Aug 1, 2008
Well we are all looking for that magical food that will help us in loosing our weight fast and efficiently. However, to disappoint us, there are no few selected magical foods that will cause weight loss when eaten. But by making some simple change to your eating life style, you can loose weight and keep it that way.

Our pancreas produces 2 hormones namely, glucagen and insulin. These two hormones determine how our body uses carbohydrates as the proportions of these two hormones in your body are critical for the usage of sugar in our body.

Glucagon instructs the liver to release sugars into the blood stream and increase the blood sugar level to a level that is needed for the brain and the rest of the body. Glucagon also signals the cells to release protein and fats for energy production. Insulin on the other hand, is responsible for supplying nutrients to cells. Insulin takes care of keeping the blood sugar levels in check by regulating the transfer of fats protein and sugars from and to the blood stream. If the sugar levels are more insulin instructs the liver to stop releasing sugar and start releasing fat.

When you take in proteins, glucagon is released. When you take in carbs insulin is released. None of them are released when you eat neither proteins nor carbs. if you just take in carbohydrates , the insulin to glucagon ratio shoots up. If only protein is eaten, the insulin to glucagon ratio falls. Hence it is extremely important for you to have a balanced diet with protein, fats, nonstarchy vegetables and carbohydrates which will give you balanced insulin to glucagons ratio which in turn will help you burn fat effectively.
