If you have back fat or love handles that is busting over your jeans, that fat right where your kidneys are then your insulin levels may be too high.
Insulin is a hormone that is made by the pancreas that allows our body to use sugar (glucose) from carbohydrates for energy or to store glucose for future use.
Our bodies have 2 main fuels: sugar (glucose) and fats.
If you’re highly active, for example a runner, a cyclist or have any active job where you work up a sweat, then your body will most likely use sugar as fuel too.
But like most of us, who sit behind a desk all day or stand in a shop, a salon etc...relying on sugar as your fuel isn’t going to work in the long run. It will most likely result in fat storage.
When we eat too much sugar or refined carbohydrates (white bread, pasta cereals), insulin is produced in the body. When insulin is produced, our body naturally takes what it needs for energy.
If you have a high energy job, then it takes more of that sugar to fuel your energetic lifestyle.
If you have a low energy lifestyle, you sit behind a desk, exercise moderately etc.. then it will take what it needs to fuel that low energy lifestyle and then STORES THE REST AS FAT!!!
I talked about moderate exercise. What is moderate?
If you’re running 3 times a week, 20 minute runs or lifting weights, 4 x 40 minute sessions, or doing a bit or aerobic exercise...sure you’re raising your heart rate for 20-40 mins, 3-4 times a week and perhaps a few more hours after you’ve finished training, but that doesn’t compare to someone who is doing this all day constantly like a removal guy, a labourer, an athlete.
Your body takes what it needs to fuel your current lifestyle and then stores the rest as fat.
If you’re someone who has fat on their body and wants to lose this fat then you need to keep your insulin levels in check. Ensure that you don’t raise your insulin levels too much.
When insulin levels are NOT elevated, your body will use its existing fat stores as fuel. Your body will burn existing fat.
When you eat and the foods you eat causes a spike in insulin levels, your body uses the sugar from that food to fuel itself. It takes what it needs and then converts the rest as fat and whacks it on top of your existing fat stores.
So what's the answer?

Once you get your insulin levels controlled within you body, you will start to burn fat.
