Atkins advocates to slather mayonnaise all over salmon and tuna and douse asparagus and lobster with butter while friends look on in envy Shades of the 1973 movie Sleeper in which Woody Allen plays a 20th century Rip Van Winkle who awakens after a couple of hundred years to a world in which fatty delights like steak and cream pies are deemed beneficial to one’s healthAlas Sleeper was and is a fantasy The indictment of excessive amounts of saturated fat–the kind found in steaks and butter–as a major contributor to heart disease and stroke has not changed and seems unlikely to do so A formidable lineup of experts holds to the low-fat approach none more tenaciously than Dr Dean Ornish whose regimen prescribes no more than 10% of daily calories from fat With the latest resurgence of the Atkins program the clash of the two theories is sharper than ever–low fat vs low carbs Ornish vs Atkins But here is what is new and somewhat startling: there are hints that Atkins may have struck a vein of truth–hints that are intriguing enough to convince some mainstream obesity experts that the approach merits more serious consideration "Is it just that the Atkins diet is monotonous and so people eat fewer calories" wonders Dr Samuel Klein director of the Center for Human Nutrition at Washington University in St Louis Mo Or is there something more interesting going on Something unexpected about food itself perhaps or the way we eat it or even what our genes have programmed us to likeOf course the mere suggestion that the Atkins diet and others like it are worthy of scientific attention still makes many experts bristle Yet it is also clear that the low-fat paradigm has developed some cracks in its facade It turns out that not all fats are bad for you Those found in fish nuts and certain vegetables may actually increase your chances of living a good long life By the same token not all diets that are low in fat are necessarily healthy–as anyone who has ever truly considered the difference between a low-fat banana cream pie and a banana could tell youAbout one thing however there is no dispute As a society we are clearly in a state of nutritional crisis and in need of radical remedies The statistics are sobering After 30 years of seemingly solid advice aimed at lowering dietary fat Americans have grown collectively fatter than ever Today more than 60% of adults in the US are classified as overweight or obese So many children have become so heavy that pediatricians are now facing an epidemic of Type 2 diabetes and hypertension–diseases that are closely associated with overweight and that were unheard of among youngsters just a generation agoThe change has been so swift and so pervasive that no simple explanation is possible Maybe we didn’t understand all the ramifications when we jumped on the low-fat bandwagon We also failed to factor in suburban sprawl and six-lane expressways school cafeterias and fast-food chains movie theaters and television advertisers and food processors "We live in a toxic environment" says Kelly Brownell director of the Yale University Center for Eating and Weight Disorders "Physical activities have been engineered out of day-to-day life and the food environment grows worse by the day We took Joe Camel off the billboards but we celebrate Ronald McDonald"RelatedMotto5 Things I Learned Trying to Avoid the Free Junk Food in My Office for a WeekMotto5 Things I Learned Trying to Avoid the Free Junk Food in My Office for a WeekOn one level there is no mystery about why we as a society are fat We are fat because we consume too many calories and expend too few Though it is true that the proportion of fat in our diet has fallen from 40% in 1990 to roughly 34% today the calories available in the food we consume have gone up from 3100 calories per capita per day in the 1960s to 3700 in the 1990s according to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) "And that alone" says New York University nutritionist Marion Nestle "is sufficient to explain the obesity epidemic"But there is a deeper question–one that has plagued anyone who has ever struggled to take off more than a few pounds And that is: How do some folks manage to live in the same "toxic environment" and never gain weight Indeed the question of why so many of us are fat is just half the puzzle "You can just as easily flip it around" says Jeffrey Friedman a molecular geneticist at Rockefeller University "and ask why–despite equal access to calories–is anyone thin"The quest to answer this double-sided question is in its earliest stages Already however a series of fascinating insights into the biology of obesity has emerged Behind our broadening behinds and widening waistlines scientists say lies a complex array of genes that directly and indirectly links our gut to our brain These genes honed by millions of years of evolution appear to have betrayed many of us in the 21st century worldScientists have long suspected that human beings come into the world equipped with dozens perhaps hundreds of genes and associated hormones that regulate what scientists call the energy-balance equation On one side of the equation are the calories we consume On the other side are the calories we burn–through physical activity as well as whatever is needed just to keep the body in good working