Our bodies use glucose to make energy in our cells. Excess sugar gets stored as FAT in the body Our goal here is to STOP YOUR BODY FROM TURNING FUEL INTO FAT!!!! .
Our bodies respond to an increase of glucose, which can come from a variety of the foods we eat, by producing insulin. Swings in blood glucose cause us to have an increased appetite and feel irritated or depressed and can lead to Insulin Resistance.
