Three components to Metabolic Engineering: Polyphenols, Omega-3 fatty acids, and, most importantly (and most difficult), calorie restriction.
Diet is incredibly important during pregnancy, especially getting enough Omega-3 fatty acids which are the primary constituents of brain tissue. If the brain patterns are not set down correctly during the fetal period, then the child may have a much tougher road in the future.
Improving the metabolism in the brain is the best way to improve brain health and cognitive function. Metabolic Engineering can be instrumental in this area, allowing you to reprogram every cell in your body, including those in the brain to produce more energy, helping the brain run at peak efficiency.
There isn’t one type of food that burns fat faster. Rather, there’s a combination of protein, non-starchy carbohydrates, and monounsaturated fats that will burn fat most efficiently.
We think of genes as genetic code, but the genetic code is static. It doesn’t change. What changes and what turns genes on and turns genes off is called epigenetics, and that’s controlled by your metabolism.
Insulin resistance is a catch-all term that says your metabolism is not very efficient.
Dr. Barry Sears takes the New York Times Protein Challenge Quiz and provides some feedback on the answers.
Is Belly Fat Dangerous?
Visceral fat (Belly Fat) is different than subcutaneous fat (fat on your hips). Visceral fat is fat that surrounds your tissues. That fat is very active and can cause inflammation in every organ in your body.
What is AMPK?
AMPK is the master regulator of metabolism in each of our 37 trillion cells. It’s a central hub which all metabolic machinery runs through. So activating AMPK is the secret to having a more efficient metabolism.
The Truth About Carbs and Fat
When you eat carbohydrates, they cause an increase in the hormone insulin. It’s excess insulin that makes you fat and keeps you fat. This gives rise to a condition known as insulin resistance.
Metabolic Engineering and Type-2 Diabetes
Can Metabolic Engineering help Type-2 diabetes? The answer is a resounding yes. In fact, the underlying cause of Type-2 diabetes is a condition known as insulin resistance. Metabolic Engineering was developed and patented to reduce insulin resistance.
Can I Alter My Metabolism?
Altering your metabolism by done by the food diet—one that has a very defined format in terms of the amount of calories, the balance of protein to carbohydrate, and the levels of Omega-3 fatty acids and polyphenols. If you have the right mixture, you’re able to change your metabolism for the better.
Understanding Metabolic Rates
There are two things that control metabolic rates. One is the efficiency of your metabolism. A high-efficiency metabolism doesn’t use many calories. An inefficient metabolism uses lots of calories. But the other thing that controls your metabolic rate is the amount of muscle you have. Muscle requires energy to move. Fat does not.
The Benefits of Metabolic Engineering
There are many benefits to following Metabolic Engineering, but the biggest, most important gain is simple: You stay well for a longer period of time.
Stress and Metabolism
Stress causes insulin resistance by increasing the hormone cortisol, which creates a decrease in metabolic efficiency. Reducing stress should be your primary goal in terms of living a longer and better life.
What are Zombie Cells?
Zombie Cells, otherwise known as senescent cells, are aging, transformed cells similar to a cancer cell. But unlike a cancer cell, they don’t exhibit uncontrolled growth. But they do increase inflammation. These senescent cells are drivers for developing chronic disease and accelerating the aging process.
The Truth Behind Carbs and Fat
When you eat carbohydrates, they cause an increase in insulin. It’s excess insulin that makes you fat and keeps you fat, giving rise to a condition known as insulin resistance.
Is Intermittent Fasting Healthy?
There’s still debate on whether intermittent fasting makes a difference in long-term weight loss. But there are benefits to eating at specific times.
