Clinical Research on Cravings in GLOBESITY Bootcamp for the Obese

Supporting Clinical Research on Cravings in GLOBESITY Bootcamp for the Obese

Obesity is caused by overeating, consuming unhealthy food, and satisfying cravings. We propose that while overeating is strongly linked to emotions and consuming unhealthy food relates to poor education, cravings are a medical condition responsible for the majority of unnecessary calories. Cravings differ from hunger in that hunger can be postponed, whereas cravings require immediate satisfaction for a specific substance such as sugar or fat (e.g. cakes, burgers, ice cream). Research proves that cravings are caused by the imbalance of gut flora, blood glucose levels, brain chemicals (mainly neurotransmitters), and five specific hormones (ghrelin, dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and serotonin).

Sugar is made from equal parts of fructose and glucose. Almost all sugars and sweeteners activate the brain reward system, but to different extents. For instance,  fructose consumption is accompanied by a higher activity rise in the brain reward system and less satiety inducing. The effect is seen to a relatively less extent in glucose, saccharin, and sucralose.

Digestive System Of The Obese Vs. Non-Obese

Obesity results from increased energy intake and decreased energy expenditure. The digestive (aka gastrointestinal or GI) system has a key role in the pathogenesis of obesity. Changes in digestive system hormones, digestive tract structure and motility and the inhibition of mechanisms that restrict calorie intake result in weight gain. However, It is not clear if digestive system changes cause or are affected by obesity (Acosta 2014).

Raising Serotonin Naturally without Calories

Elevated brain serotonin levels are necessary for some human functions including elevated ‘happy’ mood and reduced weights. Besides pharmacological interventions that can increase serotonin levels and are therefore useful in the treatment and control of disorders like depression, anxiety, and possibly obesity, there are some non-pharmacologic ‘natural’ ways to increase brain serotonin levels, elevate mood, decrease anxiety and as a result, control appetite and promote weight loss.

The common definition considers red meat as a meat with a darker color before and after cooking. However, in nutrition, red meat is defined as any meat that has more myoglobin than white meat. Red meat is defined as all meats obtained from mammals (regardless of cut or age) as they have more myoglobin (United States Department of Agriculture). This includes beef, veal, lamb, pork, and also a leg of chicken and turkey (the latter are considered white by common definition). Fish and poultry (excluding legs) are considered white meat.

STOPPING TO EAT 4 hours before bedtime

No Calories 4 Hours Before Sleep Effects on Weight Reduction in GLOBESITY Bootcamp Regimen

Post-dinner snacking leads to weight gain through the increased caloric intake (Waller, 2004). Nocturnal snacking increases sugar levels. When sugar levels are increased, hormones such as insulin, ghrelin, and leptin, are activated and specific systems in the body begin to work  (Kalergis, 2003). As the body becomes more alert through glucose metabolism, it may be difficult to switch off and fall asleep (Kristen, 2007). As shown in our other document, inadequate sleep causes weight gain. Women and men consume 15.3% and 9.2% more calories when deprived of sleep, respectively (St-Onge, 2011).

The human body is composed of ~75% water, which plays an important role in every bodily function. Hydrated a person is more efficient in body performance ranging from thinking to burning body fat. Water intake aids in weight loss. It suppresses appetite, boosts metabolism, and makes exercise more effective. Drinking more water promotes satiation, as it passes through the system and stretches the stomach, resulting in fullness. Drinking water also stimulates heat production in the body, resulting in a higher rate of metabolism.

Sleep Duration Effects On Weight Reduction And Cravings In The GLOBESITY Bootcamp For The Obese

The GLOBESITY Bootcamp requires its members to sleep well for 8 hours per day during the weight loss procedure. Research shows that men and women consume 15.3% and 9.2% more calories, respectively, when deprived of sleep (from an average of 8 hours per night to 4 hours per night). For an average intake of 1,900 calories per day, this can lead to a weight gain of 250g to 500g (0.55 lb to 1 lb) per week, and 13 kg to 26 kg (28 lbs to 57 lbs) per year.
