Nutrition and Exercise #5

Posted: January 27, 2011 in Nutrition & Exercise, Personal Whining

On a completely different note, one fascinating point brought up in Taubes’ book is the fact that our bodies begin producing insulin when we even start thinking about eating.  This insulin production inhibits fat burning and encourages fat storing.  So just thinking about food, it seems, makes us fat.

If that is the case, is it possible that some form of meditation should be part of any diet?  Through meditation, one should be able to break the Pavlovian link between thinking about food and insulin production.  This would, at least, lead to less fat storage, and perhaps even promote fat burning.

Worth thinking about.
