A complex relationship exists between food, blood sugar, insulin and fat. Insulin helps the body transform food into energy and regulate blood sugar levels.
When you eat carbohydrates, the body breaks them down into sugar (glucose) to be used as energy. If you have more glucose than your body needs, it will respond by producing more insulin to stabilize your blood sugar level, storing the excess glucose as fat. This means weight gain. For people with Insulin Resistance the process is accelerated making weight loss very difficult.
This book explains why it is so difficult for some people to lose weight and what they can do about it.
If you have tried and failed with multiple diets, than you may be one of the high percentage of overweight people who have insulin resistance. If so, this is the book for you.
