over eat; we are all too familiar with the tight belt situation that requires
loosening! The truth is that we over eat because we are not giving our body the
nutrients that it needs to function.
people do understand is that overweight people eat more however there are many
reason for this, in this article I will discus just one namely bioavailability!
(B.V) is the degree to which a substance becomes available to the body after it
is absorbed. Put simply it is the percentage of food that the body can use to nourish
itself. Letís compare two products, A and B. For our example lets assume that
product A has a B.V. value of 1% while product B has a B.V. value of 80%.
need to eat 80 times more of product A to get the same nutrition from eating
product B just once! The person eating product A consumes more energy than they
will need and their survival mechanics convert this excess energy into FAT!
This is where most people get it wrong; eating so that you feel full is easily
achieved at a low cost with food that has a low BV value. Consuming large
amounts of food will become unavoidable, as you eat food with a low B.V. value you
are not nourishing the body and your brain will tell you that you are hungry until
you supply it with adequate nourishment! This result in overeating and sugar
cravings which predispose you to many other problems!
explain to my patients that spending a little more on food that has a high B.V
value is essential! There are many ways to understand the B.V. value of food
and while it takes time to master it is well worth the effort. You can be sure
that in the near future governments will not require food producers to give the
B.V value to consumers so itís up to you!
It is also
worth noting that we are not made of what we eat, the body can only use what it
absorbs from what we eat and our environment. This holds true for the food we
eat as well!
is a key life skill that should be taught in schools to everyone, if you would
like to understand how to eat book in for a treatment session or contact us.
