Insulin efficiency will most definitely help you lose weight! Insulin efficiency is fundamentally important to everyone and means using the very least amount of insulin possible to get the job done. We can all be more efficient. When you have insulin efficiency:
To fully understand why insulin efficiency is crucial to long-term success, we need to understand what happens without it, i.e., when you have insulin resistance or simply need insulin in higher amounts than needed.
Insulin resistance is when insulin, which carries energy (glucose) to your cells and forms fat with any leftover energy, is unable to properly pass along energy to cells. This leads to a cascade effect and a whole range of health issues.
When you have insulin resistance or don’t use your insulin efficiently, your body requires an over-sized amount of insulin to function properly. This results in insulin levels being higher than they need to be. The more insulin, the more fat storage. When you gain weight, and even naturally as you age, your cells begin building a resistance to insulin, which means you need even more insulin to get the job done which leads to even more fat storage.
Excess insulin also blocks the hormone leptin from telling the brain when you have enough fat (stored energy) and when you have enough food. Without this communication, you feel tired and hungry despite eating more than you should.
Just as bad, high insulin levels mess up what type of foods our brains think our bodies need. Your brain thinks it’s low on sugar and fat, meaning you feel specific cravings for high sugar and high fat foods. Exactly the kind of foods you need to avoid!
Basically, it’s a kind of loop where you gain more weight because of insulin resistance and are more insulin resistant because you keep gaining weight.
In order to break the cycle, you need insulin efficiency.
However, insulin efficiency takes more than a just a proper diet: Energy storage and use are based not only on what you eat, but also on the specific exercise you do and the sleep you get.
That’s why the Olumia Life program works! It’s specifically designed to improve insulin efficiency, and hence insulin levels. It uses a specific variety, order, and progression of exercise along with improvements in nutrition and sleep. When insulin levels are optimized, your body receives the right signals at the right time—and fat storage is less.
