Quote of the Day:
“Hell would be meeting the man or woman you might have been.”
What is so important about controlling our insulin levels? We can strongly control our insulin levels by our nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle choices. Insulin is the master hormone, which is released from our pancreas after consumption of too many carbohydrates and protein respectively. Carbs are stored as glycogen in the liver and muscles. Once the liver gylcogen is full, the excess carbs are stored as fat- Triglycerides. Insulin’s primary function is a storage hormone and when insulin is high, nothing gets out of our cells. High insulin levels can lead to: abdominal adiposity- apple shape, high circulating blood glucose, high blood fats-hypertriglyceridemia, and high blood pressure- hypertension. For good health we want low insulin levels, good insulin sensitivity so we can get the most from insulin.
Keep up the good work on your Nutrition guys and if we need to make some changes lets work hard this week to make them happen. We are proud of you guys!!
