Mother never had a problem with her midsection. She was known for portioning the amount of food she ate and served. Whenever, we became hungry in the evening we would have a bowl of cereal. Back in the 1950’s and 1960’s, the wheat did not take a nosed-dive into being altered until the 1970’s and on.
I can still remember Mother sharing with me her news about buying a loaf of bread. She wondered what made the bread softer, stayed fresher and lasted longer. There was rumor going around NOT to eat the bread, because it was not good for you!
When it comes to one’s midsection, most people I know have a problem with visceral fat accumulation. High blood insulin is what causes this fat. When visceral fat accumulates, the flood of inflammatory signals it produces causes tissues such as muscle and liver to respond less to insulin. This so-called insulin resistance means that the pancreas must produce greater and greater quantities of insulin to metabolize the sugars. Eventually, a vicious circle of increased insulin resistance, increased insulin production, increased deposition of visceral fat, increased insulin resistance become problematic.
