It’s human nature to label something as good or bad, but this myopic outlook often does us more harm than good.
Those wanting fat loss call insulin the “bad” hormone that’s making us chubby by inhibiting fat burning and increasing fat storage. Those wanting muscle growth call insulin the anabolic and anti-catabolic phenomenon.
How can one hormone be a fat boy’s nemesis and a skinny boy’s best defense?
The truth is, insulin is like a weapon: it can hurt you or help you. And the good news is we can accurately predict how insulin will act.
