Types of Fat Cells – Making Fat Cells Healthy!

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

I found this article by Dr Deanna Minich – a beautiful explanation of current thinking of fat in our bodies!  I hadn’t heard this term of ‘beiging’ our fat cells before – interesting concept and article!!!  Of course we have supplements available at New Leaf with the following healthy nutrients, which make our fat cells healthier!

Beiging: Making Your Fat Cells Healthier with Nutrients

Although excess body fat might contribute to the development of certain diseases, it is important to not simply think of fat as bad or unhealthy. You have different types of fat, or adipose tissue, in your body, each one serving a distinct and important function.  One is designed to store energy for when your body requires additional food, such as when you fast, and the other is ready to burn energy to make heat when you are cold.  Adipocytes, or fat cells, also play a key role in the regulation of appetite, glucose, and energy balance through secreting adipokines, or messengers, such as leptin and adiponectin (Adiponectin is a protein which in humans is encoded by the ADIPOQ gene. It is involved in regulating glucose levels as well as fatty acid breakdown.)

Some adipose tissue is also protective against obesity and metabolic diseases, so it is thought of as the healthier fat. New research is demonstrating that there might be a way to switch the type of fat you have to this healthier type, so it works for your health, not against it, through a process known as beiging.

Types of Adipose Tissue

For decades, it was presumed that there were two main categories of adipose tissue: white adipose tissue and brown adipose tissue. In very general terms, brown adipose tissue is healthier, as this is the one involved in thermogenesis, or the burning of calories to make heat. It is protective against obesity and contains a higher number of mitochondria. White adipose tissue stores excess calories and generally exists in the stomach area and subcutaneously. It is the one associated with disease, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

However, recent research has discovered a third type of adipose tissue: beige. As its name implies, it is a blending of the two types of adipose tissues, although it has a distinct gene expression. Beige adipose tissue has the low basal expression of white fat cells but still will respond to the cyclic AMP stimulation as needed. This feature suggests that the cells have the capacity to switch between storage and creating energy depending on the needs of the body.

Beige adipose tissue arises when brown-like cells accumulate in white adipose tissue, which happens more often in subcutaneous adipose tissue than visceral fat tissue. The addition of the brown cells increases the capacity to burn calories through thermogenesis. There are certain components of these cells that provide them with the special characteristics, including PR domain containing 16 (PRDM16), which is like a switch that differentiates brown adipose tissue. The cells also express the genes for uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1), which typically are reserved for brown adipocytes and are associated with mitochondrial cells, which is where energy production occurs. In general terms, the more mitochondria in a cell, the more energy it can burn.

There are ways to boost the beiging to combat obesity and obesity-related diseases. As an added bonus, many of the recommendations have multiple health-boosting benefits beyond converting your adipose tissue.

Exercise 

Exercise provides many health benefits, including reducing stress, facilitating weight loss, and increasing strength. One way it might provide its benefits, especially in terms of weight loss, is through instigating beiging. In a study on mice, exercise on wheels for just 11 days led to a significant increase in the UCP1 expression. This suggests that physical activity increases the number of mitochondria and the expression of the marker for UCP1, which is typically associated with brown adipocytes. As more mitochondria enter the white tissue, more beige cells arise.

Another reason exercise promotes the development of beige adipose tissue is due to an increase of irisin. Irisin is a hormone that increases fat loss, glucose tolerance, and energy expenditure. Irisin levels are directly related to muscle mass. In a study using murine cells, differentiated cells were incubated with irisin alongside a control group that was not. Irisin led to upregulations of the markers for brown adipose tissue in the white adipose tissue, including UCP-1 and PCG-1A. The researchers also performed the study on live mice and found similar results. These studies suggest that exercise fights obesity not just by reducing the number and size of fat cells but also through switching at least some of the white adipose tissue to the healthier beige variety.

Environment

Another way to stimulate the production of beige adipose tissue is through your environment, including your social activities. One study on rats found that enriched living conditions simulated the upregulation of PRDM16 and UCP1 levels, suggesting beiging. This study defined enriched living as social interactions, increased physical activity, and new experiences. Although physical activity played a role in the environment, it was not the sole reason for the beiging effect.

