So lot of people know about diabetes, they know about blood sugar issues, but they've never heard of something called insulin resistance, which is really at the root of all these problems. The root of obesity and the root of diabetes which is why I call it diabesity. Now insulin resistance happens when your body becomes numb to the effects of insulin, because your keeping in so much flour and sugar products that it spikes your blood sugar it spikes your insulin and you have so much insulin floating around your body that it doesn't work anymore, so you need to pump out more and more.

Well the bad news is, that insulin is the fat storage hormone, it makes your body store fat, it makes you store belly fat and it makes you hungrier and it makes you crave sugar and it creates a whole vicious cycle that leads to illness and diabetes.
