Researchers from the University of Copenhagen published in The Times recently their findings on their research claiming that they found out that dieting for 12 months would allow the body to adapt through chemical changes in the body.
In their study that was recently published in the International Journal of Obesity, a group of 20 obese individuals were placed on a precise eight week diet and target to lose 28 pounds.
After which the test subjects would follow the diet regimen for the year 12 months and were found to generate less of the hormone that induces hunger called Ghrelin and an increase in the amount of GLP-1, a hormone that suppresses appetite.
Researcher Signe Sorensen Torekov, associate professor of biomedical sciences, pointed out that the findings bolsters the idea that food consumption is a perfectly ‘natural method to preserve life – if we do not eat, we die.’
“Studies show that when you lose a lot of weight, the body fights fiercely against it, but we actually found you are able to keep your weight down for this longer period, your body seems to adapt to this new set point,” Dr. Torekov added.
Obesity continues to be prevalent in American society, where the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported that based on data from 2011 to 2012, 35.1% of adults aged 20 years old and above are obese.
The same data also shows that 69% of adults of the same age level are overweight including those who are obese.
The same increasing statistics are found in children and adolescents, where based on the same data period, 20.5 % of adolescents from 12 to 19 years are obese.
A total of 17.7% of children aged 6-11 are obese, while 8.4% of children from 2 to 5 years old are obese.
On a global scale, overweight and obesity is an increasing health risk affecting a staggering number of 2.1 billion people all over the world.
Among the health conditions that are linked with obesity are heard disease and stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, some types of cancers, gallbladder disease and gallstones, osteoarthritis, gout and breathing problems that often result to sleep apnea and difficulty in breathing during waking time.
