If anyone truly knows me,you'll know I've got a sweet tooth! Whilst I don't overconsume (well, occasionally🙈), I do nourish my soul,daily, with a sweet treat to keep my mind balanced 😋
Is this purely based on enjoyment? I think so...or have I trained my tastebuds to adapt to sugar?..🤔 Whilst further research is required in this field, it appears our oral cavity triggers our level of satiety and potential weight retention with regards to consuming foods high in fat. Go on...🤔 We hear of more people engaging in "high fat" diets for energy, but do we know just how this concept works from a weight-prevention perspective? Whilst there's no sure answer from an oral receptive angle, ongoing research provides insight into how high fat diets may reduce over-consumption of fatty foods, for a temporary time period: * CD36: membrane protein in our tastebuds, acts as receptors to fatty acids when we consuming foods high in fat
* CD36 potentially has an influence on food consumption via release of pancreatic enzymes to assist in the uptake of fats + initiating satiety * Lean individuals believed to possess more of these receptors, therefore satiety occurs sooner
Soooo....it's suggested we might be able to train our taste cells to signalling when fat is entering our bloodstream...! Ok, so long term high fat diets are the answer to weight loss? Not necessarily!🙈 From a weight retention perspective - not an energy substitute - long term fat consumption CAN have the ability to downplay our sensory receptors to fatty foods, limiting our oral cavity's sensitivity to signalling when fat is present. As a result, weight gain may result if satiety levels are ignored, which can be the initial problem for obese individuals.
As mentioned earlier, research into the chemoreceptive system is being further advanced, but here's just some food for thought!🤓📚🍳 #wholefoods #highfatdiet #health #instahealth #nutrition #nutritionist #nutritionstudent #peanutbutter @mayversfood #mayverspeanutbutter #fibre #goodfats #weightloss #oralchemoreceptive #sciencediet .
