Tit bits about reining in insulin

Insulin is one of the main players in regulating metabolism, but there are several other significant metabolic hormones such as glucagon, leptin and adiponectin.   The modern diet tends to cause people to produce too much insulin, too much insulin puts on the pounds, but also eventually results in insulin resistance.  Insulin resistance brings a host of problems including polycystic ovary disease (PCOS), high cholesterol and diabetes.  Reining in the insulin switch, is the key to getting your energy metabolism back in balance.
