When people began dropping the fat out of their diets, they created a whole new problem - their blood sugar and insulin levels went through the roof! Without fat, there's nothing to slow the absorption of carbohydrates into the bloodstream. The result is a huge blood sugar and insulin spike. One of the secrets of fat loss is insulin management. A seesaw cycle of blood sugar and insulin ups and downs contributes to fat storage and a variety of diseases. Eating fat-free, high sugar food makes this up and down cycle worse and can eventually create a diabetes-like condition in the body.
