    Pot smokers fasting insulin levels 26% lower than non-pot-smokers

    Pot smokers fasting insulin levels were found to be 26% lower than non-pot-smokers (7.5 uU/mL vs 10.1 uU/mL) according to a study by researchers from Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts, USA and the University of Nebraska College of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska, USA.

    INSULIN & FRUCTOSE

    Robert Lustig, MD gives an example of how excess insulin makes you tired, hungry and fat

    Some researchers have said that insulin is not the cause of obesity, so Robert Lustig, MD gives and example of how excess insulin makes you tired, hungry and fat in this in this 15 minute video interview.


    "The people who object to this… are saying that injecting insulin is different then normal physiological insulin production."


    "It has everything to do with it, and I'll show you how. Let's take you, Andreas [the doctor doing the interview], your nice and thin."


    "Let's say you eat 2000 calories per day and burn 2000 calories per day. You feel good."


    "Are you going to gain weight, lose weight, or stay the same? You're going to stay the same, right? Right, because you burn what you eat, and nothing is stored."


    "Now, let's do a little experiment. I am going to put an IV in your arm… I'm going to follow [you around], and every time you reach for food, I'm going to pump you full of extra insulin that you don't want, and don't need. I'm going to over-insulinize you just like we do with our type 1 diabetics."


    "You wake up in the morning and you start out the day eating 2000 calories just like before, but now, because of the excess insulin… 500 of those 2000 [calories] go straight the fat. You are now 500 calories heavier. Now you only have 1500 calories to burn, but your body wants 2000 calories… It's called starvation."


    "How do you feel when you're starved? Crappy, tired, slothy, you sit on the couch, you don't want to do anything, you don't want to exercise… and, of course, you're hungry. So in a world of free access to food... what are you going to do? You're going to eat [those 500 calories that your body wants.] So now you're eating 2500 calories rather than 2000. But I'm still pumping you full of insulin, so 100 of those 500 [additional] calories goes straight to fat."


    "So now you're 600 calories heavier, and you're only up to 1900 calories to burn, so you still don't feel great, so you go to a doctor and you say, 'Doc, I don't get it. Every time I get on the scale, I weigh more. How come I'm so fat?'”


    "And the doctor tells you, 'I know why you're fat. Because you're a glutton and a sloth.'"


    "Because they're looking at the... outcome of that biochemical process, not the cause."


    "The cause [of gluttony, sloth and weight gain was the excess insulin that I was pumping you full of], where is the outcome was a change in your behavior [increasing your calorie intake to make up for those calories that were lost to fat.]"


    "The problem was [caused by] too much insulin, not gluttony and sloth."


    Author Gary Taubes talks about the exact same thing in his book “Why We Get Fat”.


    Lustig says that he believes the increase in obesity in the past 25 years is mostly due to an increase in fructose consumption which causes insulin resistance, which raises insulin levels, which causes the body to convert more calories into fat, which makes people tired and hungry, and makes them fat.


    Lustig says that the idea that people have gotten fatter due to a lack of will power is not correct.

    INSULIN & FRUCTOSE

    Focusing on eating less and exercising more has set up back says Robert Lustig, MD

    When asked about the idea that overweight people merely need to eat less and exercise more, Robert Lustig, MD says in this 15 minute video interview, "I think that [message] is what has set us back so severely in this entire disaster [of increasing obesity] is this concept "Eat less, exercise more."

    "First of all, people can't eat less, and people can't exercise more," Lustig continues.


    Lustig says that he believes that there are biochemical forces driving people to overeat and under-exercise, and he believes that one of the major forces is excess insulin caused by excess fructose consumption.

    "Prior to 1940, pretty much across the board, people recognized that obesity was a defect in fat deposition," notes Robert Lustig, MD in this 15 minute video interview.

    Author Gary Taubes refers to it as a problem with fat regulation rather than fat deposition, but Lustig and Taubes are talking about the same thing.


    Lustig says that he believes the increase in obesity in the past 25 years is mostly due to an increase in fructose consumption which causes insulin resistance, which raises insulin levels, which causes the body to convert more calories into fat, which makes people tired and hungry, and makes them fat.


    Lustig says that the idea that people have gotten fatter due to a lack of will power is not correct.

    INSULIN & FRUCTOSE

    Obesity is a problem of fat regulation says Robert Lustig, MD

    "The two behaviors that we associate with obesity… gluttony and… sloth are actually markers for the biochemical process rather than causes," notes Robert Lustig, MD in this 15 minute video interview.

    "The question is, which comes first?" Lustig continues.


    "[The gluttony and sloth are] a result [of this biochemical process that causes obesity], not a cause."


    Author Gary Taubes talks about the exact same thing in his book "Why We Get Fat".


    Lustig says that he believes the increase in obesity in the past 25 years is mostly due to an increase in fructose consumption which causes insulin resistance, which raises insulin levels, which causes the body to convert more calories into fat, which makes people tired and hungry, and makes them fat.

    INSULIN & FRUCTOSE

    Excess insulin due to excess fructose is the cause of obesity in 90% of people, Robert Lustig, MD

    "The question is, what is the biochemical force that is driving weight gain?" asks Robert Lustig, MD in this 15 minute video interview.

