  • Hello everyone, today I'm here to tell you you how can lose four to nine pounds of belly fat in a single week.

  • by eating whatever you want without doing a lick of exercise.

  • [intro music]

  • Oh no, seriously, I'm here to tell you about Skinny Hank.

  • For ten days you eat nothing but corn dogs and my patented fat metabolizing

  • peanut sauce wrapped in a flour tortilla

  • make sure you take the stick out.

  • you eat that and exclusively that, you understand, for ten days.

  • you might notice that your face and feet start getting a little puffy, but don't worry about that, that'll go away.

  • Then, after ten days of that, you can eat whatever you want, I promise.

  • Bada-bam, you got ryan gosling abs and I'd show you mine,

  • They're there but,

  • we have like an agreement with our advertisers

  • and I'm contractually bound to keep my shirt on.

  • Was that too much? I don't know if that was too much. It may have been too much.

  • I apologize if it was but there was a point in there somewhere

  • amongst the cheetos, and the point is that you can't go anywhere these days

  • without someone telling you how you might be able to become thinner.

  • Partially because it's a really good way to sell people things because we're very conscious about our bodies

  • but it's also because Americans these days..are getting fat

  • and not just fat but obese

  • and it's happening really, really fast.

  • This is a map of the United States

  • starting in 1980, because that's when the CDC started collecting data on obesity

  • it was about at 10%

  • and as time goes on

  • things start to get a little scary

  • and the whole country but mostly...focusing...mississippi

  • What is mississippi doing? Stop doing that!

  • You can see suddenly, in the last 30 years, a lot of America has an average obesity rate of above 30%

  • I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but we're fat and we're getting fatter

  • and it's not just Americans, we like to make fun of Americans particularly

  • for getting so rotund so quickly

  • but it's the whole world really or

  • the whole developed world. We have seven

  • billion people on the Earth right now and a lot of people

  • studying this think that 2.3 billion

  • of them will be obese by 2015.

  • dang, that is a lot of obese people.

  • and to be clear here, doctors don't go around hollering about how we need to lose weight because

  • they're being paid off by the health foods industry

  • it's actually really bad for us.

  • carrying around a lot of extra body weight can kill you

  • in many unpleasant ways

  • including our two favorite ways to die: heart disease and cancer

  • but also the new epidemic of type two diabetes

  • so being fat is objectively bad for you.

  • but the question remains, how did it happen so quickly and why did it happen so quickly

  • so! what's going on?

  • because the data on obesity would suggest that we're all just sitting around eating pork cracklin's all day

  • [crunch]

  • that, I think was the very first pork cracklin I've ever eaten in my life

  • and I can tell you why

  • why do people eat these?

  • that's not food.

  • It's not just certain groups of people, it's everybody.

  • It's little kids and it's old people and it's rich people and it's poor people

  • and it's new immigrants to America and it's people whose ancestors came over on the mayflower.

  • Conventional wisdom and scientific rationality tells us that this is a numbers game.

  • It's calories in verus calories out. It's the first friggin law of thermodynamics, people.

  • Our doctors never shut up about having us eat right and exercise, and they're basically right.

  • If we do that we should be able to maintain a normal, healthy body shape.

  • Whereas a quick perusal of the contents of your average grocery store will tell you,

  • that we do not eat right and a quick examination of the way that I, for example, live my life

  • would indicate that we don't - we don't exercise very often

  • I...love to sit.

  • But, doctors are now pretty sure that, in fact, its not just diet and exercise.

  • There has to be some other reason why America, and the rest of the world, is having this crazy obesity epidemic.

  • Because scientists and doctors have been setting out again and again to prove that it's just diet and exercise

  • and everytime they come back and they pretty much fail.

  • For example, in the year 2000, they took 1700 school children from forty different schools

  • and they divided them into groups, kind of a cruel thing to do but they did it,

  • and they gave one of the groups better physical education and a better diet

  • and they gave the other group less physical education and the same old diet.

  • The same old diet they had always been eating, which, if you remember school lunch - not good.

  • At the end of three years of that, some of the smartest people in the world, armed with the best research equipment that you could buy,

  • and millions of dollars, and lots of free time, couldn't find a difference in the BMI of those two groups of kids.

  • So researches are now setting their sights at overall macro changes in the way that humans are living

  • and even changes to our genes, that may be defining why we are so obese now,

  • and maybe we don't have to blame ourselves anymore.

  • First reason: not enough sleep.

  • It's hard to get precise data on how long people sleep at night,

  • but our best guess is that since the 1960s we've lost about two hours of sleep per night.

  • We're just very busy people.

  • And there are a bunch of studies that show that as you sleep less, your BMI goes up.

  • Which is why I like to sleep 10 or 12 hours a day.

  • And this is kind of hard data to figure out, because obesity actually leads to sleep disorders,

  • and so obese people have a harder time sleeping,

  • and so it's hard to figure out whether the lack of sleep is leading to the obesity or the obesity is leading to the lack of sleep.

  • But scientists have actually done a pretty good job of figuring out that sleep depravation actually causes obesity.

  • and they figured out, one mechanism at least, as to why.

