When you eat, your body converts the food into glucose, which is also known as blood sugar. At the same time it turns the food into blood sugar, it secretes insulin into your system. The amount of insulin depends upon how much blood sugar is present.
High levels of insulin in your body affects your weight in 2 ways. It causes your body to store fat and it prevents your body from burning previously stored fat.
Here is what happens in your body, when there is a large amount of insulin in your blood. Your body absorbs the amount of blood sugar it needs, in order to do the things you want it to do. The excessive insulin causes any remaining blood sugar to be stored as fat.
A high level of insulin also prevents fat burning from occuring, when you exert yourself physically. During a period of physical exertion, your body turns first to its blood sugar for the energy it needs. When the blood sugar is depleted, it looks to the fat previously stored on your body for the energy it needs. When the level of insulin in your body is high, it prevents your body from using fat as a source of energy.
The regulation of your blood sugar level, and therefore the amount of insulin in your body, is the key to managing your weight and to achieving permanent weight loss.
When Do You Have A High Blood Sugar Level?
The level of your blood sugar is governed by 4 things: the quantity of food you eat in a meal, whether you eat 2 carbohydrates in the same meal, how much simple sugars you eat in a meal, and whether you skip a meal or there is a long time between meals.
Any one of the four factors will bring about a high blood sugar level, which will increase the amount of insulin in your body. Regulating your blood sugar level, plays a pivotal role in controlling your weight.
