“The study, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, found that fewer than 10 percent of healthy obese people in their 50s and 60s without risk factors for heart disease went on to develop heart failure over six years”.
There are two very different types of metabolism. The minority of obese people have what Metabolism A. They are overweight based on consuming excess calories and not exercising enought. Simply put,their body obeys the “calories in/calories out” rule and they have become obese from overeating and under moving. These are the obese people who don’t develope heart failure in this study.
The majority of obese people have a very different type of metabolism, Metabolism B. Their metabolism includes the genes for metabolic syndrome. Their obesity is precipitated by aberrations in insulin (over-release and eventual resistance) and they will have hypertension, elevated LDL cholesterol, low HDL, elevated triglycerides, and pre diabetes or type 2 diabetes. Follow these obese persons and, sure enough, they will have a much higher risk of heart failure.
It’s time to recognize two types of obesity. One due to “calories in/calories out.” The other due to “hormonal imbalance of the fat gain hormone insulin.” These two obesity types require two opposite approaches to diet.
The treatment for Met A: eat less, exercise more.
The treatment for Met B: The Metabolism Miracle
