Hormones and Your Weight Loss



For many years, you may have heard people and even medical doctors say, “Just eat less and exercise more!” Unfortunately that is hardly the case. Specific hormones play a huge part in weight loss. There are fat-storing and fat-burning hormones. Insulin is a fat-storing hormone.

Insulin is produced by the pancreas in your body. It’s function is to lower the blood sugar after meals. Eating sugar triggers insulin in your body. In the presence of insulin, you will not be able to burn fat (lose weight.)

The Ideal Doctors Method works to force the body into fat-burning by limiting the amount of carbohydrates, fats and sugar on a daily basis. Sugar intake must be reduced significantly to bring about weight loss.

According to Dr. Tran, “The cause of most weight issues in a modern society such as ours, is insulin dysfunction. A diet grossly disproportionate in its share of saturated fats and sugars, such as in breads, cereals, muffins, cakes, pastries, pasta, pizza, rice, corn – very much like the North American diet, causes the pancreas to produce an overabundance of insulin, which stays in the system and puts the blood sugar level in a negative balance.

An overproduction of insulin also leads to hypoglycemia or low glycemia, which in turn induces constant sugar cravings and weight gain. As was stated above, the primary function is to regulate blood sugar levels, however it is also the hormone that facilitates the transport of fat (triglycerides) into the fat cells.

It even “locks” the fat in the the fat cell, preventing it to be used as a source of energy. Now since the blood sugar has dropped (and we can’t access the fat as a fuel source) it creates “sugar cravings” and the vicious cycle begins again. An overabundance of insulin causes weight gain.

The Ideal Doctors protocol will transform the body’s ability to digest sugars properly by regulating insulin levels.

How? By giving the pancreas a well-deserved break and by cutting out simple and complex carbs until the weight loss goal is achieved.
