Your Fat Cells Are Multiplying When You Least Expect It

Adipogenesis made me fat… We’ve known for some time that fat cells and and will multiply. Previous belief has been that fat cells could only increase in number under certain circumstances such as extreme weight gain or at certain times in a person’s life-cycle, such as during pregnancy and during late childhood and early puberty.

But a study on lower body fat cells is making big waves. Researchers found that a gain of only approximately 1.6 kilograms of lower body fat resulted in the creation of 2.6 billion new adipocytes in just 8 weeks. This confirmed that lower body fat accumulates quickly through fat cell multiplication.

I found this to be very interesting because my husband’s issues with weight didn’t start until after his first leg injury, where he didn’t walk for six months. And then for me by two big gains have been post miscarriage So of course the last time my husband was finally almost to his goal… he broke his knee cap and then had shoulder surgery. It seems like the more he would try to feed to build when he was recovering, the common muscle feeding tip that body builders use, the less results he was seeing. This I believe has to do with all of that.

So what can you do to stop some of this and create apoptosis, or fat cell die off?

Inhibition of adipogenesis creates this induction of apoptosis!!

Piceatannol is a metabolite of highly bioavailable resveratrol and in natural foods. Piceatannol is structurally related to resveratrol except for one small modification, and is found in plants alongside resveratrol, and so it’s in your almonds, your blackberries, your grapes. In 2003 studies prompted research interest in piceatannol and its effect on these diseases. They found in one study that it blocked LMP2A, a viral protein-tyrosine kinase implicated in leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other diseases associated with Epstein Barr Virus. A 2012 Purdue University study found that fat cells in culture, in the presence of piceatannol, alters the timing of gene expressions, gene functions and insulin action, resulting in the delay or complete inhibition of adipogenesis. Could this be why in the 7 weeks on the T30 along you can continue to lose that dreaded belly fat?

7 Weeks On the Transform30 : Oct 21 to Dec. 12

I am using a highly bioavailable whole foods berry/grape supplement to see if that support can help create that apoptosis and kill off some of those billions of new fat cells I’ve created through the ups and downs in life, as well as my vegan protein shakes (but you could also use the new Bar that is soy-free).We’re also trying a new program I’ve created called ‘Paleo Blocks’… you know who gets to be the guinea pig for all of my tests, right? 😉 I’ll share when it’s tweaked just right and let you know. But in the mean time make sure you try out my FREE 5 Day Meal plan, and order the Paleo Vegeo program, Nourished In 30 on Amazon.. a real steal priced for everyone!!

Exercise Slows Aging, but Research Shows it Doesn’t Slow Cancer

Exercise Slows Aging, Study Says it’s a FOXO Protein

What are they? FOXO proteins are a subgroup of the Forkhead family of transcription factors. This family is characterized by a conserved DNA-binding domain (the ‘Forkhead box’, or FOX) and comprises more than 100 members in humans, classified from FOXA to FOXR on the basis of sequence similarity. These proteins participate in very diverse functions: for example, FOXE3 is necessary for proper eye
development, while FOXP2 plays a role in language acquisition.

Members of class ‘O’ share the characteristic of being regulated by the insulin/PI3K/Akt signaling pathway. Exercise training significantly increased FOXO3a protein in the heart and FOXO3a in the adipose tissue of aged rats. Exercise training significantly increased FOXO3a protein in the heart and FOXO3a mRNA in adipose tissue of aged rats. In this study they concluded that exercise training, which significantly increases SIRT1 activity, could counteract age-related systems impairment.

So what’s originally was found when they studied to see what made yeast age. This lead to the research that they have done on Resveratrol and it’s effects on our aging process, and the SIRT1 activity. 

What the newest research shows:

So what I found most interesting in this study is that they have said all along that exercise will fight aging because it increases the FOXO3a protein. But reporting in the Sept. 3 issue of Molecular and Cellular Biology, found that FOXO3a, a transcription factor that regulates gene expression, becomes active when growing cancer cells begin to starve. Their research suggests that this protein then turns on molecular switches that allow the cancer cells to invade surrounding tissues. Resveratrol ‘clips’ these proteins. MU researchers found that when the cancer was treated with resveratrol alone, 44 percent of the tumor cells were killed. 

Below, Donna Antarr, M.D. and William Amzallag, M.D. discuss the benefits of my choice of Resveratrol, Reserve. Please listen and you will learn all about the science behind resveratrol as well as the other natural anti-oxidants found in Reserve – like grapeseed, blueberry, and aloe vera! Learn how this product can defend against aging by resisting that oxidative stress and free radical damage. If you’ve read the news – so many of these anti-oxidants are bad for us, and the science was never done before we started using them. Unlike those, resveratrol has been getting lots of studies and the results are amazing!!
