Why? It is all about insulin. The reason you might be tired, feel lethargic, unwell with no energy, or suffer from unexplained aches and pains, low mood, anger issues, or many other similar symptoms, are likely because of fluctuating blood sugar levels. Our bodies are not designed to cope with all the sugar and other refined carbohydrates that we eat. Our insulin levels are constantly high because of all those carbs in our meals which in time lead to insulin resistance. You might be suffering from these different symptoms and also possible weight gain or obesity long before you are diagnosed with chronic illnesses such as type 2 diabetes, cancer, PCOS, gout or heart disease, all caused by insulin resistance.
Insulin is the reason we put on weight. It is a hormone, with one of it’s main functions to store excess sugar as fat, so yes, if you keep eating all those carbs that turn to sugar in your body and constantly have raised insulin levels, you will never lose the weight permanently. You keep storing the fat! Obesity has nothing to do with calories, or lack of exercise. It is a sign of a metabolic problem caused by insulin resistance.
When you understand the problems with insulin, you understand why the only way to lose weight and treat or prevent chronic illness is to cut down the excess carbs in your diet to ensure low levels of insulin.
