Insulin – The Lean Man’s Evil (Fatty) Arch Nemesis!
It doesn’t matter how strong or skilled you are, when Evil Insulin attacks you cannot defeat him! The power of insulin is something that cannot be fought, but you must simply wait until the attack is over, before breathing a sigh of relief, and cleaning up the mess- a storage of ugly, jiggly fat.
The safe way to be safe from these fat storing attacks that Evil Insulin makes, is to avoid his hiding places. Choosing only to call on these ‘danger zones’ when the timing is right, and make his attack more to your advantage!
All that is needed is for you to figure out where this Evil Insulin hides, why his attack is so fierce, and what you should do to keep a safe distance from his belly softening attacks.
Where Does Insulin Lurk?
The hiding places of Evil Insulin are the candy aisle of the supermarket, the ice cream man on the street, he fits into a packet of chips and even finds a cosy place to hide in your loaf of bread (yes, even wholemeal)! Anything that has sugar in it is where Insulin hides.
Steering clear of these sugary destinations will keep you safe from Insulin’s attack, away from the evil fat he’ll attach to your mid section, and those even more frustrating sugar crashes at your desk in the afternoon.
What Happens When You’re Under Attack!
Where ever you find sugar, you’ll encounter insulin. Quite simply, when you eat anything with sugar in it, Insulin teams up with the sugar, carrying it around your body. At first it seems harmless, you burn the sugar (now converted to glucose) as energy, but then Insulin nearly always carries a little extra in his back pack.
This little extra is then shoved right into your fat cells! That’s when Insulin makes his retreat, and quite often tries to put you to sleep on the way out (sugar crash)!
He know’s his strengths – fat storage & dipping your energy levels. When carrying sugar through your blood into your cells, he grabs what fat is floating around too (from your meal) and does his very best to store that. He’s slowly killing you, your health and perhaps the one thing that’ll make you take real notice – YOUR APPEARANCE! (OH GOD NO!)
Even Worse, he knows your weaknesses – Candy Bars, Chip packets, soft drinks, sandwiches, and anything that tastes oh so sweet.
Turn the table on Evil Insulin!
You can fight back! Well, it’s more of an avoidance then a fight. Just understand his weakness!
Insulin knows your body will have a much more difficult time storing fat without him, that’s why he hides, and sneaks his way in. He knows you don’t want to store that fat.
Take advantage of this by avoiding the sugar and instead eating healthy meats, eggs, vegetables, and a little bit of fruit. Insulin’s power is basically non-existent in these foods. Look for the foods low in carbohydrates, and you can’t go wrong!
Taking Advantage of Insulin!
There are times, when Insulin’s evil power can be used for good!
Within an hour or so after finishing a heavy weight lifting workout, your body needs energy deposited into your cells for accelerated recovery and muscle growth. Drinking some juice, to bring about the power of Insulin, and adding a protein shake into the mix will actually do your a lot of good! (don’t drink juice and protein mixed, that’s gross. Try drinking juice, then drinking a protein shake, or vice versa).
The insulin spike from the juice, will carry the protein to your worked, sore muscles faster and will not result in stored fat!
You’ve just made Evil Insulin your bitch!
To Summarise…. in ENGLISH.
Want less fat? Then avoid sugary, insulin producing foods. Your body has a hard time storing fat without insulin, so keeping carbohydrate intake down below 100g a day is an excellent way to shred fat. But always remember to take advantage of that spike just after a heavy weight lifitng workout to boost your recovery and kick start muscle growth. Hope you enjoyed reading my crazy (and moderately stupid) article on insulin!
Controlling Insulin will tremendously help you to shred up and reveal that six-pack. For fat loss information check out our dedicated section here.
