Is Your Weight Controlled by Calories or Insulin?

What really matters for weight loss? Calories in and calories out, or is our body weight carefully regulated by hormones, like the fat-storing hormone insulin?

In this presentation from the 2015 LCHF Conference in Cape Town I describe why the second explanation – about hormones – makes much more sense. And why the first one – about calories – is a simplistic description that completely fails to address the cause of obesity.

You can watch a segment above. For the full presentation you can buy access to the entire LCHF convention for $49 dollars from the organizers.

There’s a free option too – you can watch this presentation and more than a hundred interviews, video courses, other presentations and movies on our member site with a free trial.

    Good Afternoon
    My name is Viola I started your diet Yesterday Sept. 7 2016.
    I tried your creamed cabbage and sausage it was great but I found around 10:00 last night I was a bit hungry I ate a bit of ice cream about 1/3 cup and this morning when I checked my sugar it was 134 I know this is not an over night thing but I was a bit alarmed by it can i expect this to happen? I am going to continue with the diet I really like the food. I DO NOT WANT TO STAY ON THE INSULIN I only take 14 units every day before bed and I have stopped it about a week ago is this why it happened should I stay on the insulin until I see the progress? I believe I am not going to any progress if I stay on it. Please let me know what I should do.

    thank-you
    Viola
