Insulin is a fat-storing hormone, so for me, the only way I've been able to lose weight (in a healthy way) is to reduce my insulin to the bare minimum, which can only be done through a very low carb diet, and exercise.
While the exercise isn't crucial to weight loss, it does help with overall well-being, and improves tone, balance, and stamina.
If you think about the foods that require you to use more insulin, it's the carbs. Removing carbs also helps to alleviate the roller coaster of highs and lows which require more insulin for correcting your bs.
