Carnitine levels in meat can increase fat levels

Mainly eating Protein but still increasing size and weight?
Increased weight gain through a low calorie intake is very unusual and the body will only behave in this way if its reacting to certain pharmaceutical medication, the hyper thalamus is stressed or the patient has a metabolic syndrome.
What is a Metabolic Disorder
A person with a metabolic disorder will store weight in key areas of the body. Once the body learns to accumulate energy as adipose tissue (fat tissue), it is very difficult to stop this mechanism and return the body to its original state. In other words, the patient starts suffering from a chronic condition. This is like having a chronic condition such as hypertension, diabetes or a thyroid problem.
Generally, the process begins by the patient loosing the ability to feel full. They over eat as the body does not receive the signs of being full from the regulatory centres (the Hypothalamus gland) in order to stop eating. As the body cannot get rid of the unnecessary food, accumulation of excess body fat takes place. Once this mechanism starts, it is very difficult to turn off.
