Diet to Stop Over Secretion of Insulin by Pancreas and lose Fat

The pancreas is considered a fat throttle, it tells the body how to use sugars starches, and carbohydrate to make you gain weight.

The theory of this diet is:

Assumptions: (beliefs)

1. The pancreas controls weight gain, more or less is the bodies throttle.

2. Too many carbohydrates, and the pancreas tells the body to gain weight.

3. Eating carbohydrates causes the pancreas to over-secrete insulin, tell the body to gain weight. Plus you become hungry.

Examples: Sugars, Starches and Carbohydrates.

Therefore: If you stop eating simple sugars, starches, and carbohydrates you will lose weight. This is almost the Atkins die, but he is listing out the non-carbs to eat, mostly proteins, while this diet points out the problem carbohydrates.

Pancreas Diet

The belief here is, you can eat as much as you want, if you do not eat carbohydrates. You cannot put your foot on the throttle and gain weight by eating carbohydrates. More or less, no sugar rushes, and no bread, rice, potatoes, pasta rushes.

Entering ketosis when the body uses body fat. If the diet is changed from one that is high in carbohydrates to one that does not provide sufficient carbohydrate to replenish glycogen stores, the body goes through a set of stages to enter ketosis. During the initial stages of this process, blood glucose levels are maintained through gluconeogenesis, and the adult brain does not burn ketones. However, the brain makes immediate use of ketones for lipid synthesis in the brain. After about 48 hours of this process, the brain starts burning ketones in order to more directly use the energy from the fat stores that are being depended upon, and to reserve the glucose only for its absolute needs, thus avoiding the depletion of the body's protein store in the muscles.

Ketosis is deliberately induced by use of a ketogenic diet as a medical intervention in cases of intractable epilepsy. Other uses of low-carbohydrate diets remain controversial.
