Your Fat Storage Switch

by Greg Landry, M.S. Exercise Physiologist

The hormone insulin is critical to controlling your blood sugar. It's level in your blood rises when you consume sugar in any form. Today, sugar can be found in almost any processed food you eat. Unfortunately, insulin also causes your body to store fat and it stops your body from burning fat. Fortunately, exercise is very effective at normalizing your insulin level... thus, it turns on your "fat burning switch" and turns off your "fat storage switch"! Every time you exercise this happens!