The researchers looked at several groups, including those with an enriched living situation that did not have as extensive of an exercise regimen. That group still lost weight, although those who did have access to an exercise wheel had a more effective browning. This suggests that social interactions, learning new information, and trying new hobbies could also help boost the beiging effect, even if your lifestyle changes do not include physical activity.

Capsaicin

Capsaicin has a reputation for assisting in weight loss, and this might be due to its ability to facilitate thermogenesis and beiging. In terms of the beiging properties of food ingredients, capsaicin is one of the best studied, and the one that has advanced into human studies. Capsaicin is the component of hot red peppers that give them their spicy properties. A closely related particle is capsinoids, which are found in the less-spicy red peppers. Both have demonstrated the capacity to enhance fat oxidation and increase energy expenditure to aid in weight loss. One way they do this is through brown adipose tissue. In one study, the group with positive markers of brown adipose tissue had a 3-fold increase in their energy expenditure compared with those who did not after consuming capsaicin. Another study found that consuming 9 mg per day of capsinoids in a capsule form for a period of six weeks led to increased activity in brown adipose tissue, even in the group with low activity levels, when exposed to cold temperatures. Similar thermogenic effects in connection with capsaicin have been demonstrated in beige adipose tissue as well. One study demonstrated that capsaicin inhibited adipogenesis and increased the expression of browning-specific genes in white adipose tissue, especially at higher doses.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids 

You have probably heard time and time again to get your omega-3 fatty acids to gain from their anti-inflammatory and other health-promoting properties. Another reason to do this is to boost the conversion of your white adipose tissue into beige or brown. Specifically, you want to consume eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), a type of omega-3 fatty acid. One study found that after treating fully differentiated human white adipose subcutaneous tissue cells of women who were overweight with 100 – 200mg of EPA for 24 hours, there were alterations in the mRNA expressions of the genes suggestive of beiging. There was an increase in the number of mitochondria and the gene expressions for fatty acid oxidation, which burns fat as energy. There was also an induction of specific genes of beige, including PRDM16 and UCP1, as well as expression of specific markers for beige cells.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin whose metabolites, such as retinoic acid and other retinoids, play a key role in differentiation of tissues and cells around the body. The body stores excess vitamin A and its metabolites in the liver and adipose tissue, and it might do more than simply sit in the adipose tissue. A certain metabolite, all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA), has been shown to stimulate beiging. In one study, cells treated with ATRA had an increased number of mitochondria and UCP1 expression. The study also looked at the effects of ATRA on mice.

A group of mice consumed feed with 5 IU of vitamin A per kilocalorie and six of the mice received subcutaneous amounts of ATRA at levels of 50 mg/kg of body weight per day (this would be equivalent to .375 grams in a 165-pound person, which is quite high). Despite not reaching statistical significance, there was a definite increase in mitochondrial gene expression in the treated mice white adipose tissue. This study looked at a specific metabolite of vitamin A, rather than vitamin A. However, it does suggest that beiging could be another possible benefit of consuming sufficient vitamin A in your diet, although more research needs to be done to confirm the exact dose.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA)

Alpha-lipoic acid is an important antioxidant naturally produced by the body, which supports mitochondrial health. It demonstrates anti-obesity properties, and this might be due to its beiging effect on the body.  A study looked at the effects of subcutaneous adipocytes treated with ALA at doses of 100 and 250 uM over a period of 24 hours. After treatment, the cells had increased mitochondria numbers and markers of brown adipocytes.

Resveratrol

As with many of the above, consuming resveratrol increased the markers of brown adipocytes, including UCP1 and PRDM16, in white adipose tissue. In a study on female mice consuming a high-fat diet, researchers gave one group 0.1 percent resveratrol in their feed and the control group did not have any resveratrol. The researchers also performed a similar experiment on cultured cells. Their findings pointed to the beiging of the white adipose tissues based on the increased markers.

