OBESITY AND WEIGHT-GAINING PROCESS
Most experts contend that the tendency to be fat is inherited. But, says Dr. Theodore Van Itallie, co-director of the Obesity Research Center of St. Luke’s/ Roosevelt Hospital Center in Manhattan, “Obesity results from a combination of genetics and environment. You have to eat a lot to get fat.”
The obese body contains more fat cells- living sacs that make up the fatty flesh-than does the never-obese body. A 400-pound person may have four times more fat cells than does a normal-weight person. And the fat cells are bigger.
If you lose weight with any method, the fat cells block winning. It seems to work this way: As the obese person gains weight, the number of fat cells increases. That occurs because the specialized fat cells increase with the excess calories that the fat person consumes. When the fat cell reaches a certain diameter, the cell divides. Now the fat person not only has more pounds, he or she also has more cells.
When the morbidly fat person tries to lose weight, the fat cells become starved for more nutrition. When they shrink to a particular size, they do not die. Instead, they send chemical signals to the appetite centers in the brain. Those chemical semaphores tell the brain, “Eat! Eat! Eat!” And the weight-gaining process starts all over again. Scientists are avidly searching for chemicals that will block the “eat” signals.
