I’m sure some of you are wondering the meaning behind the name PEAR. The name sheds light on the philosophy and outlook of my coaching service with my clients. But before I get into that I need to give you a crash coarse in human physiology.
The thyroid is is arguably the most important gland in our body. It produces hormones that regulate the body's metabolic rate, temperature, heart and digestive function, muscle control, brain development, mood and healthy bones. In order for all these functions to happen, the body needs the help of the liver to convert the inactive thyroid hormone (T4) to the active form (T3). The liver’s fuel to carry out this function is through its stored glycogen reserves.
Now in a healthy metabolism is capable of the oxidation of sugar and delivering the necessary glycogen without the breaking down of muscle tissue. However when the body is put under a stressed state, adrenaline releases free fatty acids in to the system which compete with the oxidation of glucose and inhibits the necessary glycogen to be produced. This doesn’t let the liver play it’s role in activating the thyroid hormone which we know is so vital and important.
However there are different types of sugars which get metabolized differently. While glucose cannot get metabolized in the presence of free fatty acid oxidation, fructose (a sugar found in fruits) has been shown to be able to bypass the inhibition of free fatty acids.
Every fruit has a different fructose to glucose ratio. Some have more glucose and some have more fructose. The fruit with the highest fructose to glucose ratio is THE PEAR.
