Sugar Watchers by Valerie Robitaille, PhD
Sugar Watchers ebook excerpt:
When we eat, the pancreas puts out insulin. Eating carbohydrates causes the highest amount of insulin to be secreted. Insulin is a storage hormone. In graduate school we referred to it as the “fat” hormone because it helps store carbohydrates as fat (in case of future famine.) So basically, we are telling the body to store fat when we over-consume carbohydrates, particularly the refined type (bread, cereal, pasta and of course sugary foods – yes, even fruit). Metabolically, when you eat foods high in sugar and carbs, you increase both blood sugar and insulin levels. Insulin is a “hungry hormone” and responsible for increased fat storage to boot! It signals the body not to release any stored fat. So you can’t even use your own stored body fat for energy, it just stays where it’s stored. Read more…
