Benefits of Fish Oil - Are Your Cells Helping You Lose Weight?
When message are being sent successfully, the body is less likely to overeat leaving us with the perfect size meal for what the body needs. This perfect amount of fuel will lead to a lean physique. When the body has limited fat and a decent amount of muscle, our body will respond to glucose in the blood more efficiently. Muscles use glucose in the blood for fuel to move our bodies, fat doesn’t do this. This is why lean people tend to stay lean, and fat people have a hard time losing weight. Muscular people have their muscles on their side pulling glucose out of the blood (glucose is sugar in the blood – too much over a long period leads to diabetes) and using it for fuel. Obese people (high fat, little muscle) will have glucose running through their blood all day, and without muscle and/or exercise to deplete it, the glucose will soon be turned to fat.
As you can see, our body works synergistically. Everything is a system. We need omega 3 fish oil so our cells can receive/send messages. If this is done properly, we should stay relatively lean, if we are lean and muscular (and exercising), extra glucose should not be in the blood as it is being pulled out constantly.
On the flip side, an obese person who eats high dosage of omega 6 (little omega 3) will not be able to receive messages. This person is already obese due to diet choice and due to unhealthy cells the person is getting fatter. This person isn’t getting messages that they are full of energy from the meal currently being eaten, and the cells are not able to send the message to the brain. So the person keeps eating and getting fatter. At the same time, since there is so much fat and little muscle (along with no exercise), the glucose in the blood has nowhere to go and keeps circulating, leading to diabetes and inviting many other illnesses.
