The COM diet
WE ARE BORN AS WE ARE, WE BECOME AS WE EAT, AS WE MOVE, AS WE BREATHE, AS WE THINK!
The COM diet (an acronym for the italian CronOrMorfo dieta) is an integrated approach that takes the Chronobiology of Hormones and the Morphology of human beings into account. We are not all the same, and finding the right diet and type of physical exercise for each of us is essential for achieving good health. Certain morphologies or body shapes are linked to specific character traits. All of which, as we all know, is related to genetics, which influences our development according to our predispositions. Yet we also know now that epigenetics (namely the influence of the external environment) plays a key role in allowing certain predispositions to manifest themselves:
The COM diet takes into account the morphology of individual (apple, pear or bell pepper shaped) which corresponds with the prevalence of specific hormones. The influence these hormones have on fat distribution can, in part, be controlled and modified by the choice of foods in terms of quality, quantity and chronology. As a result, localized fat loss is promoted.
The Spot Reduction is a method of training that consist in stimulate adequately the muscles underlying the accumulation of fat in order to promote the circulatory flow and lipolysis in adipose tissue. As a result of the localized fat loss is promoted.
Combining togheder, COM diet and Spot Reduction, you will lose fat where you want, how you want.
The individual hyperlipogenetic anticipates a imbalance of the axis pituitary gland-surrene and consequent imbalance insulin. The typical hyperlipogenetic, when it is overweight, has a stocky aspect with accumulates, like already said …
The hypermixed biotype, or classical mixed biotype, is an individual that morphologically accumulates fat both in the upper and the lower part of the body. This biotype corresponds with the bilious type described by Hippocrates.
The Hypolipolytic people have the typical “pear-shaped” body with fat accumulation in the lower part of the body. This individual has a slow metabolism where the prevailing system is the parasympathetic system, an insulin stimulator.
The other subtype of the mixed biotype is the hypomixed. The classic mixed individual (hypermixed), due to an unbalanced diet with excessive carbohydrates, eventually starts suffering from hypothyroidism as the thyroid …
Each person’s outward appearance identifies their specific morphological structure which, in turn, depends on hereditary traits, metabolic-hormonal influences, food habits and environmental factors. The chronhormorphodiet or Com Diet, considers all these elements in order to indicate a particular diet built upon the specific traits of each single person. Localized fat Fat accumulation in different body […]
By Paolo Luzi, Massimo Spattini University of Milan – Interfaculty Agriculture / Medicine and Surgery Our morphological constitution is the result of all the morphological features which are linked to genetics and epigenetics, that is, the influence of the external environment on the appearance of certain predispositions. Accordingly, every person can be classified according to […]
In the last decades the metabolic syndrome (MS) has become one of the most important pathologies and cause of death in industrialized countries. According to the WHO, the MS is characterized by abdominal obesity, dyslipidemia, hypercholesterolemia, artery hypertension and insulin resistance. Perspective studies carried out in Italy show that about 19% of people over 45, […]