  • For example, there's a hormone called Leptin and theres another called Ghrelin,

  • and when you're sleep deprived, those hormones get all out of wack

  • and they start to tell your body that you're hungry

  • when what, in fact, you probably need its not food but sleep

  • Reason #2: climate control

  • So this doesn't immediately make sense, but we're warm-blooded mammals.

  • We have to expend energy to keep our bodies at the temperature at which they can exist.

  • If our bodies get too hot, then we die, and if they get too cold, then we die.

  • Over the past 30 years, our indoor spaces have become more and more exactly what we want them to be.

  • We have really good climate control systems now.

  • It's warm inside when it's cold outside and it's cold inside when it's warm outside.

  • Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to argue against this, I love that

  • I love coming home and having it not be 30 degrees inside,

  • but it does in fact take a huge amount of our calories to keep our bodies at the optimal temperature,

  • and we're simply not expending those calories anymore, because it's always 72 degrees inside.

  • Reason #3: We all quit smoking.

  • To be clear, cigarettes are much more deadly than obesity.

  • Facts is facts people, nicotine is an appetite supressant.

  • So, if you smoke, you eat less.

  • Even worse, if you smoke and then you stop, you eat more.

  • I've also, in the same vein, heard that meth is a really great weight loss strategy.

  • Especially because you lose your teeth and hair, and those things have mass, so you know...that's good.

  • What I'm saying here is don't start smoking.

  • Also, don't do meth.

  • Making crystal meth, #3 reason that we're all getting fatter. Industrial chemicals!

  • Everyday, you and I, and everyone else in America, is exposed to thousands of industrial chemicals.

  • Resins, solvents, perfumes, dyes, all that lovely weird stuff that they put in chicken nuggets.

  • We swallow them, we inhale them, we absorb them through our skin.

  • Researchers, for example, are working with these poor, chubby, little rats,

  • and exposing them to hexochlorobenzine, which is an industrial pesticide,

  • and the rats exposed to [this chemical], are significantly fatter than rats that aren't,

  • even when you feed the exposed rats half as much food as the control rats. That is unfortunate.

  • Another reason why we may be getting fatter: your mom.

  • So your chances of getting fat, unfortunately, may be set even before you are born.

  • First, because overweight women tend to choose overweight men to father their offspring.

  • Then you end up with two sets of overweight genes overlapping in your chromosomes.

  • Also women who are overweight during pregnancy or contract gestational diabetes, tend to give birth to babies who will later in life become obese.

  • Also, your changes of being obese later in life, are also affected by how old your mom was when she gave birth to you.

  • The average age of a first time mother jumped from 21 in 1970 to 25 in the year 2000.

  • And some studies have come up with weird studies about this, like,

  • "For every 5 years a woman waits to have a baby, that baby is 14% more likely to become obese"

  • and now is the part where I explain to you why this is,

  • except...no one has any idea.

  • The final contender in the "your mom" category: your mom.

  • You can blame her for pretty much everything now.

  • It's epigenetics. We've done a whole episode on epigenetics and you can click over here to go to that episode.

  • You'll learn about all of the things your parents did to you before you were born.

  • So you should watch that episode because it's gonna make you be like [exaggerated voice] what?

  • Basically, we used to think that your genes were your genes,

  • but it turns out there's a bunch of information that's above the genome.

  • Which is what epigenetics means; above genetics.

  • That epigenetic information can be created just one generation before you,

  • and totally change the way that your genome is expressed

  • So basically the way that your mom ate food and whether she smoked cigarettes,

  • and how stressed out she was can all effect your changes of becoming an obese person.

  • and finally, our last reason why people are obese: Gut Bacteria.

  • So the bacteria in our bodies are fantastic and we like to think of ourselves as big, independent, individuals,

  • but actually, we're a symbiotic ecosystem up in here.

  • There are more bacteria cells in our body then there are us cells. That's weird, huh?

  • So the bacteria in our gut are super fantastic, really great hard-working little guys,

  • and they help us metabolize food, they help us create certain types of vitamins

  • and it turns out that skinny people tend to have more gut bacteria and different types of gut bacteria than obese people.

  • I mean, the question is what do we do about that?

  • It's not like you could take a healthy person's gut bacteria and put them in......actually, you can do that,

  • and it's really simple to do.

  • It's just hard to get people to agree to it. It's called a fecal transplant and it's exactly what it sounds like.

  • So, yeah.

  • Take healthy gut bacteria, extract it from a healthy person and insert it into an unhealthy ecosystem of gut bacteria... and it works.

  • It could solve all sorts of weird problems.

  • From like really bad intestinal infections, to actually helping people with obesity.

  • So in conclusion, Skinny Hank's Weight Loss Peanut Sauce (tm), is not going to help you,

  • We do now have a prescription for weight loss for you.

  • #1: Get More Sleep

  • #2: Have your mom give birth to you when she's a little bit younger.

  • #3: See what you can do about before you're born. Make sure your mom doesn't smoke, overeat and gets with skinnier guys.

  • #4 Do not heat or cool your house.

  • Think of all the money you'll save on utilities.

  • #5: Move to a different planet, that isn't laced with industrial chemicals.

  • Yes, it is also probably a good idea to eat better and exercise more.
