Insulin Resistance Syndrome
Leads to Belly Fat

Insulin Resistance Syndrome is also known as Metabolic Syndrome and Syndrome X.

What Is Insulin?
Insulin is a major hormone produced by the pancreas to assist energy production. This hormone plays a key role in transporting blood sugar (glucose), the basic fuel of the body, across the cell membrane and into the cell where it is rapidly burnt for energy.

What is Insulin Resistance Syndrome?
resistance is a condition in which the cells of the body become resistant to the effects of insulin, that is, the normal response to a given amount of insulin is reduced. As a result, higher concentrations of insulin are required for this important blood sugar control hormone to have an effect.

In simple terms, insulin resistance syndrome is a blood sugar control problem strongly linked to being overweight, even obese.

The International Diabetes Federation have a definition for insulin resistance syndrome. To have this condition, a person must have central obesity (body fat that’s concentrated around the waist), plus any 2 of the following indicators:

  • a raised triglyceride level (a type of fat in the blood)
  • a low level of HDL-cholesterol (‘good’ cholesterol)
  • high blood pressure or 
  • an increased blood sugar level after a period of fasting, or have been previously diagnosed with type 2 diabetes

While this doesn’t necessarily mean you’re diabetic; it does however mean your body is having problems controlling blood sugar levels effectively.

The 3 Week Diet

Learn the Truth About Losing Belly Fat

Today, the average diet is too high in sugary foods. Foods loaded with sugar cause rapid spikes in blood sugar levels. This is a problem as too much sugar builds up in the blood.

Excess sugar can actually be toxic to the body. Over time too much sugar causes destruction within the body. That is why diabetics experience eye, nerve, kidney and vascular damage. The sugar literally breaks down protein structures within the body.

Your body knows that high blood sugar levels are harmful so it keeps a careful eye on your sugar levels. When levels are too high insulin is released to prevent your levels from spiraling out of control.

Insulin either moves the sugar into the cells for energy, or it is stored as body fat. To put it simply, insulin becomes a fat storing machine when there is an over supply of sugar. And the main area this fat is stored is around the belly! This is a dangerous risk factor to your health.
