Der Hunger

"Wie zum Teufel können wir weiterleben, obwohl wir wissen, dass diese Dinge geschehen? "
Alle zehn Sekunden stirbt irgendwo auf der Welt ein variety unter fünf Jahren an den Folgen von Unterernährung. Das sind drei Millionen Kinder im Jahr. Insgesamt knapp neun Millionen Menschen. Jedes Jahr. Wir wissen das, wir kennen die Zahlen. Der starvation ist, so heißt es, das größte lösbare challenge der Welt. Es sieht aber nicht so aus, als würden wir es in absehbarer Zeit lösen. Und das ist eine Schande.
Vier Jahre hat Martín Caparrós den ganzen Globus bereist, um diese Schande zu kartografieren: Er warfare in Niger, wo der starvation so aussieht, wie wir ihn uns vorstellen; in Indien, wo mehr Menschen hungern als in jedem anderen Land; in den united states, wo jeder Sechste Probleme hat, sich ausreichend zu ernähren, während jeder Dritte unter Fettleibigkeit leidet; in Argentinien, wo Nahrungsmittel für three hundred Millionen Menschen produziert werden, obwohl sich viele Bürger kein Fleisch mehr leisten können.

Der starvation, so Caparrós, ist keine Naturkatastrophe, die schicksalhaft über die Menschen hereinbricht. Der starvation ist der krasseste Ausdruck der gigantischen sozialen Ungleichheit in einer Welt, in der das reichste Prozent mehr besitzt als alle anderen zusammen.

Alternately, it may simply be that refeeds aren’t a good idea at this point and you should stick with free meals and full diet breaks for the time being. I’ll mention this again in the next chapter. com Chapter 11: Structured Refeeds Part 2 In the last chapter, I made some general comments about structured refeeds, including the obligatory warning about what not to do. As well, I made a few basic comments about the purpose of the refeeds (both psychological and physiological) and addressed some of the issues surrounding food choices.

Taste buds take time to adjust and adding free meals in too early can be a way to prevent you from getting away from the types of foods that made you fat in the first place. Quite in fact, people often find that several weeks of relatively strict dieting tend to eliminate the taste they had for certain types of foods (whatever isn’t allowed on the diet) and they tend to go less crazy during free meals. But this takes a few weeks at least to occur. At that point, the free meals can be incorporated.

One of the key molecules in all of this, though, is a compound called neuropeptide Y or NPY. When NPY levels go up in the brain, the body’s entire attention seems to be drawn to food. Quite in fact, rats injected with NPY will forego sex for sugar water. Basically, it’s yet another biological process trying to keep you alive, when you’re starving to death (and dieting is just starvation on a lesser scale), eventually your body makes you think about nothing about food. I should mention that NPY (along with a host of other brain chemicals) is also involved in the metabolic rate slowdown, hormonal problems, and all the rest I described in a previous chapter.
