Effect Of Insulin For Fat Burning

In short, insulin is the hormone that stores fat. While that may sound really bad, this is really just the work of the hormone insulin.

Every time you eat, you activate insulin. At that point, this tells your body to convert the food you have just eaten into stored energy. Once you have finished eating, insulin then activates the body to use the stored energy. So you can store this energy for hours, without having to eat again.

However, it is important to understand that this energy can be converted into body fat. Body fat is actually nothing more or less than providing our body with energy in times of need. The problem with this in this present time, however, is that we humans are never actually short of food and we do not allow our bodies to access this body fat as energy.

Because insulin determines whether your body stores fat or burns fat, you have to make sure that insulin starts working properly again in order to burn fat. High insulin levels keep your body in a fat storage state, while low insulin levels allow your body to burn fat for energy.

And this is where the carbs come into play. Because of all macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats), it is the carbohydrates that have the greatest influence on insulin.

Because every time you eat carbohydrates, you activate an insulin response. That is why a diet with a lot of refined carbohydrates is not good for your body and certainly not for weight loss. Your body constantly uses carbohydrates as energy and never gets around to using fat as energy. And the more carbohydrates you eat, the higher your blood sugar , so the higher your insulin level, and therefore the more you store them as body fat.

Continue to eat carbohydrates

And over time, it becomes more and more difficult for your body to use the stored fat for energy as you become more and more insulin resistant. Your body needs more and more carbohydrates (the sugar addiction ).

Depending on how insulin resistant you are, even eating the good healthy carbohydrates like sweet potato , oatmeal , fruit can stop the burning of fats as energy.

In the first instance it is important to lower your carbohydrate intake. But then the fats also come into play. Because what you are going to reduce in carbohydrates, you supplement with fats (and proteins).

The important role of fat

Fats do not make you fat. On the contrary, you need them as an energy source and you need them to eventually burn your own body fat. 3 reasons not to cut back on fat and add it to your diet:

They do not produce an insulin response

In order to address insulin resistance in your body and put the body back into a fat-burning mode, it is important to eat more fat. Not only is fat vital to overall health, but it also doesn’t cause an insulin response the way carbohydrates do in your body.

Without fat, the body continues to use carbohydrates and your body continues to demand carbohydrates. Also, your body can never turn the switch from carbohydrate burning to fat burning. And ultimately the body cannot burn body fat (see point 4). Your body must first learn to burn dietary fat before it can start burning its own body fat.

Because fat a lot calories

The question: “How many calories per day can I eat or do I need to lose weight?” Might be 1 …contains, which you should not be alarmed by, it helps to keep a longer satiated feeling. It is mainly the carbohydrates in our diet that allow us to eat. Not the fats. And fats, unlike carbohydrates, keep our blood sugar levels stable, so you don’t get hungry as quickly.

You will also notice that by adding more fat you will have less need for another meal. You have a much more stable energy level. You can continue to eat fats for much longer than you can eat carbohydrates. Because the latter stock must be constantly replenished in your body.