Curcumin 

Curcumin has numerous health benefits, thanks to its anti-inflammatory and other health-promoting properties. Additionally, it has the power to induce the beiging of adipose tissue. In one study, curcumin was found to increase the number of mitochondria in the white adipose tissue. It also increased the ability of the cells to perform beta-oxidation and augment lipolysis. Additionally, there was increased expression of UCP1 and other specific makers of brown adipose tissue. This finding suggests it converts the white adipose tissue into the more fat-burning and healthier beige or brown adipose tissue. Curcumins fat-fighting benefits do not stop simply at converting white brown tissue to beige or brown; it also has the potential to inhibit the genesis of adipose tissue as another way to help combat obesity.

Berberine

The herb berberine has many health benefits, including helping prevent and treat diabetes. One reason for its efficacy in weight regulation and diabetes prevention might stem from its effects on beiging white adipocytes. A study on db/db mice, which are a variety that has impaired glucose tolerance and marked obesity, treated one group of mice with berberine. This group lost weight despite no significant difference in caloric intake. The berberine reduced the size of the white adipose cells, and it activated AMPK, which increases the energy production of adipocytes. There was also an increased number of mitochondria, suggesting beiging.

There are other ways to stimulate the production of brown or beige fat cells, including cold temperatures, conjugated linoleic acid, and green tea. Many of the studies on beiging thus far are still in the in vitro and animal trial phase. However, there are promising results demonstrating that there are ways in which you might be able to increase the number of brown and beige fat cells in your body, especially in your subcutaneous white adipose tissue.

HCG Diet and Exercise: recommendations and guidelines

HCG Diet and Exercise: Guidelines, Warnings and Recommendations

Weight gain during HCG is frustrating – this is why we recommend VLA BioImpedance Screenings every week or two so that you KNOW what is going on in your body….  This article explains WHY we can have a temporary weight gain with exercise.  Knowledge is power.  Know what is going on in your body – and then the motivation will continue!

As with most things, there are multiple views on whether exercise should be incorporated as part of the HCG diet. Even among those who do recommend exercise, there is no consensus on the intensity, duration, frequency, and types of exercise that should be included.

On the HCG diet it is completely possible to lose a significant amount of weight with very little exercise, or even without exercising at all. In fact, some clinics and practitioners recommend absolutely no exercise. For many dieters, especially those who detest physical activity, this is one of their favorite features of the HCG diet. Many dieters have been told that told repeatedly that their weight problems are mostly caused by laziness or lack of exercise. It can certainly feel relieving to be “allowed” or advised to avoid exercise.

The extra fat deposits you are trying to rid yourself of through the HCG diet are great deposits of energy. While on the HCG diet, your body will be breaking down these deposits. The presence of HCG allows this breakdown to occur more easily. Vigorous exercise demands quickly available energy. Even though your body will have a lot of potential energy from fat deposits more readily available, the energy from it cannot be metabolized quickly enough to supply heavily utilized muscles.

Most HCG dieters will track their weight closely. Weighing in daily, or sometimes multiple times per day. Increases in weight during phase 2 of the HCG diet can be alarming. How can you gain weight when only consuming 500 calories in a day?! The breakdown of muscles that occurs from intense workouts can and usually will cause inflammation in the affected muscles. Your body will absorb additional water to aid in the repair of these muscles and this extra water can easily show up in increased weight from one day to the next. The weight will almost always level out over time, but the psychological effect of the temporary weight increase can be difficult for dieters.

Dr. Simeons recommended only light exercise such as walking and light biking. This exercise should only be done at low intensity and for fairly short periods of time. He noted the weight gain caused by vigorous exercise in this way:

“…the weight can temporarily increase — paradoxical though this may sound — after an exceptional physical exertion of long duration leading to a feeling of exhaustion. A game of tennis, a vigorous swim, a run, a ride on horseback or a round of golf do not have this effect; but a long trek, a day of skiing, rowing or cycling or dancing into the small hours usually result in a gain of weight on the following day, unless the patient is in perfect training. In patients coming from abroad, where they always use their cars, we often see this effect after a strenuous day of shopping on foot, sightseeing and visits to galleries and museums. Though the extra muscular effort involved does consume some additional calories, this appears to be offset by the retention of water which the tired circulation cannot at once eliminate.”

