The Cause of Unwanted
It’s surprising and frightening at just how bad things have become in America. Obesity is now rated as an epidemic, and many people are scrambling to find a resolution to their weight loss problem – but unfortunately they mix in with the wrong crowd, suffer the pill mills, and just go on plans that do nothing for them.
The reason weight loss is such a problem for Americans is a result of insulin dysfunction. Most people have poor diets consisting of fats and sugars that are bad for our bodies. Such foods include breads, cereals, muffins, cakes, pastries, pasta, pizza, rice, corn, you name it. But, why is this so bad for us?
It’s because our pancreas goes in to overdrive and produces an incredible amount of insulin, and when we have too much insulin our body doesn’t know what to do with it. So, it stays in our system and pushes our blood sugar level in to chaos, knocking everything else out of proportion, and can lead to hypoglycemia or low glycaemia.
Do you ever find yourself having a sugar crave? Well, you might be suffering from hypoglycemia or low glycaemia, and that promotes weight gain. Scary, isn’t it? The only way for us to know for sure is to test your blood sugar level.
Insulin helps to regulate our blood sugar levels, everyone knows this. But what a lot of people are surprised to hear is that insulin also serves another incredible purpose. Insulin is a hormone that helps to facilitate the transportation of triglycerides (fat!) in to our fat cells to be stored later for energy. If you have an overproduction of insulin, this could induce a terrible cycle where your fat cells become locked away – that stored energy unable to be released, and your body just doesn’t know what to do, and you get that sugar craving once again. It is an incredibly vicious cycle.