order Anything left over gets converted to body fatWith the notable exception of insulin which helps the body process sugars from carbohydrates the identity of most of the major players in this biochemical balancing act could for years only be guessed at The first big breakthrough occurred in 1995 when the Rockefeller’s Friedman stunned the scientific world by announcing that he and his colleagues had discovered a hormone produced by fat cells that actually caused fat to melt away at least in laboratory mice Genetically engineered mice that lacked the gene for making this hormone developed ravenous appetites and became grossly obese When these same mice were injected with the missing hormone they shrugged off a third of the weight they had gained The researchers dubbed the new hormone leptin after leptos which is Greek for thinAlthough leptin has since turned into something of a disappointment as an obesity treatment for humans–the vast majority of obese people turn out to have normal leptin levels–its discovery touched off a scientific gold rush that has yet to abate Competing research teams in the US and Europe have so far identified at least half a dozen other compounds that have surprising power to regulate appetite Researchers at London’s Imperial College of Medicine showed just last month that one of those hormones dubbed PYY3-36 actually promotes a sense of fullness after a mealEach of these compounds is slightly different and scientists are just beginning to figure out how they all work together (see diagram) What is clear is that all of them are important nodes along an elaborate network of interconnecting pathways that feed into and out of the hypothalamus a brain structure that is the control center for weight regulation The body produces hormones that activate the hypothalamus The neurons in the hypothalamus send new messages back to the body And just like subliminal messages spliced into a filmstrip these signals powerfully affect our behavior even when we are not aware of themThus while we read the paper or carry on a conversation the hypothalamus–activated by leptin or some other compound–orders cells and tissues to ratchet up energy expenditure The body responds by idly fidgeting to raise metabolic rates or by increasing blood flow to the outer layers of the skin in an effort dissipate heat In this way we carry out a process known as thermogenesis which is the body’s way of burning excess caloriesRelatedadvice12 Ways to Have a Happier and Healthier Yearadvice12 Ways to Have a Happier and Healthier YearIntriguingly some people seem to be more efficient at thermogenesis than others Researchers led by Dr Bradford Lowell at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston last month pinpointed three genes that may account for at least some of that variation Mice that lack the genes they reported in Science grow grossly obese when fed a high-calorie diet enriched with fat and sucrose By contrast normal mice fed the same diet gain very modest amounts of weightThe fact that obesity has genetic roots does not explain the larger mystery If obesity is so bad for us–and there is no question it is–then why are so many people susceptible to layering on excess fat The answer may well lie in what is referred to as the Thrifty Gene Hypothesis which supposes that obesity genes have been maintained in the human population because they conferred an appreciable survival advantageRather like the ant in an Aesop’s fable people with thrifty genotypes–wisely it might be argued–prepare for hard times by consuming and storing more calories than they expend In this fashion they create a reservoir of fat that comes in handy when food grows scarce It’s easy to imagine that repeated famines over the course of human development practically forced the biological system for regulating weight to skew strongly toward resisting weight loss rather than protecting against weight gainIn principle at least no one should ever become obese That’s because the genetic system for regulating weight would seem to be exquisitely tuned Researchers calculate that a man who keeps his weight stable at 175 lbs will take in a million calories a year on average and will also expend a million calories "Think about it" says Dr Michael Schwartz head of clinical nutrition at the University of Washington in Seattle "How do you match a million with a million It doesn’t happen just by chance"Leptin which exercises an influence on appetite and thermogenesis is thought to be key to maintaining this balance For as we layer on fat we pump out more leptin which signals the hypothalamus that it’s time to accelerate energy output and brake caloric intake The problem is people who gain weight have now been shown to develop a remarkable resistance to leptin’s power The fatter they get and the more leptin they make the more impervious the hypothalamus becomes Eventually the hypothalamus interprets the elevated level of leptin as normal–and forever after misreads the drops in leptin caused by weight loss as a starvation signal This phenomenon provides a biochemical explanation for why so many of those who lose weight end up putting it back on Our bodies backed by millions of years of evolution fight us at every turnSo what causes leptin resistance The answer may turn out to be