Insulin Index

It takes 3 hours for the insulin hormone to leave the bloodstream, the body cannot lose weight while insulin is present.

 

Insulin Index weight lost - Dieting

1. Insulin stays in the blood for 3 hours.

2. While insulin is in the blood, the body will not process fat cells.

3. After insulin leaves the blood, the body can use fat cells for energy.

4. The longer the time without food, or insulin, the more we lose weight.

5. Human growth hormone is super secreted in last hours of fast.

Example:

I am only eating between 12:00 noon, and 2:00 PM

I have 2 hours, whereby I can eat anything, but to optimize my diet, I need to remove all GPS - Grains, Potatoes, Sugars. I need the least insulin secreting food, the least sugar.

22 hours of fast, no eating.

To maximize HGH, Human Growth Hormone secretion, I do all my exercise in the last 2-4 hours before the end of fast.

From 8:00 AM to 12 PM noon, is when I exercise.

When friends want me to eat dinner, I start my 2 hour window of eating, at the time the dinner starts.

Thank you, Andy Lee Graham

Insulin Hormone

1. It regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein by promoting the absorption of, especially, glucose from the blood into fat, liver and skeletal muscle cell.
