If your body is resistant to dropping the pounds, taking charge of this one hormone could change your life.
With The TakeDown Challenge officially beginning this Friday, (and weigh-ins starting today and going through Wednesday), I wanted to share some fascinating research you’ll want to keep in mind.
It has to do with how sensitive your body is to a certain hormone — the only hormone that you have near 100% control over — and why it’s near impossible to be healthy and lean without being sensitive to it.
I am, of course, referring to insulin sensitivity, and it’s ability to trigger fat loss.
Plus, I’m going to share with you an interesting ingredient that you already have in your kitchen that research proves can reduce your insulin response to high carb meals.
And before we continue, I think it will be helpful to define what we mean by insulin sensitivity, but I promise to keep this simple and easy to understand.
First of all, the hormone insulin helps to regulate your blood sugar after a meal.
When you body is sensitive to insulin, it requires minimal amounts of insulin to lower your blood glucose after a meal.
But when you are insulin resistant, your body needs a lot more insulin to lower your blood glucose levels.
Naturally, then, as insulin resistance becomes more of a threat to your body, it leads from one disease after another.
Meanwhile, insulin sensitivity is an ally, as it protects, keeps and even restores your health.
So, it’ll probably come as no surprise to learn that the more resistant you body is to insulin, the more resistant your body will be to losing fat.
Not only that but when your body is forced to produce too much insulin over extended periods of time, you’ll find yourself gaining more weight than you ever wanted to carry around on a daily basis.
It gets worse: Insulin resistance ultimately leads to type 2 diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.
Overcoming insulin resistance is one of the primary benefits of entering The TakeDown ChallengeTM and The TakeDown LifeStyleTM programs.
Your job: If you finally want to start losing weight and do it faster, then create an environment that encourages insulin sensitivity, and avoids insulin resistance.
There are several ways to you can do that, to include getting more sleep, eating a better diet, and exercising.
And you should do them all.
But for the purposes of this blog, I’m going to share with you a simple food trick that will improve your insulin sensitivity, and help you start losing weight as early as this week.
Amazingly, this is one of the most scientifically researched ingredients anywhere, and it’s cheap as they come to use.
The best part is that you probably already have this ingredient in your pantry.
What is it? Acetic acid … otherwise known as plain old vinegar.
Now, before the skeptic in you tries to raise objections, I’m going to show you the research so that you can see it for yourself.
When you consider the first research project on the efficacy of vinegar dates all the way back to 1988 and has been repeated and expanded upon over the last 27 years, natural skepticism begins to take a back seat to the research.
Amazingly, these studies do not contradict each other, like so many research projects do.
Instead, these referenced studies focused on vinegar’s ability to ….
- Lower blood glucose levels, (that means it fights insulin resistance), between 20-35%. That’s as good as many prescription drugs. (1)
- Improve body fat and waist circumference from just 15 ml of vinegar a day. (2)
- Increase energy expenditure from as little as a teaspoon full of vinegar. (3)
- Reduce post-meal sugar spikes in type 2 diabetics. (4)
- Improve satiety, helping you eat less (5)
One of the best parts of all this is that using vinegar in your salads can provide these benefits.
So, if you desire to drop pounds, normalize your blood sugar, or just feel less hungry between meals, start adding a daily dose of vinegar to your diet.
Your body is going to thank you for it.
You’ll lose 12 to 24 pounds in only 28 days, or I’ll insist on refunding 100% of your investment.