exceedingly complicated Not only do the other hormones of the digestive system play a role but also researchers are learning that they must account for the influence of such mood-altering neurotransmitters as dopamine and serotonin as well as the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol And then there are melanocortins brain chemicals whose power to affect weight loss and gain is just now coming into focusGenes of course do not make us fat They merely set up a susceptibility to gaining weight under certain conditions–and without question those conditions are now ubiquitous In essence says Dr Walter Willett of the Harvard School of Public Health sedentary lifestyles and a cornucopia of food have transformed people into the equivalent of corn-fed cattle confined in pens "We have created the great American feedlot" he saysOur Stone Age ancestors certainly did not live in a feedlot They had to kill and butcher their meat-on-the-hoof during marathon hunts that lasted for days sometimes weeks They had to ramble for miles cross-country to gather wild fruits grains and nuts and to dig underground tubers If they wanted to eat something sweet they had to locate a beehive smoke out the bees and retrieve the honey often by climbing up a tree or chopping it downRelatedhealthThe 10 Essential Rules of Gym EtiquettehealthThe 10 Essential Rules of Gym EtiquetteLikewise the components of our diet have undergone a radical change The flesh of the wild game that made up our ancestors’ diet had just 3% to 4% fat whereas prime beef has 30% or more And prior to the domestication of crops such as wheat and corn humans consumed a variety of wild grains filled with fiber which slows digestion The process of highly refining foods which allows carbohydrates to be quickly absorbed by the digestive system wasn’t widespread As Rutgers University anthropologist Lionel Tiger puts it human metabolism "did not evolve for prime beef but one would surmise neither did it evolve to eat heaping plates of white rice and pasta" Nor heaping plates of doughnuts and chocolate-covered croissants for that matterWhy then do we like these foods so much For answers researchers are once again turning to laboratory animals which exhibit many of the same dietary proclivities we do Rats for example will labor mightily to obtain a sugar pellet even after they have dined on rat chow and aren’t particularly hungry The reason thinks Allen Levine director of the University of Minnesota’s obesity center has a lot to do with sugar’s impact on mood-enhancing circuits in the brain Sugar gives rats–and by extension humans–a buzzThere is also reason to think that our penchant for making unhealthy choices might be enhanced by the abundance of particular foods Consider the results of an experiment recently conducted at Philadelphia’s Monell Chemical Senses Center Rats given one cup each of fat protein and carbohydrate were found to make balanced diet choices eating a tad more protein than carbohydrates and a tad more carbohydrates than fats But rats presented with more cups of fat and carbohydrates than protein dramatically increased their consumption of the former while sharply curtailing their intake of the latter–to the point in some cases that the rats became protein deficient Why would rats do this Perhaps because their brains are hard-wired to take advantage of sudden windfalls of food and in the wild of course such windfalls do not occur every dayThey do however in restaurants Soft drinks are now delivered in one-liter cups observes Judith Stern vice president of the American Obesity Association Even the venerable Joy of Cooking has capitulated to the trend; recipes that used to provide meals for six now feed only four So cheap are carbohydrates and fats that supersizing costs the food industry next to nothingAdults are free agents They can overeat and gain weight if they want to But perhaps what is most disturbing about their overeating is that they are unwittingly and in myriad ways passing on that tendency to children It’s not just that children pick up their parents’ bad habits There is growing evidence that what you eat early in life can permanently boost your body’s desire for foodIf we were to start from scratch how would we design a diet to keep our weight under control For starters we could concentrate on diets geared for life rather than quick and easy weight loss "The people I see are great dieters beautiful dieters" says Dr Cheryle Hart founder and medical director of the Wellness Workshop in Spokane Wash "They can deny themselves but only for so long Then they snap We all would" Second we could stop paying such close attention to every jot and tittle in the diet debate It will take decades for researchers to unravel all the reasons we eat what we do and why we like to eat so much of it But a few insights are emerging that should point us in the right direction as long as we don’t turn them into inviolable dietary lawsNot all carbohydrates seem to have been created equal So-called simple carbohydrates those found in white bread and cake are so quickly digested by the body that they trigger a very rapid rise in the levels of glucose in the blood The pancreas releases a massive amount of insulin to mop up the excess Soon enough however blood glucose levels plummet to