Dr. Simeons also noted that patients who insisted on exercising vigorously while on the program often overate because of exercise-induced hunger, stalling weight loss or even leading to weight gain. Many practitioners and dieters take this statement to mean that all exercise is forbidden during phase 2.

Exercise is not forbidden but must be undertaken with great care during the strict diet (Core Phase or Phase 2). Deliberate workouts during the HCG diet should be tailored to each individual’s capabilities. Each person will have a different level of fitness, different strengths, different preferences, and different abilities.

A dieter with a body that is already accustomed to intense exercise will be able to handle exercise much more easily than one who is very out of shape. A fit body will not sustain as much intramuscular damage and its associated inflammatory effects from exercise that a non-fit body would.

In general it is good to take a very cautious approach to exercise while on the HCG diet. You will be taking in very little food, very little fuel for your body to use to power your muscles during exercise. Fat will be released and metabolized for energy, but carbohydrates are a much more easily and quickly metabolized fuel. They are the body’s main source of energy especially during very intense and very long duration exercise. Without them, exhaustion and fatigue occur much more quickly, often along with dizziness and shortness of breath. Another side effect of lack of carbohydrates during vigorous exercise is an extremely strong feeling of hunger, usually with cravings for carbohydrate-laden foods. All of this can work together synergistically against the dieter. An exhausted, light-headed person has a much harder time resisting the body’s increased demands for carbohydrate rich foods!

If you are used to intense exercise already, you can try to continue with what your are doing, but most likely you will lack the necessary energy and/or will not recover as quickly as usual while you are on phase 2 of the HCG diet. If you are not used to intense exercise, do not attempt it during the HCG diet!

If you are used to light or moderate exercise, you may continue as before, possibly shortening the duration or intensity of your workouts as necessary. As with intense exercisers, watch for overtraining and energy levels. Dial down your training if you see any signs of it.

If you are not used to exercise, now is probably not the best time to start.

Some Sample Exercises During Phase 2

Low Intensity (OK for everyone, but always monitor for signs of overtraining)

  • Walking
  • Bicycling
  • Yoga
  • Gentle swimming
  • Lawn mowing

    Medium Intensity (Only for those already accustomed to medium intensity workouts monitor for overtraining)

  • Jogging
  • Snow shoveling
  • Lap swimming
  • Moving furniture

    High intensity (Not Generally Recommended for Phase 2 of HCG Diet)

  • Heavy weight training
  • Running
  • Crossfit
  • Triathlons
  • Sprinting

Fasting Benefits at New Leaf

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

Another HCG Tip…

One of Dr Simeon’s proven techniques for maintaining our weight during and after consolidation is intermittent fasting. During a fasting day we drink plenty of herbal teas, drink lots of lemon water, utilise powdered supplements (greens, magnesiums, n acetyl-carnitine) and then eat a normal protein & veg meal at night time.

This is like a fat-cell-resizing process! Any time we’ve weighed more than 900g more than our end-weight (end of HCG – on the first day of regular eating – after your 2 days off HCG drops still on 500 cals per day) we do a fasting day to reset our fat cells!

Key reasons HCG rapid weight loss doesn’t ‘feel’ like it’s working …. by New Leaf HCG Specialists!

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015
There are some key reasons HCG doesn’t feel like it’s working – come on in and have a VLA Consultation so you KNOW what’s going on…
* you’re cheating!!!! once you’re eating over 500 calories daily, you can switch off the brown-fat-burning then you’re starving and weak! This is where people really struggle to stay motivated…
* you’re not drinking enough purified water and herbal teas – when we’re overweight our hunger/thirst mechanisms are out of whack – it’s time to retrain your tummy and brain!
* eating too much – if you add a little protein, a little extra veg, an extra fruit or grissini stick – you won’t get the results you’re after.  Dr Simeons trialled this process on over 10,000 people.  Stick to the rules, get the results!
* your body is making muscle out of the mitochondria being released from your brown fat … did you know you get about 1000+ calories from your brown fat?  This is why we’re not extra hungry on HCG.
* your cells are becoming more hydrated – obesity makes us incredibly dehydrated
* your body is moving toxins from your fat cells – then your body stores fluid to dilute the toxins before shifting them out of the body…
When you do regular VLA’s you know what’s going on, you stress less, and your feel confident that your body is in BETTER HEALTH than before HCG.   Our VLA consults give you the information you need to keep the process a motivating one!

