered gluttons, greedy, and lack willpower.<br />
  9. 9. Burdens of the Obese<br />Only feel physically well as long as they are stationary or gaining weight.<br />More calories are required by the demands of being overweight.<br />Obesity leads to other health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and indigestion.<br />
  10. 10. Culprit for Obesity<br />Sex Glands<br />Exiting puberty, menopause, etc., led researchers to point to the sex glands as the root of obesity.<br />Researchers experimented with sex hormone therapy and link to obesity was disproved.<br />
  11. 11. Culprit for Obesity<br />Thyroid Gland<br />Controls the metabolism. Individuals with thyroid problems are either overweight or underweight.<br />Weight loss occurred only in individuals treated for an underactive thyroid. Researchers could not use thyroid hormones to treat obesity.<br />
  12. 12. Culprit for Obesity<br />Pituitary Gland<br />It has a vast number of functions in the body, among these include the endocrine glands.<br />Greatly studied and no link could be made to obesity.<br />
  13. 13. Culprit for Obesity<br />Adrenal Glands<br />Many functions. Cushing Syndrome, severe obesity, occurs by excess ACTH excretion by the adrenal glands<br />It was determined that Cushing Syndrome creates only a very specific type of obesity. No link could be made to obesity as a disease in general.<br />
  14. 14. Culprit of Obesity<br />Hypothalamus<br />Responsible for many autonomic functions such as breathing, heart beat and digestion.<br />Upstream from other organs discussed.<br />Research links hypothalamus to voracious appetite and rapid weight gain in lab rats.<br />* hCG does not communicate with hypothalamus.<br />
  15. 15. How does hCG Diet Work?<br />The theory behind the success of the hCG weight loss diet is that you must “reset” the hypothalamus in order to stop obesity.<br />hCG is used in correlation with a low calorie diet to metabolize the stored abnormal fat deposits.<br />The metabolizing of abnormal fat sustains the body while allowing the hypothalamus to reset.<br />
  16. 16. How to “Reset”<br />The hypothalamus controls many autonomic functions and is overtaxed in obese individuals.<br />A very low calorie diet will reduce and/or eliminate the need of the hypothalamus to perform those functions.<br />This allows the hypothalamus to catch up to the bodies demands.<br />
  17. 17. What is hCG?<br />Human chorionic gonadotropin(hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone found in every tissue throughout the human body (both males & females) and produced in very high quantities during pregnancy by the placenta.  <br />hCG plays many roles during one of which is transforming "abnormal fat" into usable energy for the body. <br />
  18. 18. Fat Bank<br />Everyone has a fat bank.  <br />Your fat bank is the amount of fat your diencephalon can comfortably manage.  <br />Once fat is stored outside of the fat bank it is considered abnormal fat and the diencephalon will lose the ability metabolize this fat deposit. <br />
  19. 19. Fat Bank<br />
  20. 20. Causes of Obesity<br />The Inherited Factor<br />When abnormal trait is present, obesity will develop at an early age.<br />This could explain why a typically obese family has a child who is not obese, or vice versa.<br />This child has a fully functional hypothalamus and will not become obese regardless of the number of calories consumed.<br />
  21. 21. Causes of Obesity<br />Other Diencephalic Disorders<br />This is usually the case when one of the diencephalic centers becomes overtaxed. <br />The fat banking capacity is reduced to compensate.<br />Ie. Menopause, post-castration, diabetes, car accident.<br />
  22. 22. Causes of Obesity<br />Exhaustion of the Fat Bank<br />A person with a healthy, functioning hypothalamus can become obese when the fat banking capacity is suddenly stressed.<br />When persons suffering from long periods of deprivation are suddenly allowed to eat as much as they desire obesity often sets in.<br />
  23. 23. Causes of Obesity<br />Lifestyle Changes<br />Diet: a sudden change from unprocessed, unrefined foods to highly processed and refined foods.<br />Moving from a cold climate to warm climate.<br />Living in a warm climate requires less energy than living in a cold climate.<br />
