Obesity: The World’s #1 Healthy Problem

The obesity plague is no illusion.  It is costing Americans as much as $147 billion- and countless lives – each year.  Incredibly, two-thirds of American adults are either overweight or obese, and childhood obesity rates are triple what they were only a generation ago.  In fact, the obesity crisis has placed a crushing burden on our healthcare system and now has many experts expressing their belief that today’s generation of children will be the first to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents.  And the problem isn’t just America’s.  The same troubling rates are being seen in other areas of North America, Europe and other developed countries.  It truly is a worldwide epidemic (CNBC, 2010)

Covering the exploding obesity epidemic, a recent CNBC report wondered, “Why in a society obsessed with being thin, it has never been easier to be fat.”

These and other numbers that scientists and health experts are citing should make our skin crawl.  Most scary is that many experts feel that obesity is approaching heart disease as the number one killer disease in America.  It’s simple – obesity is killing us.

Free Radicals and Weight Loss: Connected at the Hip

“We need oxygen to live.  It travels from the lungs to every corner of the body, helping cells metabolize food into energy.  But, oxygen has a downside.  Normally, the molecules in our cells have a full set of electrons, which keep them stable (think of them as a fortress surrounding a castle).  But, when these molecules come into contact with oxygen (i.e., they are ‘oxidized’), they lose an electron, converting to an unstable type of molecule known as a free radical.  Free radicals, if left unchecked, assault whatever cell constituents are nearby, including proteins, fats, and DNJA,’ says Joe Vinson, Ph.D., a professor of chemistry at the University of Scranton.  ‘Once those molecules are attacked, their structure and function are changed and they don’t work as well’” (CNBC, 2010)

A big component of the obesity problem is the free radical problem.  Free radicals are “rogue” molecules that rob electrons from other molecules, which in turn become free radicals and “pinball” around the body, creating a continuous cycle of damage and destruction to our bodies’ cells, tissue and organs.  DNA is damaged, cells are destroyed , and body processes are disrupted.  The end results of free radical damage are some of today’s most obvious health problems – we are overweight, we look terrible, we feel terrible, and we are simply less healthy.

Our environment is literally assaulting us with toxins that cause free radicals.  These toxins are everywhere – in our foods, in our air, in our water, in our homes, offices and automobiles.  Now, scientists are telling us that the daily onslaught of free radicals is contributing to a growing waistline.  And, the studies are simply supporting what we see all around us.

Luckily, Mother Nature created an instant free radical fix to the free radical problem – antioxidants.  Antioxidants disable free radicals by donating electrons to replace those lost during oxidation, thereby protecting our cells and slowing the aging process.

And, to get the antioxidants we need, all we have to do is eat a wide variety of plants, fruits and other foods.  Antioxidants are super-potent nutrients that can neutralize free radicals and slow their destructive path.  They are the superheroes to the top 21st century health threats – heart disease, obesity, aging, and so forth – that all have ties to free radical damage.

The antioxidant Solution to Weight Control

The good news is that eating a diet rich in antioxidants can be one of the best ways you can lose those unwanted pounds.  Want to drop a few pant sizes?  Want to lose inches off your waist, thighs and arms?  Want to feel that surge of youthful energy?  Want to have a glowing skin?  What about sharper mental focus, or improved sexual health?  You can!  And, it’s with a high-antioxidant or high-ORAC diet.

Finally, scientists and dietitians are talking about it, the mainstream media is reporting it,  and authors are writing books about it.  But, Xocai has understood the importance of antioxidants for a long time.  In fact, Xocai has set the standard for testing and certification of the antioxidant content – in the form of an ORAC score – on its healthy chocolate products.  All Xocai products are tested for their ORCA score by Brunswick Labs, and independent laboratory that certifies the ORAC content of foods and products fro consumer education.

ORAC is the acronym for “oxygen radical absorbance capacity” and refers to the levels of antioxidant nutrients in a specific food.  Not surpriseingly, all of the Xocai products – including the High-Antioxidant Meal Replacement Shake – are some of the highest –scoring, certified  ORAC foods available today.  And, they are the perfect cornerstone for a high-antioxidant, ORAC-rich diet for losing weight and enhancing overall wellness.

“Several kinds of tests are used to measure a food’s antioxidant power, another reason for the multiplicity of findings.  The most popular test is Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC).  ORAC measure an antioxidant’s ability to protect against the most common free radical in human plasma.”  (CNN, 2008)

Numerous studies demonstrate that free radicals lead to unwanted weight gain.  For instance, researchers from the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University found a direct correlation between oxidative stress (free radical damage) and increased obesity.  In the study, authors stated, “ Obesity, as measured by body mass index (BMI), is independently associated with oxidative stress and confirms recent data” (Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology. 2003;23:365).

Another study from the University of Florida found that eating plants high in phytochemicals (and antioxidants) is effective in reducing the amount of oxidative stress in the body, and therefore, able to lower the risk of gaining unwanted fat (Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics; Oct 2009).

Unlike many other nutrients, you cannot store antioxidants, so you have to keep replenishing the supply.  The important thing is getting antioxidants throughout the day and keeping levels high because they go down very quickly.  Even small amounts can provide significant benefits.” (CNN, 2008)

Antioxidants and Weight Loss: Boost Your ORAC!
Why on earth would you want to try a high-ORAC diet?  Can it really help you lose weight and get the results you want?  Yes!  Combined with other high-antioxidant foods, such as those recommended in the section titled, What is a Sensible Meal?, your answer to weight loss is right here with the Xocai High-Antioxidant Meal Replacement Shake.

Researchers are finding that high-antioxidant diets – especially those of approximately 50,000 or more ORAC every day – tend to produce more lost pounds.   Of course, antioxidant-rich diets generally make you healthier in all areas – including cardio health, brain function, digestion, skin health and anti-aging – so, it’s not a surprise that weight loss is among the benefits.

The good news is that Xocai’s Healthy Chocolate products are among the highest ORAC  products available today.  And, now, with the High-Antioxidant Meal Replacement Shake – which boasts an amazing Total ORACfn score of over 50,000 per serving, you can significantly boost your antioxidant (ORAC) intake – and lose weight at the same time!
