 Fat cells release resistin which causes insulin resistence

I note that the diet wars are flaring up in this NG.  Let's get one
thing
straight: ANY diet that causes you to lose weight will lower your
lipid numbers and improve your insulin sensitivity.  It's the body
fat that causes the problems not the cooking.net">food you eat.  You could eat
a diet of sardines or a diet of broccoli.  It doesn't matter.  What
matters
is that you lose weight.  And the only thing a dieter needs to do is
to burn more calories than he eats.

Also I notice that the Atkins diet has mutated from a steak and eggs
diet into the Mediterranean diet.  That's good.

Anyhow the basic science is that fat cells release a hormone called
resistin which causes insulin resistance.  Yes, diabetes isn't a
disease.
It's our bodies way of forcing weight loss.  Lots of diabetics first
seek
out doctors when they lose lots of weight for no reason.  You see,
Mother Nature hates fat animals.  Fat animals can't run very fast.
Thus Mother Nature kicks in the insulin resistance so that the excess
glucose will be pissed out rather than stored as body fat.  Of course,
this is not a good long term solution but Mother Nature is more
concerned about the short term.

A fat person who lowers their carbs significantly BUT does not lose
weight can lower their lipids significantly.  A person who counts
calories and loses weight on a very high carb diet MAY not lower their
lipids.  A person at normal weight may have very high lipids that will
reduce considerably if they change the ratio of foods eaten, i.e. much
lower carb.  Insulince resistance does improve with weight loss, you
got that one right.
