Losing weight is not as simple as calories in and calories out. It affects each person differently even when following the same protocol of diet and exercise. For the clinically obese, they may build up an insulin resistance. As with many things, this is not a black and white issue. Insulin resistance is a precursor to diabetes in most cases. Usually severe insulin resistance in the liver ends up resulting in diabetes.
If you have insulin resistance, which usually is the case in the overweight and obese, you have many detrimental consequences that completely change the way your metabolism behaves. One of the best ways to manage this is to change your eating habits.
Set some goals to include more protein, fiber, and water in your diet on
a daily basis. For instance, if you normally have toast, oatmeal, or cereal for breakfast, try adding egg whites, hard boiled eggs, or a protein shake. Not
only will this make you feel fuller, but it will lower the insulin produced at that meal. Instead of changing your whole diet, just pick one meal to change for four weeks. In time, you can add other meals to include more of the macronutrients required to help lower insulin.
