What is insulin

Insulin is the hormone responsible for blood sugar placed in certain depots or where it is most needed.
After intense training, we need to get  the muscles filled with sugar and rebuild their reserves for the next time, which is why at this time the muscles say “sensitive” to insulin. This sensitivity increases with muscle mass so that gaining muscle actually increases the sensitivity of muscle insertion sugar glycogen dipoles – most of which increases muscle growth.


On the other hand, in periods of rest between training days or weeks when you do not train inuslin will inject sugar into fat because the muscles are filled and grease is the best way of storing energy (1g equals 9 calories, unlike sugar which is equal to 4 calories per  1g ). The more body fat we  have, the greater the chance that the sugar is deposited in fat cells.

So is the trick in reducing fat deposits by simply reducing  fat deposits and increasing muscles by working  hard in the gym and avoiding sugars in the diet?
And it’s not that simple .. control insulin must be maintained throughout the day … so there are  times when the insulin needs  to preserve the sugar as fat.
Of course, avoiding carbohydrates days when you do not  exercise is mandatory. But what else can we do in terms of control of insulin?
For example, you can take a teaspoon of cinnamon before each meal. Cinnamon increases sensibilty tissues to insulin and will not significantly affect the calories in the diet.
Also tablespoon of apple cider vinegar before meals is another way to increase the sensitivity of tissues to insulin.
Omega 3 fatty acids from fish oil is what  you need to take, because  it is not just about the supplement that will help you with insulin but it is also very powerful in terms of hormone levels and fat burning.