Shorter rounds of HCG Rapid Weight Loss Process: losing 2-6 kilos is easy!

Monday, January 12th, 2015

I’m about to do a short round of HCG to shift 3.5 kilos….. it’s been a busy and delicious month!

I get the question about doing a shorter round of the HCG diet all the time:  personally I’ve done shorter rounds many times simply to shift a couple of kilos when life has been busy, I’m failing to exercise, I’ve had too many parties, meetings one after another – and they all build up. People with only 3-6 kilos to lose don’t necessarily need to do the full round of 23-4o days.  Brown fat builds up in times of stress, times of heavy calorie intake, low exercise times.

So can you still do the diet if you don’t have that much weight to lose? And what is the HCG diet plan for those shorter rounds?

Well to start off, yes, you can a shorter round no problem. I’ve heard from purist that a 26 day round is the shortest you should ever go. But I whole-heartedly disagree. First off, I’ve done shorter rounds, and I’ve never seen any issues with anyone doing a shorter round in the four years I’ve been helping people with the diet.

So yes, you can do a shorter round.

If you have, say, 4 kilos to lose what you should do is plan on about 20 days of the diet. So get enough HCG to last you at least 20 days. People who have a lot more weight to lose will lose 4 kilos in a week or so, but when you are so close to your goal weight you tend to lose a bit slower and it’s nice to plan ahead and not get caught without enough HCG drops.

Then just start your round as you would any round, do the 2 loading days, then on the third day you start the low calorie phase. Keep going on this phase until you reach the end of your round or you reach your goal weight. If you hit your goal weight on say day 15, then stop the drops on that day, do 3 days of the diet without taking the HCG drops to make sure it’s out of your system, then jump into the maintenance phase.

Once you are in maintenance you should still do the 3 weeks of maintenance. Yes, do 3 whole weeks even though you did a shorter round. You need to give yourself time to set that weight point so you don’t go back to your old weight. There is no point in losing weight if you don’t keep it off, so take maintenance phase seriously.

Now if you have say 2 kilos to lose, that’s probably not enough weight to go to the trouble of starting the diet. I did a round to lose 3.5 kilos but already had left over HCG from my first round so I used it up. But I don’t think I’d go buy more if I only had 2 kilos to lose:  I’d probably do the Shake It or Keto System over a couple of weeks.

One thing I do want to warn you about is don’t compare yourself to others while on the diet. Especially if you are so close to your goal weight. As I mentioned earlier, the closer you are to your goal the slower your weight loss will be. But that’s normal so just be aware of it. Also realize that you will get to your goal weight as long as you keep going and don’t quit. Quitting won’t get you to your weight loss goals. So just keep going until you hit that end result you are looking for.

New Year HCG Weight Loss … Get your body back now!!

Thursday, January 16th, 2014
My journey … 2014
1st journal!
So I’m my first week down on HCG this year! After my 2 month binge period (Holidays, Christmas, New Year, Birthdays, Get togethers – lots of excuses!!)  I was 69.5 kilos. A lot of this weight was put on with lots of naughtiness: lots of sugar, overeating, Xmas goodies, lollies, alcohol, cheesecakes, treats (many many of them!)… This weight is very ‘dense’ and hard to move, but it’s shifting!

I’m doing the RFM HCG Drops 10 drops 3 x daily; VLA Bio-impedance screenings daily; supplements for my liver, gut, energy levels and lots …of saunas!

