Why People Find It Hard To Lose Weight Even After Calorie Cutting

This was in today’s news: Why People Find It Hard To Lose Weight Even After Calorie Cutting. Naturally… I was intrigued. Are they finally going to admit that calorie cutting causes binge eating and food addictions? I bet you’re wondering too…

The answer is no. They are not. They are going to say “weight gain among dieters is related to a type of protein, which is found on the fat cells’ surface of human and other mammals. The protein RAGE or the Receptor for Advanced Glycation End products played some previously unobserved roles in controlling weight gain and weight loss in a mammal’s body.”

Once again the natural science community turns a complete blind eye to the psychological aspects of being human. 

Nobody wants to ask people, “how do you feel after cutting calories?” or “do you feel like you are obsessing over food now that you are attempting to eat less?”

Or even paying attention to the NATURAL state a human goes into when something is taken away from them. Hello, just watch a 2-year-old when you tell them they can’t have something. Guess what: That never changes! We just don’t fall on the floor in a puddle of tears when it’s taken away (at least not all the time). 

Want to know why we gain weight after calorie cutting? I don’t even need to conduct an experiment to know this answer…

Because we’re humans. And when someone takes away something from us (even ourselves) we will hyper-focus on wanting more of it. And when our willpower is drained, we gonna eat!

Mic drop.

It’s not rocket science people.
