01/19/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

If you need another reason to begin a clean eating food plan and exercise, it’s good to know that they also help reduce inflammation.  According to an article in the December 2010 issue of Oxygen Magazine, the immune system in fat cells works differently in lean people than overweight people (as if life wasn’t already unfair!).

In lean people, the immune system works to maintain insulin sensitivity.  But in obese people, it promotes inflammation and causes the fat cells to become insulin resistant.  It’s an evil cycle.  Heavyset people now have their bodies defending themselves from the weight gain by producing inflammation, which in turn, promotes fat storage.

Now, the leaner body, through exercise, produces anti-infammatories in muscle cells, which communicates fat breakdown to their cells.

Chronic inflammation (http://www.cincinnati.md/articlepage_cn.aspx?cn-documentid=642185&query=chronic inflammation&s=1&cat=con) has been linked to type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. 

Make exercise a regular part of your healthy living plan and let’s work together to keep your motors running efficiently and productively!
