Your Muscles May Be Making You Fat

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


Thursday, August 25, 2011

Have you noticed that excess belly fat appears to be almost epidemic these days, even amongst the very slender and the very young?

If you want a smaller waistline you need a bigger understanding of insulin

When you eat high carbohydrate comfort foods regularly, your insulin levels become dangerously high and your cells become resistant to insulin. This means you can’t get enough sugar into your cells and you feel tired, unfocused, and hungry after meals.

To get control of your belly fat, you need to break the viscous cycle.

On top of the difficulty and stress people experience due to insulin resistance, worry and fear trigger increased cortisol, an adrenal hormone.

Join Dr. Ritamarie and learn the kicker that keeps the belly fat from burning…and how your muscles could be contributing to your belly fat.
