Calories Matter But It's Not The Only Thing That Matters

According to many studies, patients who are given insulin to treat diabetes tend to gain weight. This is nothing new and has been known in the scientific community for years. From scientific journals such as Diabetes, Diabetic Medicine, Diabetes and Metabolism, weight gain has been a known side effect of insulin therapy.

Calories matter but that's not all that matters. Diabetics and other people with hormone problems prove this every day. Hormones also matter, a lot more than we think. And eating less of the food that is hormonally poor to begin is a quick fix but not an ultimate solution. So weight comes back.

Also exercising in ways that are hormonally irrelevant is not a long term solution. We love mindless easy work outs that take all day to do.

We need to eat more foods that our bodies were designed to eat. That keep our hormones in balance. Exercising in ways that rev up our metabolism and keeps our hormones active.

Some say insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. We've been told the same thing over and over about eating and exercise and we keep expecting new results.
