The Back Story

Fat loss is all about hormone balance. Got hormone balance? Fat loss will be allowed. Don’t have hormone balance? Fat burning not possible. You might burn muscle, you might lower your metabolic rate, but you won’t burn fat.

The #1 influencer of our hormones is the foods we eat.

The hormone we REALLY want to balance for fat loss? Insulin. We absolutely need to be responsive to insulin if we want to lose fat and keep it off. The 8 foods & ingredients today help with either insulin responsiveness or glucose metabolism.