the point where our brains may feel woozy we become excessively hungry and are driven to eat again Complex carbohydrates on the other hand particularly those rich in fiber do not elicit the same kind of spike-and-crash responseRelatedhealth5 Reasons to Spend More Time Outside—Even When It’s Coldhealth5 Reasons to Spend More Time Outside—Even When It’s ColdResearchers refer to the amount of glucose a single serving of a particular food releases in the bloodstream as its glycemic load And there is growing evidence that we can manipulate it somewhat to control our hunger Broccoli and peanuts for example have a low glycemic load while instant rice and baked potatoes have an extremely high one Avoiding sugar-laden processed foods and increasing the consumption of fruits and vegetables is a first step toward sensible eating says Dr David Ludwig director of the Optimal Weight for Life Program at Children’s Hospital Boston Choosing small portions of pasta and bread made from coarsely ground wheat is a good second stepDairy products and milk–which has been increasingly replaced by soft drinks in the diets of both children and adults–are also fast emerging as dietary "goods" despite the fact that a 12-oz glass of skim milk has almost as many calories as a 12-oz can of Coke The reason may have to do with calcium says Michael Zemel professor of nutrition at the University of Tennessee In the absence of calcium levels of the hormone calcitriol increase Among other things calcitriol shuts off the mechanisms that break down fat and activates those that make itFats too are gaining new respect Olives nuts avocados and other foods that are rich in mono- and polyunsaturated fat belong in our diets many nutritionists believe Not only do these good fats help lower the level of LDL or bad cholesterol but they are also essential for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins like ESo what would an optimal postmodern diet look like Chances are it wouldn’t look like the food pyramid the official government guidelines released by the usda in 1992 Indeed the food pyramid is due for an overhaul in 2003–although no one is yet willing to give any details If Harvard’s Willett has his way the pyramid will make a greater distinction between the types of fats and carbs we should and shouldn’t eat Willett unlike the usda does not lump most carbohydrates at the pyramid’s base or all fats at the pyramid’s eat-sparingly pinnacle In fact Willett places good fats–those from vegetables and fish–at the base and good carbohydrates–from whole-grain versions of bread and pasta–side by side at the base Carbohydrates with a high glycemic load join saturated fats at the topThe question is whether the addition of these new concepts–glycemic load a redrawn food pyramid–can restore sanity to a collective eating binge that has spiraled out of control And if not then what can An appetite suppressant that makes people eat less but has no side effects A thermogenesis pill that one can take after overindulging in ice creamPerhaps the future will bring better medications at least for people who are morbidly obese But for the broader population the remedy must be sought elsewhere And as we can’t change the genes we are born with we are left with one alternative–to change the environment that our genes have proved so ill equipped to handle We the species that invented barbecuing that domesticated corn and wheat and that created foie gras and French fries have powered through a series of food revolutions says Oxford University historian Felipe Fernandez-Armesto in his recently published book Near a Thousand Tables (The Free Press) The purpose of the next revolution he predicts will be to undo the excesses of the last–With reporting by David Bjerklie and Sora Song/New York Dan Cray/Los Angeles and Elisabeth Kauffman/NashvilleIts a drizzly chilly February day at the Kowloon Cricket Club The century-old colonial institution lies in the lee of People’s Liberation Army barracks and a cricket ball’s throw from where unsmiling communist troops shoulder arms and go through their morning drills Hong Kong’s national cricket team is doing a spot of fielding practice Then the drizzle becomes a downpour and practice is over "International teams would be able to just [keep practicing] indoors" says a frustrated wicketkeeper Jamie Atkinson But in Hong Kong the worlds fourth most densely populated territory the idea of there being such vast voluminous things as indoor cricket facilities is absurd Such outdoor cricket facilities that are here only exist because rapacious property developers haven’t figured out a way to get their hands on them yet There is only one ground in Hong Kong certified by the International Cricket Council (ICC) as fit for international competition Known as Mission Road or Tin Kwong Road it has spartan facilities for players no spectator seating and must share space with soccer games Grounds at private clubs like the Kowloon and Hong Kong cricket clubs which also have to accommodate the citys domestic leagues during several months of the year are too small to host international matches "We have very limited facilities" says Atkinson "For us to be where we are at the moment is quite spectacular" That’s an understatement Hong Kong currently sits in 12th position position