I did HCG half heartedly last year after returning from long service leave (long lovely holiday!) but didn’t maintain the weight, didn’t do consolidation and didn’t follow the diet propertly…  Ah well, lost about 5 kilos!
My favourite supplements (for me) on HCG are:
  • Thermoburn – supports abdominal tummy fat – really tough to shift.  1 tab 2-4 x daily
  • Ultra Flora Immune or Probex – increase good gut flora – crucial for helping to shift the toxins from the gut
  • Lipogen or Livatone – both liver and gall bladder support.  I suspect I have gallstones so I’ll need to do my gall bladder flush during consolidation (there’s lots of olive oil as part of the process so you can’t do it during HCG)
  • Lipoic Acid or Glutathione – supports fat and water soluble toxin release
  • Resist X – energy production when we’re feeling sluggish
  • Resilian or Relaxan to help me de-stress and sleep well

 The excess fat is 2-part on the Bio-impedance screening. It’s not only the ‘excess fat’ portion of the test, but it’s also the excess ATM, Active Tissue Mass, which is ‘tummy fat’ – very vascular and very hormonally dangerous. It’s the reason tummy fat is linked to heart disease, diabetes and cancer, not to mention adrenal exhaustion and thyroid issues.

Obviously the past 5 days my weight has been a challenge – purely on the scales, and yet the fat mass has continued to lower every day. I have more ‘fluid’ and ‘muscle’ in the body, but the fat mass is reducing.

This is why regular VLA Bio-impedance screenings are so crucial to keep us on track during HCG. Not daily of course, I can, so I do, and I love the numbers!

I’ll keep you posted…

16/1 Today 65.9 kilos
15/1 Yesterday 66.3 kilos 4.83 kilos excess fat
14/1 Tuesday 66.4 kilos 5.31 kilos excess fat     *  2 extra grissini sticks (oops)
13/1 Monday 66.3 kilos 6.09 kilos excess fat

12/1 Sunday 66 kilos 7.33 kilos excess fat
11/1 Saturday 66.6 kilos 7.29 kilos excess fat    * ate twice the amount of steak at night at a friend’s place & glass of red wine
10/1 Friday 67.6 kilos 6.81 kilos excess fat
9/1 Thursday 68.9 kilos 7.54 kilos excess fat

8/1 Wednesday
2nd BINGE DAY 69.5 kilos 8.73 kilos excess fat!

HCG Rapid Weight Loss: Safe, Easy, Effective, PROVEN!!!

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

HCG:  the safest, fastest, easiest way that we’ve ever found to lose weight IF it’s done properly.  Without detoxification, balancing hormones, HCG can make people a toxic and emotional mess.  At New Leaf, we use a combination with natural therapies which:

*  detoxification supplements which detox fat and blood and toxins are being released (hugely important to stop rebound weight issues)

*  do VLA Bio-impedance Screenings so that you KNOW what is going on in your body – fat mass, muscle mass, inflammation, toxicity, metabolism.  One of the worst things about weight loss is hitting those ‘stalls’.  With VLA Bio-impedance Screenings, we can see if it’s because you’re gaining muscle mass, getting more hydrated, releasing toxins and storing fluid to dilute them…  All of which gives you the information you need in order to stay focussed, positive and switched on.  Most naturopaths do not have our experience in dissecting this information for you – and don’t know what to do specifically on HCG.  We’re HCG specialists at New Leaf!

*  balance blood sugar:  some people need extra support.  If blood sugar isn’t balanced we can feel hungry (or starving), have highs and lows of energy, poor sleep/insomnia, and feel stressed.

*  break down scar tissue in the abdomen:  With Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage we can ensure your organs through the abdomen (liver, gall bladder, kidneys, adrenals, reproductive organs, bowels, bladder, spleen, pancreas, lungs) are functioning properly.  Amazing treatment protocol that improved function of all of these major organs in your body.

*  kinesiology for self sabotage (ever experienced that with weight issues??!!).  Put on weight, sabotage your whole day?  Can’t stop eating once you start?  Let’s start working on those self-beliefs that don’t serve you for your goals:  “I’m not worth it”  “I can’t do it”  “I can’t do it without support”  “It’s too hard making two meals at night time”.  If you think about sabotage, they’re generally just thoughts that don’t serve us and don’t help us to move forwards in life.
