Is Your Brain Making Your Fat

Ways Your Brain Is Making You Fat
The glass-half-empty mindset can be hard on your heart, but it also drives poor eating habits, says registered dietitian Kaleigh McMordie. Weight-loss advertising is particularly good at preying on the negative thinking habits that many people develop toward food, McMordie says. "The whole dieting industry is designed to play off of making people feel bad about their bodies and themselves," McMordie explains, "making them think they need to spend all of this money on a diet plan that doesn't work. When the diet fails that person, they feel worse about themselves, and the cycle continues. People often blame themselves, when in reality, it is the diet that fails, not the person. Until people break out of the diet mentality, it is hard to appreciate the body, no matter what size, for all that it does."

Ever have a big presentation coming up or you're about to have a difficult conversation with someone you love? You should try to manage your stress or you might find yourself reaching for second (or ahem, third) helpings of your dinner or favorite snack. Often referred to as stress eating, this type of behavior is induced by anxiety and unless addressed, can be detrimental to that scale—both up and down. "Anxiety can absolutely affect the diet. Anxiety manifests differently in individuals. Some people may find themselves needing to control every ounce of food they eat, others may feel the urge to overeat, and others may lose their appetite altogether,

Thought patterns that drive overeating can be subtle, but depression is an obvious path to food troubles. An analysis of depression and obesity published in the Archives of General Psychiatry revealed that the mood disorder is indelibly linked to weight gain. Keith Ayoob, registered dietitian and associate professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, explains that with depression, your food mood and perspective will change dramatically. Feelings of depression could show up in binge eating or starvation, but what's key is to address your feelings head-on. "It's so important to recognize what's going on and seek appropriate help so you can take steps to not let depression impact your health and weight," he says.

Life is crazy, and when you're watching calories, forcing yourself to go to the gym and resisting those 11 a.m. cravings, you can feel even more stressed than normal. And a stressed brain can subtly undermine your efforts. McMordie says that "when people feel insecure about their bodies or eating habits, they may overly restrict the types of foods they eat or the amount that they eat. The body is designed for survival. It does not know that the person is purposely restricting food, it just knows that it doesn't have enough, so it will automatically slow down body processes, including metabolism, in order to conserve energy and survive," McMordie says. "This biological process also initiates a primal drive to eat more in order to survive, leading the person to unconsciously overeat and obsess about food."

There are a lot of myths about weight loss out there, but one thing that's proving undeniably true is that your brain hates dieting. In a new study of mice published in the online medical journal eLife, researchers discovered key brain cells actively prevent the body from burning fat when food is scarce. The researchers theorize we developed this trait when our ancestors needed to survive famines, but nowadays it just means that starving your self will actually turn on your body's fat-preservation mode. "Our findings suggest that a group of neurons in the brain coordinate appetite and energy expenditure, and can turn a switch on and off to burn or spare calories depending on what's available in the environment," says says study leader Dr. Clémence Blouet from the Metabolic Research Laboratories at University of Cambridge, U.K., in a press release from Science Daily. "If food is available, they make us eat, and if food is scarce, they turn our body into saving mode and stop us from burning fat."
