The #1 “Body Fat-Eating” Hormone
Imagine a rotting corpse draped over your body from head to toe… suffocating tissue, restricting blood flow, damaging joints and infecting your healthy cells.
Shockingly, that nightmare is a reality for most.
64% of women and 74% of men carry too much body fat according to the National Institutes of Health.
It’s choking their organs, assaulting their metabolism and sucking their energy dry.
But here’s the worst part:
For most, this body fat has become “calorie-resistant”. It’s completely unaffected by even the strictest diets… and most intense exercises. This zombie fat is essentially… “dead tissue”.
However, there’s good news:
Obesity researchers have now discovered a “metabolic jumper cable”. It jolts dead body fat back to life. This allows your metabolism to burn it as calories and re-energize your entire body.
Not only do those layers of “zombie fat” start coming off, but your entire body just works better.
Plus, as your whole body burns more calories, those patches of pocket obesity whittle away.
This “metabolic jumper cable” isn’t any exercise, machine or pill.
It’s a little-known, calorie-burning hormone we all have called IGF-1 or Insulin Growth Factor hormone.
Insulin Growth Factor Hormone
Studies show that healthy levels of IGF-1 can devour bodyfat and fortify soft muscle, but it can also reduce your risk of diabetes by 53.7%, a heart attack by 83.3% and stroke by 51.4%.
That’s something worth looking into!
So how do you effectively support and naturally boost this fat-burning hormone?
Studies have found that the glycemic index of foods have a strong influence on IGF-1 levels.
For optimum levels of this fat-burning hormone, you want to focus your diet around low-glycemic foods.
This means lots of fresh veggies and fruits, fiber-rich foods and less starchy and sugary foods.
