Did you know that high-fat food causes brain injury and this contributes to the difficulty in losing weight and why most people regain the weight? Most of my life I lived on high-fat food. I could diet and lose weight (as long as I followed the diet). But, as soon as the diet stopped, I always put the weight back on – and usually even more! Then, in 1996, I was hypnotized for weight loss. I lost over 100 pounds and I have kept it off. My belief is that with hypnosis the brain injury caused by high-fat food can be overcome. My book, Becoming Slender For Life, can help you with your weight loss. Slender For Life™ weight loss hypnosis clients have since 1990 overcome the neuronal injury with hypnosis for weight loss.

Brain Injury From High-Fat Foods May Be Why Diets Fail

The Seattle Times, December 29, 2011: You’ve heard “a minute on the lips, years on the hips,” or some variation. But did it make you put down that frosted butter cookie? No? OK, here’s another bit of research to snack on: After humans and rodents eat a high-fat diet, their brains begin to show evidence of injuries in just 24 hours. If they keep eating that yummy fatty stuff continuously, the area of their brains that regulates weight — the hypothalamus — will show evidence of serious inflammation and structural damage.

Researchers at the University of Washington and other institutions say they’ve found the first evidence that “hypothalamic neuron injury” is associated with obesity caused by a high-fat diet in rodents and humans. That may help explain, researchers said, why dieting and exercise often lead right back to a “set weight” for obese individuals.

“Obese individuals are biologically defending their elevated body weight,” said Dr. Michael Schwartz, a professor of medicine at the University of Washington and the senior author of the paper to be published in the Jan. 3 edition of The Journal of Clinical Investigation.

Eager to explain why that set point seems to exert so much control over a person’s weight, Schwartz said, numerous researchers have speculated about the existence of “fundamental changes” to brain neurocircuits that control energy balance. The findings suggest that both in humans and rodents, “Obesity is associated with neuronal injury in a brain area crucial for body weight control,” researchers wrote. Schwartz said the findings show “solid evidence of a change affecting the key hypothalamic area for body weight control with the potential to explain the problem.”
