I found this on another site. A man is telling what his doctor told him about insulin and weight gain, in his own words. What do you think?
"The doctor explained we gain weight is cause our bodies had been used to the high sugar levels so things passed through. Now with better control of the sugar levels our bodies is now grabbing more nutrients and trying to store them. And with cold weather around the corner we will tend to want to eat more to store fat."
He was diabetic for a long time and did not gain weight with the insulin used back then. It was the same with me for 50 years. The body did not store the fatty material while there was so much high blood sugar. Then the modern day insulins entered the picture, the blood sugar was under much better control and there was no longer a lot of high blood sugar. That causes the body to store the fatty material in the food we eat. Thus there is weight gain. In my case that was 57 pounds in the 1990s. I have lost 26 pounds but still need to lose 31 more pounds. Exercise and low carbs helps because that results in lower insulin dosages and the less insulin we use, the more weight we can lose.
