Insulin is a hormone involved in the storage of fats and carbohydrates that we eat.
If you have insulin resistance, your body tends to produce more insulin than would have previously been needed to store the same amount of food.
A big problem is that the insulin can ‘turn off’ fat breakdown.
Higher than normal levels of insulin can cause various other effects and health issues.
How much of which foods you eat can make a huge difference to the way your body responds.
