FUN FACT: Anyone who has been injecting insulin in the same spot for a while, knows that they will develop fat deposits, at the site of the injection.
See below . . .
Lets give you one more simple metaphor to help you really understand this very important point.
If you look at insulin like food police, every time you eat food the police (insulin) come out. And as long as you stay within the speed limit (eating limit) that is you use (metabolize) all the carbs / proteins you eat.
You will not get a ticket (fat).
But if you keep eating and not using all the carbs and proteins (sugars), then your constantly over the speed limit (repetitive speeding tickets) . . . The insulin police will then take you to a “jail cell” . . . aka “fat cell” and where you’ll be spending large amounts of time making a lot of fat cells (obesity) . . .
Because you keep eating and not using all your carbs and proteins . . Capiche?
At this point you will have 2 choices:
food police (insulin) to take you to a jail cell (fat cell = obesity)-remember?
Which is a very tedious and cumbersome task.
Not to mention extremely inconvenient; especially when your life is
already so packed full of tasks and to do lists!
FUN FACT: Be like Micahel Phellps and eat and use (metabolize)12,000 calories a day! With a no excess body fat and no fatty liver or type 2 diabetes. Of course this is an extreme example to show you that it is not insulin, but rather “unused” carbs and proteins (sugars) that cause insulin to do bad things in your body!
We of course, are not advocating for you to eat 12,000 calories a day
. . but we are advocating for you to use all the carbs and proteins
(sugars) that you consume in a day . . . so that insulin will be your friend and not your foe!
Now which one sounds like a good bit easier and a whole lot more fun?
