The heading should probably read “Turning Food into muscle, instead of Fat” since it’s not really possible to turn lard into protein.
Insulin is responsible for glucogenesis, lipogenesis, and protein synthesis.
In normal English, this means that insulin takes care of turning food into protein, glycogen (energy), or fat.
Many of us have a sweet tooth. We are prone to overloading our systems with sugar. When too much sugar arrives in our bodies all at once, we create a “food processing” bottleneck for insulin.
Imagine your body is an Amazon warehouse. The sugar truck arrives and packs all the parcels onto the conveyor belt at once. The workers (Insulin) cannot keep up with the handling of the boxes, but they have a trick. They grab the boxes which were destined for the muscles and other parts and pack them into a storeroom in the form of fat. The storeroom is the fat around your belly and the muffin-top of your hips.
Over time, these workers become “resistant” to all the sugar parcels and they begin to work less effectively. (INSULIN RESISTANCE)
The manager sees their plight, cancels the sugar delivery and the employees are no longer as resistant. In fact, they are so appreciative of the bulk sugar drop-offs, you could call them sensitive. (INULIN SENSITIVITY)
Consider yourself the manager of the delivered food parcels. Your own employees may be on a fattening go-slow too. Here’s how you re-set their attitudes:
THIS IS HOW YOU CAN RESTORE YOUR INSULIN SENSITIVITY
For a period of 2 weeks, cut out all carbs and sugary foods.
30grams from a POST WORKOUT SHAKE is what’s allowed.
The free carbs found in vegetables are allowed, but for now, leave the bread, pasta, rice on the shelf.
After 2 weeks, you’ll have turned your insulin sensitivity back on and the food you ingest will be superfood because it will be packed where it belongs and not around the belly.
Carbs are essential, and you can re-introduce them by means of Carb cycling and consuming them later in the day. We show you how to do this in the online program. To find out how we coach you to a total hormone correction, click this link
