Making sure that the carbs we eat promote and support the way our body is supposed to utilize carbs.
Insulin’s primary function is to take the glucose in your bloodstream, transport it to your liver to be turned into glycogen (fuel) and then carry it through the walls of your muscle cells so they can use it as energy. As long as your cells are receptive to insulin, and as long as your muscles need all that glycogen, most of the carbs you eat will be used by your muscles.
You eat a healthy meal that includes nutrient-dense carbs, along with protein and healthy fats.
Most of those carbs are converted to glycogen and either burned as fuel right away or stored in your muscle’s cells because you ate your carbs at a time when they were needed for energy or to replenish your stores. A minimum of glycogen is stored in your fat cells because your muscle cells needed and were receptive to what they were fed. Unfortunately, this isn’t how it’s working for most people because their carb-processing system is broken.
You eat a meal or snack loaded with high-fructose corn syrup and other sweeteners, refined flours, empty calories and little protein or fiber. Your insulin level skyrockets as well, not only in response to a ton of blood glucose, but also because a continuous pattern of eating this way and carrying too much fat has led to insulin resistance. Because you ate those carbs just because you felt like it instead of when your muscles needed them, and also because of your cells’ inability to respond to insulin, most of that glycogen is stored as body fat.
A 2005 study published in The Annals of Internal Medicine showed that eating a diet free of high-fructose corn syrup and other processed sugars and flours for two weeks drastically improved both the insulin sensitivity and blood glucose levels of obese patients with Type 2 diabetes. A 2004 study on carbs and insulin sensitivity found that a diet restricted to only high-fiber, low-glycemic carbs resulted in far less incidence of metabolic syndrome due to insulin resistance.
Another study on strength training showed that resistance training significantly improved glycogen uptake and increased insulin sensitivity after just two months. There is even ongoing and very exciting research into the way certain nutrients can improve insulin sensitivity and fat loss. A 2012 study found that supplementation of the plant extract berberine was as effective as metformin, a common medication for Type 2 diabetes, at reducing blood glucose levels. As you can see, you’re not without positive steps you can take to correct your insulin sensitivity, reduce your blood sugar and start losing that fat. While the research on ingredients such as cinnamon (pure cinnamon, not the grocery-store variety), fenugreek and berberine is really promising, you won’t be able to get enough of them and in the right forms to include them through diet; those will have to be gotten through a quality supplement.

I now take it when I am trying to lose weight with heavy carb meals and with my cheat meals (whether dieting or not). Nation Wares is A Charitable Movement That Provides Up and Coming Entrepreneurs With Sustainable Employment And Opportunities To Start Their Own Business. As people get older, the metabolism slows and stubborn belly fat can become a problem for many. One of the main reasons that belly fat is so stubborn and so common now is the amount of processed food that people eat.
Running and other cardio exercises will be great for your heart, but they won’t rid you of your belly fat.
This isn’t just an excuse; some people are just more prone to gaining weight around their waist. Persistent weight gain that seems impossible to shift could be the sign that you are unwell. Carbs have become the very definition of dietary evil, but this not only unfair, it’s also inaccurate. But if your diet and exercise habits mean that you eat far more carbs than your muscles need, insulin will take that glycogen and store it in the fat cells, mainly around your belly.
It doesn’t need much because you ate a sane portion of carbs, which only raised your blood sugar a little bit, and because your body’s cells are highly receptive to insulin. But the fact is that there is a ton of research showing there are things we can do to repair our carb-processing systems and reset our insulin sensitivity. A 2003 study reported that 40 days of taking a cinnamon supplement reduced blood glucose levels and improved glycogen uptake by as much as 29%.
After two months, those patients’ fasting blood glucose levels had dropped by a whopping 25%. By getting most of your carbs from whole fruits and vegetables, timing your carbs for during and after your workouts, and getting plenty of high-volume-high intensity exercise (both HIIT and resistance training), you can drastically improve your carb-processing system in just a couple of months. I would use it in three month increments and then take an entire month off and repeat as needed. I discovered through my own attempts to get fit that most exercise and diet programs simply don't work for women. From exercises just for us, to the special nutrition needs of women, I'll help you understand your body better and learn to live a more healthy and fit lifestyle.
Losing fat around the belly is easier said, than done and sometimes, despite all your best efforts, it just refuses to budge. This doesn’t just mean the convenience, fast food; it also means white bread, potato chips, fries and sugary products. To reduce belly fat faster, you need to do a combination of weight training and cardiovascular exercise.


It is impossible to lose fat from just one area of your body, you need work out on all areas of your body, with a variety of different exercises, to lose overall weight.
A study of 70,000 women, conducted over a fifteen year period, found that those women who slept less than five hours a night were 30% more likely to gain weight.
When you are stressed, you are more likely to reach for fattening comfort food, but that’s not all. If you do have, what people describe as an hourglass or pear shaped figure, this doesn’t mean that you can’t lose belly fat, it will just take a bit more effort.
Eating too much sugar and grains, which the body turns into sugar, can cause a surge of leptin production in the body, which can cause leptin resistance. The most common causes of stubborn belly fat are those that we have already described, but if you really have tried everything and you still can’t shift the weight, it would be worth visiting your doctor. But what we eat, how much we eat and when we eat determines whether that process works beautifully or falls apart. As a registered nurse I began to study nutrition for women, became a certified personal trainer and developed workout and diet programs just for women.
Cutting down on processed and refined food will be a good first step to losing your belly fat. Stress also causes the body to release the hormone, cortisol, which can make your body hold on to fat for even longer, so stress can be a big factor in whether or not you can lose your belly fat.
The menopause can also be a factor, because the menopause causes the hormone production to slow down, which can cause weight gain. It could be a sign that you have high testosterone levels or it could be the first signs of diabetes. To understand what I mean by that, you need to understand how the system is supposed to work.
I completely understood the whole cycle of carbs and energy and over replenishment of carbs causing the whole issue of extra weight around the belly. The monounsaturated fats that you find in food like avocados and nuts are much better for you and far less fattening. If you become leptin resistant, then you will eat more than you need and this excess food will be turned into fat.
