Cant lose weight? It is your Blood Sugar! Let Food Be Your Medicine
When there is a presence of too much insulin in your blood stream it prevents you from burning fat for energy, your body has an energy crisis when blood sugar is low and excess insulin is preventing the body from burning fat for energy. The result is fatigue and low energy.Your poor body wants to burn fat, but the high insulin levels prevent that from happening. If you can't burn fat then you certainly can't lose weight. Eat low glycemic.
Your pancreas starts to put out extra insulin to deal with the glucose 30 minutes after eating. About 2 hours after eating your body should burn through all the glucose it could process and then turns it into blood fats and will store the excess as fat in your system. Too many hours without eating can cause your blood sugar level to plummet, leaving you ready to grab for anything with sugar. Instead eat some fruit. Don't go longer than 3 hours without a small snack and experience no binges
