"EMPTY CALORIES" - continued
Okay . . . so yesterday we spoke about what "empty calories" are . . .
Well today . . . I'll explain why we shouldn't eat them.
Remember the other day . . . I told you about the study done by the Food & Nutrition Research journal that said . . . "the human body "only" burns 50% as many calories digesting "empty calorie" food . . . as it does digesting whole "real" food
Well . . . let me explain a little better . . .
You see . . . when we eat an "empty calorie, nutritionally void food" . . . the body "only" digests . . . not utilizes for energy mind you . . . about 50% of those calories . . . with the other 50% going to the body's "FAT STORAGE"!
Now . . . when this happens . . . the body is still looking for "good", nutritious calories to give us energy and for normal bodily functions.
BUT . . . the body isn't getting what it needs because . . . it was looking for vitamins, minerals and fiber . . . and all it got was nutritionally VOID "empty calorie" food.
Okay . . . so at this point . . . our body sends out a "MAYDAY" call to the brain . . .
"WE NEED "NUTRITIOUS" FOOD AND WE'RE NOT GETTING ANY" . . .
So the brain now thinks we're "STARVING" . . .
So what happens next you ask???
Well . . . the brain gets this alert and now stimulates our "SURVIVAL" hormone called "Ghrelin"
And what does this hormone do???
