Secrets of Success

Why Cravings Start!



Overweight means that your insulin doesn't work as well to control glucose levels. When you are insulin resistant ( and normal people can be insulin resistant at times) your body converts every calorie it can into fat, even if you’re dieting. It won't let you burn fat when you exercise....even if you exercise like wild! Too much salt boosts insulin, the hormone that tells the body to store fat. The more insulin, the more fat is stored and the more you gain. When blood sugar drops cravings begin.
