Insulin is referred to as the “storage hormone” because its job is to activate transportation of nutrients (i.e. carbs and fat) into cells and to turn off the burning of nutrients. When you eat carbs, blood glucose levels rise, which the body does not like. In order to bring blood glucose levels back into normal range, the pancreas secretes insulin, which signals cells to increase the uptake of glucose from the blood into them. During this time, fat burning is blunted. Therefore we want to control insulin levels to keep fat burning elevated. Keys to doing this are:
·, more controlled insulin release thus less fat storage and more fat loss.
· Eat good fat with every meal, especially carbohydrate meals.
· Do not combine carbohydrates and protein alone, this elicits the highest insulin response. For example, a cup of oatmeal has a moderate insulin response but when you combine oatmeal with whey protein, you get a much higher response. If you do combine these, be sure to add a fat source-Scivation lifestyle cut diet. Please read it people.
