your life. In this video, we’re talking about the key
to weight loss. You know if you’re one of those people that
seems that you know no matter how much you exercise or how little food you eat, you can’t
seem to lose weight, and as a matter of fact, just the mere sight of food, you feel like
you’re starting to gain weight. Well first of all you’re not alone, and as
a matter of fact, it may not be your fault. What it has to do with is a little hormone
called insulin. Now what insulin is is a hormone that’s created
by the pancreas, and it shuttles blood sugar into the cells so that it can be used for
energy. Now what was found unanimously across several
studies when insulin is raised weight gain followed, and when insulin was lowered, then
weight loss had followed that. So what I’ll do is kind of show you a couple
of these studies and show you the the hormone cascade that
happens here that causes you to gain weight when insulin levels are high. So first, let’s go to the United Kingdom. Back in 2007, what they did is they took did
this study where they took a group of patients, and they gave them insulin injections. And then they took another group, and they
gave them a medication that would increase the secretion of insulin in the body. So what they found is that they were taking
these diabetic patients, they were raising insulin, they were so you know as a result
blood sugar had balanced out. But what also happened is because they raised
that insulin, the patients that got the injections had a nine pound weight gain, and then the
patients that took the medication that increased insulin secretion had a 6.8 pound weight gain. So as a result of increasing insulin, what
happened weight gain followed. Now let’s go ahead and take another study
going back to 1993. What they did is they took a group of diabetics
in over a six month period of time. They gave them a hundred units of insulin. Okay, so over that six month period of time,
the other thing that they did is they cut their calories by 300 calories. And so in the increased insulin but decreased
food intake decreased calories, as a result the average patient gained 19 pounds. Now adversely what happens in type 1 diabetics
is that they have an autoimmune condition that breaks down the beta cells on the pancreas. As a result of that their body’s not able
to produce insulin, and so their insulin levels are very, very low. And so what happens for them is they have
a absolute increase in a ton of weight loss, and they actually have so much weight loss
that their body starts wasting away. And so you know you can see here as we have
all these different ways that we’re raising insulin that weight gains following and as
we are having conditions that are decreasing insulin in a huge way the body just starts
shedding weight like crazy. Taking you out of the realm of diabetics,
you look at somebody who actually has a tumor that secretes insulin. What happens is that this person starts to
gain weight. And as soon as that tumor is removed and in
that whole issue is taken care of, the insulin levels drop back down in weight also drops
as well. Now here’s where things get a little bit dicey. When insulin is chronically raised, it drives
chronic inflammation. The other thing that it does is it down regulates
cell receptors. And when insulin is chronically raised the
other thing or hormone that is chronically raised is leptin. Now leptin is the hormone that tells your
body you’re full. It tells your brain you’re full. So you’re eating your meal, leptin spikes,
and it says “Hey, we’re full stop eating.” So what happens in people who become leptin
resistant, essentially what happens is they can’t hear that hormone, and then they are
not told, their brain is not told to stop eating. So as a result of that you overeat. So here’s where the problem persists. Insulin levels continue to increase. Leptin levels continue to increase. Leptin continues not to be able to be heard. You start overeating, and it turns into this
whole cascade of negative events that’s causing you to gain weight. So what I want to do is come over here and
teach you how you can actually balance insulin levels in decrease insulin levels and body,
so that you can not only lose weight, but also live a better life. Because we know that the more weight that
you carry around the more prone you are to chronic disease and that the chances of developing
chronic diseases and chronic inflammation is way up when you’re carrying that excess
weight. So the first strategy that I want to talk
about is intermittent fasting. Okay. Intermittent fasting is fasting for sixteen
hours and eating all your meals within an eight hour period. So ideally what we’re basically doing here
is we’re skipping breakfast, okay. We’re having a nice lunch and a nice dinner. Ideally here the other thing that we want
to do is we want to make sure that we’re not snacking in between meals. Because while we’re going in that 16 hour
fasted state, it’s going to really bring down those insulin levels. And then we’ll have our first meal, and in
a healthy individual, those insulin levels will drop back down. Now between those meals we don’t want to snack
because we don’t want to spike insulin between the meals. We want to have an insulin spike at the meal
and that the first meal and the second meal and then that’s it and go back into that fasted
state. So intermittent fasting is really powerful
here. The next thing is we need to remove sugar. So you know you might be thinking just all
the sugar that you would add to your food, but we not only want to watch out for that
sugar, but we want to watch out for too much natural sugar. So sugar like honey, sugar like maple syrup,
sugars that are typically acceptable in like a Paleo diet, are not going to be acceptable
if you’re trying to lose weight and you’re trying to keep your insulin levels low. So not only do we need to watch out for sugary
beverages, but we also need to really watch out for natural sugars in excess. And also we want to watch out for those sugars
that are added to almost all the foods that we’re buying in the store that are keeping
you addicted to them. So whether it’s canned tomatoes, ketchup or
even yogurt really watch for those different sugars that are added, and those sugars coming
over 50 different names. Most of them end in -ose. So like fructose, sucrose most of them end
in -ose and if they don’t end in -ose, typically they’ll have the word sugar in them like cane
sugar. Now the next thing that we want to do here
is really watch our diet, and one of the things that we can do to really support balancing
insulin levels is eat more fat. So increase our good fat content. Fat is one of the foods that raises insulin
the least. And so if we want to keep our insulin levels
low, we want to make sure that we’re increasing fat, and this is why people who follow a ketosis
diet they find that they have such good results with weight loss, keeping insulin levels low,
keeping hormones balanced, and as a result, as I said losing weight. Next thing we have to keep the protein moderate. Okay. If you’re eating protein in excess, it’s breaking
down into sugar in the body. We should be somewhere around a 30% range
of our macronutrient protein intake, okay. So we’re thinking 60% here, 30% here, and
10% at the carbs. Now remember when it comes to carbs, we always
are looking for nutrient dense carbs like a sweet potato and not the refined carbohydrates
like white bread. And we don’t want to consume any carbs in
excess because it’s going to raise those insulin levels. So here’s the deal guys, if you want to learn
more about how to eat for weight loss, go ahead and check out my video because I did
a video on that specific topic that breaks down this category on food a little bit more. So ladies and gentlemen if you want to lose
weight, it ultimately comes down to this hormone called insulin. It is the key to weight loss. So implement these strategies right here,
and you’re gonna find that you are able to bring those insulin levels down and see great
results. Be sure to subscribe to the channel, give
