Obesity Cure Possible After Discovery of Fat 'Switch'

Researchers are excited about the possibility of having found a promising lead to what may develop into a new drug that could inhibit and reduce fat in the body, The Telegraph reports. If it works, the drug would rewire the adipose — fat — switch that works with insulin to burn fat in your body. Theoretically, it could be given to obese individuals to manipulate that switch in a way that would cause them to lose weight.

It’s distressing that scientists are so determined to find a pill to fix every ailment, and although this sounds exciting, it’s not the way to address what you weigh, as it doesn’t address how you gain weight in the first place. It also doesn’t address healthy eating habits to keep your body running strong.

It’s imperative to eat the right amounts of certain foods to maintain your muscles, heart, brain and gut — and that’s something no pill can do. More than half of all Americans struggle with chronic illness, and 1 in 5 deaths in the U.S. is obesity-related. This is a direct result of eating far too much sugar and grains, too much protein and far too little healthy fat.

If you’re having a problem losing weight, I suggest learning to optimize your mitochondrial function through diet, so that your body is able to burn fat as its primary fuel rather than sugars. Ketogenic diets are very effective for this, as is fasting.

My new book, “Fat for Fuel,” explains this in detail. When your body is able to burn fat for fuel, your liver creates ketones that burn more efficiently than carbs, thus creating far less reactive oxygen species and secondary free radicals that can damage your cellular and mitochondrial cell membranes, proteins and DNA.
