(NaturalNews) A study appearing in the American Chemical Society's Journal of Proteome Research has given further insight into the correlation between calorie restriction and weight loss. While it is known that calorie-restricted diets are effective at helping people to lose weight, it has now been found that fat cell proteins play an important role in regulating bodily fat stores and extending life.

Dr. Edwin Mariman and his research team sought out to further understand the relationship between fat cell proteins and weight loss. Prior animal studies have shown that low-calorie diets rich in valuable nutrients are effective at maintaining proper bodily weight and lengthening life span.

In order to understand how it works in humans, the team investigated the subcutaneous fat cells of a group of obese people that followed a five-week calorie-restricted diet. Besides the fact that the average participant lost over 20 pounds, researchers discovered that six fat cell proteins in participants' bodies had changed their composition throughout the course of the diet.

The significance of the discovery is that fat cell proteins instruct the body when and how to store fat. The composition change indicated that the low-calorie diet had actually restructured the proteins, signaling them to store less fat and to use it differently than before. Researchers believe the bodies of the study participants will now regulate themselves better, leading to better health and longer life.

According to researchers, being able to observe the marked changes in fat cell proteins will help verify the effectiveness of various methods of cutting calories to lose weight and gain better health.

Comments by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

Fat cells aren't stupid cells: They're actually quite intelligent. In fact, the fat cells of your body may one day be called a whole new "organ." They exhibit remarkable adaptability and communication with other cells in the body.

The old model of thinking that fat cells are stupid like batteries -- just storing energy, then releasing energy -- is far too simplistic. What we now know is that fat cells respond to their environment and adapt to increase the survival of the whole organism (you).

That's why fat cells alter their composition in response to changes in calorie intake. It's as if the cells are morphing into new cells that are better adapted to a calorie-restricted diet.

This is also good news for dieters, because it indicates that you really can change your physiology by changing your diet.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