in the world rankings in the game’s most popular format Twenty20 and it has reached this remarkable position by drawing on a nanoscopically small pool of players: there are just a few hundred regular adult players of the game in the city Virtually no Chinese who make up 94% of Hong Kong’s 72 million people are among them For the national squad that leaves a handful of local-born players of white South Asian or Eurasian origin Atkinson batsmen Chris Carter Sakhawat Ali Anshuman Rath or Mark Chapman to call on They are supplemented with expatriates from India Pakistan and Afghanistan This piratical bunch currently Hong Kong’s highest-ranked sports team kicks off its World Twenty20 championship campaign in India today as one of the sport’s rising global stars Just eight years ago in 2008 it languished in the World Cricket League’s Division Four rubbing shoulders with Tanzania and the British island dependency of Jersey "From a Hong Kong perspective its huge" Atkinsons teammate Mark Chapman says "Because people can see that cricket is alive and well [here]" But if the game is to grow further in the city and attract sponsors and more facilities space is not the only concern It needs Chinese faces There isn’t one in the Hong Kong side proper (Chapman who is half-Chinese comes closest along with veteran player and batting coach Ryan Campbell who has a Cantonese grandmother) Atkinsons successor as captain Tanwir Afzal is Pakistani-born and only moved to Hong Kong in 2008 having previously represented the Pakistan Under-19 side There is a Chinese development player Li Kai-ming but the 24-year-old right-hander is just one of six such players the rest of whom are not ethnically Chinese Part of the problem could be branding Cricket is known in Cantonese by the spectacularly unsexy name of wood ball and it is a bafflingly foreign pursuit in a society that has in fact no indigenous bat-and-ball games We dont really have a cricket-loving majority populace "The sad reality is that crickets been played in Hong Kong as long as its been played anywhere in the world" says Hong Kong Cricket Association (HKCA) CEO Tim Cutler citing an 1841 decree by British army chief General Lord Hill that all barracks including in colonial outposts like Hong Kong would have cricket grounds adjoining them "We cant really sit on an excuse saying that we havent had long enough here for the game to develop [among the local community]" Cutler says "I just think the development of Hong Kong as a British colony and the demographics and geography havent helped over time" A 33-year-old former marine insurance broker and self-confessed cricket fanatic Cutler moved to Hong Kong from Sydney in 2013 He was appointed as the HKCAs first-ever CEO nine months ago as part of an ongoing effort to professionalize the sport and recognizes that there is a lot of work to be done "We cant change anything thats happened in the past we can only look forward but I think cricket has a great opportunity now to really connect with the local community" he says "We dont really have a cricket-loving majority populace which means that we really need to tailor the sport to Hong Kong and not make Hong Kong fit the sport" The HKCA is trying to foster that connection with local communities and currently runs training programs in more than two dozen schools but the success and scope of the grassroots outreach faces several of the same issues encountered by the national team "Chinese kids find it difficult because these guys are so good" HKCA schools coach Asif Hussain says as he gestures towards his class for the day at a school in the far-flung neighborhood of Tuen Mun near the Chinese border His 12 students all South Asian are playing a makeshift game on the schools basketball court the biggest open space available amidst a cluster of residential buildings "Theyve all recently come back from India or Pakistan so they have some experience of playing cricket" Hussain says explaining that the gap between children from those countries where cricket has near-obsessive status and their local Chinese counterparts often becomes too vast to surmount "Its not that Chinese people dont ever play but the way the system is theyre not able to play" Having coached schools under the HKCA for more than eight years the trend he has seen among young Chinese cricket enthusiasts is that they are unable to sustain their interest and commitment "When they go into secondary school [they have] new subjects new teachers and a lot of pressure from parents as well" he says "The transition doesnt happen and with no opportunity to continue they lose interest There needs to be continuity" Cricket is also a time-consuming sport with even Twenty20 games lasting at least three hours As such it becomes the first casualty for youngsters under pressure to excel in academics while juggling multiple extracurricular activities "Even for a [Chinese] spectator" Hussain says "if he doesnt really know about it he cant really sit there for three hours for one innings and say Yeah its fun" Where the cricket clubs have no cricket grounds Few places encapsulate Hong Kong crickets twin battles of finding adequate facilities and engaging the local Chinese population like the Hong Kong’s second oldest cricket club the Craigengower Cricket Club (CCC) Despite