Key Points

• Insulin is the hormone that transports glucose from your blood to your cells, where it can be converted to energy. The liver will convert excess glucose to glycogen, which is stored in the liver and muscles for additional, accessible energy.

• Remaining glucose will be converted to fat and stored throughout the body.

• Excessive carbohydrate intake results in an oversupply of glucose, and thus insulin, in the body.

• An ongoing cycle of excess blood glucose overproduction and insulin overproduction eventually results in hyperinsulinism and ultimately diabetes.

• Hyperinsulinism is what makes it hard for many people to lose weight.

• Atkins can stabilize insulin production to make it easier to lose weight.

• High levels of triglycerides in the blood are a proven risk factor for heart disease and stroke.

• Atkins can sharply reduce your risk of blood-sugar disorders-and by extension, heart disease and other serious ailments.
