What does insulin have to do with fat storage?
Role Of Insulin
"Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that allows your body to use sugar (glucose) from carbohydrates in the food that you eat for energy or to store glucose for future use." Source: www.endocrineweb.com
Insulin stores glucose into fat cells for future use. What does that mean? High insulin = lots of fat creation.
What Triggers Insulin?
"This rise in blood glucose causes insulin to be released from the pancreas." Source: www.yourhormones.info
Foods high in sugar and in carbohydrates (that break down into sugar) are the main triggers of high blood glucose, and in turn the main triggers of insulin.
High insuling triggering foods include:
- Potatoes, Yams
- Bread, Pasta
- Candy, Cakes, Chocolate