its name the colonial-era private members club shoehorned between the citys Happy Valley Racecourse and the Hong Kong Football Club no longer has a cricket ground It was lost to development in 1976 Today its members practice in a concrete rectangular space retrofitted with turf carpets and side netting on the third floor of the clubhouse above the car park During half the week it doubles up as a golf driving-range These unpromising surroundings were where five years ago Hong Kongs first all-Chinese cricket team was founded Called CCC Hung See meaning “Lions” the team has steadily worked its way up the citys domestic leagues and attracted a faint smattering of Chinese interest "I started playing for Craigengower back in 1995 and back then there was only a handful of Chinese that played" says the teams captain Adrian Lee who picked up the game in Australia where he did most of his early schooling before returning to Hong Kong "Now when we play our opposition doesnt consider us an easy team to beat They take us seriously" A year after CCC Hung Sees inception the HKCA started its own all-Chinese squad called the Pioneers Overnight avenues for local involvement in the sport doubled and something seems to be happening The growth of the game among Chinese players over the past five years has been sizable enough to justify the formation of the semiprofessional HKCA Dragons team an all-Chinese development team in February 2015 Comprising a mix of players from the two existing Chinese domestic sides the Dragons play other domestic sides as well as lower-ranked international teams like China and Japan The aim of this setup is to produce more players like Li Kai-ming the national squad’s Chinese development player He was selected by the Sydney Sixers in Australias domestic Big Bash League as a “community rookie” for the current season and many in Hong Kong cricket are hoping that he will serve as an inspiration "We arent going to get to the national squad level overnight" says Lee the CCC team captain "But at least we have a pathway to improve" Womens cricket has proved more appealing to Chinese people on the other hand with ethnic Chinese players making up 70% of the current national squad Sahil Dutta the author of a chapter on China in the anthology Second XI: Cricket in its Outposts says: "According to those involved in the game in China women rather than men are more willing to embrace the unfamiliar" Hussain the HKCA school coach has a less fanciful theory "In womens cricket the skill gap is a lot less so Chinese girls get into it easily" he says "As long as youre a capable athlete you can keep up" Bringing aspiring Chinese cricketers into the fold of either gender is not only in the HKCAs best interests Hong Kong is a gateway into China and the worlds most populous nation as it does with so many other sectors represents a potential market of more than a billion people for the ICC and cricket China is an ICC affiliate member and hosted cricket as part of the 2010 Asian Games but the game is still far from attaining mass appeal Cutler the HKCA CEO is hoping that teams like Hong Kong will be the heralds of the ICCs desire to make cricket a truly global sport "We can really engage that sense of national pride in creating something that they can be proud of" he says "Cricket isnt necessarily the outcome but its actually the tool to bring about a positive change" Write to Rishi Iyengar at rishiiyengar@timeasiacomMinister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed has claimed that the current government led by President Muhammadu Buhari is working tirelessly redeem its electoral promises According to him contrary to what opposition and the enemies of the government are saying Buhari has been living up to expectation especially in the critical areas of developing the economy as well as fighting corruption and insecurity The Minister stated this in Abuja on Friday while signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the visiting Chinese Vice Minister of The State Council Information Office Mr Guo Weimin in the area of media and cultural relations He said “Contrary to the lies that are being purveyed daily in the Social Media this government has been working assiduously to redeem its electoral pledges Our fight against insecurity is yielding very positive results “Our fight against corruption is focused and is ongoing and we are resolute and we have resolved that we are going to fight corruption until corruption goes under We are happy that in this regards we have a very good partner in China because we are aware and we know how China fought corruption and how China is fighting corruption “We have succeeded in nursing a very sick economy and very soon Nigeria will get out of recession” he said The minister expressed optimism that some provisions of the MOU that encourage the news agencies of Nigeria and China to reflect in their reporting the social economic and cultural development in both countries will eliminate the phenomenon of fake news “This is significant because we are today in the era of fake news Unlike China the Social Media here is completely unrestrained Therefore it is important that you get your news directly from the official source” he said The Minister sought the support of China towards the training
