This insulin makes the fatty cells in our body to store glucose as a natural process to lower the blood sugar levels, and this finally gets converted into fat and thereby, excessive fat and weight gain. So, by eliminating grains and sugar from our diet will skip this entire process.

By maintaining lower blood sugar levels, we also require lower insulin levels. Insulin is the major regulator of our metabolism and by controlling insulin we stop fat from being stored, lose weight, allow fat to be utilized as fuel, improve our blood lipid profile, increased energy, reduce hunger, reduce risk of developing diabetes, and most importantly reduce inflammation that leads to various serious diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia and cancers.
