One Pound of Fat Versus One Pound of Muscle: Clearing up the Misconceptions

One Pound of Fat Versus One Pound of Muscle: Clearing up the Misconceptions | Physical Education - The Nutrition Component | Scoop.it

By Bamboo Fitness
Debunking the myth

"Have you ever heard the saying, “Muscle weighs more than fat?” Perhaps at some point in your life you were working your butt off in the gym in an attempt to lose weight. During this time, you hopped onto the scale weekly, sometimes even daily. Some days were better than others. Sometimes the numbers on the scale decreased, but to your dismay, this wasn’t always the case. Some weigh-ins showed that the scale read higher than your starting weight. Other days the scale wouldn’t budge. This would depress and sadden you. To soothe your worries and soften the blow of the scale, perhaps a family member, friend, personal trainer, or doctor told you that you shouldn’t freak out because the scale is showing that there has been a gain in muscle and that “muscle weighs more than fat.” Maybe you relaxed after hearing this. Maybe you were skeptical of this comment."...

Obesity 'linked to 10 cancers'

Obesity 'linked to 10 cancers' | Physical Education - The Nutrition Component | Scoop.it

Being overweight and obese puts people at greater risk of developing 10 of the most common cancers, according to research in the Lancet medical journal.

 

Scientists calculated individuals carrying this extra weight could contribute to more than 12,000 cases of cancer in the UK population every year.

 

They warn if obesity levels continue to rise there may be an additional 3,700 cancers diagnosed annually.

 

The study of five million people is the largest to date to confirm the link.

Anne Egros's curator insight, May 19, 7:31 AM

Eat well,  feel good and lose weight without being hungry = Reduce calories from refined carbohydrates. increase fibres and lean proteins

 

Not all calories are created the same.

 

Plan your meals not only based on calories but look also for foods with low glycemic index.

 

 What is the Glycemic Index?

 

 Carbohydrates are absorbed and transformed into glucose in the blood triggering the release of insulin, the hormone that makes the glucose available to the cells and tissues that make your muscles, heart,  brain or adipose tissue. 

 

The glycemic index (GI) describes the blood glucose levels obtained after eating carbohydrates. Choosing low GI carbs – the ones that produce only small fluctuations in our blood glucose and insulin levels – is the secret to long-term health reducing your risk of heart disease and diabetes and is the key to sustainable weight loss.

 

Carbohydrates made of simple sugars like fructose in fruit juices or starch in white pasta or rice are rapidly absorbed and produce a high peak of glucose and insulin increasing fat storage. 

 

Complex carbohydrates are found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and are absorbed slowly giving energy for one hour or so, more when combined with high content of fibers, Fibers are not digested by the body and help to slow the absorption of sugars and fats and lower the glycemic index,  that is why it is better to eat an orange fruit than an orange juice.

 

 Proteins are digested and produce amino acids that regulate the hunger signal sent to your brain so you will feel satisfied and less hungry for a longer period of time.

 

Proteins are found in eggs, milk products, fish, lean meats or legumes (vegetables that includes beans, peas and lentils).  Legumes can be a healthy substitute for meat.

It’s over. The debate is settled. It’s sugar, not fat, that causes heart attacks. Oops. Fifty years of doctors’ advice and government eating guidelines have been wrong.

Why it’s easier for men to lose weight (and how women can learn from this)

Why it’s easier for men to lose weight (and how women can learn from this) | Physical Education - The Nutrition Component | Scoop.it
There’s no gender equality with weight loss. When it comes to offloading extra weight it’s biologically easier for men than for women - and muscle is a key male advantage.
Craig Crossley's insight:

Compared to women, men usually have less fat and more muscle - and because muscle burns more kilojoules than fat a man's metabolic rate can be five to ten per cent higher than that of a woman, explains Sydney-based exercise physiologist Allan Bolton.
