Maintaining the correct balance of insulin is key to healthy weight. Insulin is your metabolism’s master hormone to control your blood sugar by storing excess energy in the form of fat.
Most Americans suffer from hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance. Which means basically your pancreas is on over-drive and never gets a break and your body keeps getting less and less responsive to insulin.