    "Well, there are several, but, I would say that 90% of obese people have one [biochemical force that is driving weight gain]... Insulin," Lustig continues.


    "Insulin is the energy-storage hormone."


    "Insulin's job is to take whatever you're not burning and stored as fat."


    Author Gary Taubes talks about the exact same thing in his book "Why We Get Fat".


    Lustig says that he believes the increase in obesity in the past 25 years is mostly due to an increase in fructose consumption which causes insulin resistance, which raises insulin levels, which causes the body to convert more calories into fat, which makes people tired and hungry, and makes them fat.

    INSULIN & FRUCTOSE

    More insulin means more fat says Robert Lustig, MD

    "More insulin [means] more fat. Period," says Robert Lustig, MD in this 15 minute video interview.

    "If you have high insulin levels, then you will become obese in the long run? Absolutely."


    "It just so happens that when you say high insulin levels, you make it sound like that's an easy thing to figure out. [But] it's not so easy."


    Author Gary Taubes talks about the exact same thing in his book "Why We Get Fat".

    INSULIN & FRUCTOSE

    There are two insulin disorders: insulin resistance and insulin hypersecretion says Robert Lustig MD

    "There are two insulin… disorders. There is one called insulin resistance which people know about," says Robert Lustig, MD in this 15 minute video interview.


    "And then there's a second one called insulin hypersecretion which is not nearly as well known."


    "You can't see it on a fasting [blood sugar] specimen. You have to stimulate [the pancreas to release insulin] to see it."


    "Most people don't do those studies, so they can't see it."


    "More insulin [means] more fat. Period,"


    Author Gary Taubes talks about the exact same thing in his book "Why We Get Fat".

    INSULIN & FRUCTOSE

    Insulin resistance causes leptin resistance which causes people to overeat says Robert Lustig, MD

    Some children who have brain tumors removed have leptin resistance because their brain cannot see the leptin, which makes the body think it is starving all the time, and causes them to constantly overeat and become massively obese notes Robert Lustig, MD in this 15 minute video interview.


    "Those neurons that normally [transmit] the leptin signal in the brain are dead. Their brain sees starvation all the time... ," Lustig notes.


    "[That's very rare, but] the rest of the world suffers from functional leptin resistance [due to insulin resistance caused by ."


    "So this... obesity [seen in these children] is really just a prototype for what's going on in general obesity."


    Lustig says that he believes the increase in obesity in the past 25 years is mostly due to an increase in fructose consumption which causes insulin resistance, which raises insulin levels, which causes the body to convert more calories into fat, which makes people tired and hungry, and makes them fat.

    INSULIN & FRUCTOSE

    The degree of insulin resistance predicts how much people will eat says Robert Lustig, MD

    "There are numerous studies that show that the degree of insulin resistance predicts how much food people will eat at a... buffet," says Robert Lustig, MD in this 15 minute video interview.


    Lustig says that he believes the increase in obesity in the past 25 years is mostly due to an increase in fructose consumption which causes insulin resistance, which raises insulin levels, which causes the body to convert more calories into fat, which makes people tired and hungry, and makes them fat.

    INSULIN & FRUCTOSE

    Insulin causes satiety in the short-term, but hunger in the long-term says Robert Lustig, MD

    Insulin causes satiety in the short-term, but hunger in the long-term says Robert Lustig, MD in this 15 minute video interview.


    "If you go to the literature, it says that insulin causes satiety, and that is true in the acute situation. It is not true in a chronic situation," Lustig notes.


    "And there the data is much less clear, but we have it, and it shows that insulin promotes further food intake."


    "What we are talking about is the chronic effect [of insulin]. Because chronic hyperinsulinemia is a very different animal."


    "In fact, every hormone that exists has a different acute effect then it does a chronic effect. Insulin is no different."


    Lustig says that he believes the increase in obesity in the past 25 years is mostly due to an increase in fructose consumption which causes insulin resistance, which raises insulin levels, which causes the body to convert more calories into fat, which makes people tired and hungry, and makes them fat.

    INSULIN & FRUCTOSE

    Other things besides carbohydrates can increase insulin says Robert Lustig, MD

    "I think there are a lot of things that can cause insulin to go up," notes Robert Lustig, MD in this 15 minute video interview.


    "Branched chain amino acids cause insulin to go up. [Branched chain amino acids include leucine, isoleucine, and valine.] It's not just carbohydrates. It's not just fructose."


    "I think those [an increase in fructose] are the big things that have increased globally in the last 25 years that coincide with the obesity epidemic, but I think there are a lot of things that could potentially do it [cause excess insulin release]. For any individual patient, you have to evaluate that patient, and see what's going on, in direct therapy appropriately."


    Lustig says that he believes the increase in obesity in the past 25 years is mostly due to an increase in fructose consumption which causes insulin resistance, which raises insulin levels, which causes the body to convert more calories into fat, which makes people tired and hungry, and makes them fat.

    FRUCTOSE

    Fructose causes obesity by causing leptin resistance says Robert Lustig, MD

    Fructose causes obesity by raising insulin, causing insulin resistance which causes leptin resistance which reduces metabolism and increases appetite says Robert Lustig, MD.

    "Our environment is insulinogenic. We have to get the insulin down," Lustig notes in a slide show. Read the entire article | Email this article
