Diets often fail or leave you flaccid because most peoples who follow diet plans do not make any physical activity and because those diets are designed to burn either protein or carbohydrate calories, while ignoring fat tissue and as a result you lose muscle tissue. By simply consuming foods that manipulate the production of insulin, your body can double the number of fat burning calories it gets rid off, leaving you with much more lean muscle mass.

Insulin is a hormoneproduced by the pancreas and released into the bloodstream after every meal. Its job is to transport recently eaten calories into the muscle cells, so that these calories are converted into energy. But, when too much insulin is released into the bloodstream and too many calories are transported into the muscle cells, the body begins to transport these extra calories into the fat cells. They are now stored as fat tissue. This results in excess weight. The more insulin that gets released after each meal presage, the fatter you will be. As well, the less insulin, the more fat you will burn and the leaner you become.
The secret is in adopting a diet that contains food which will minimize the release of insulin into the blood stream after each meal keeping insulin levels low and do not become stored as fat tissue.
How to do this?
Well, first you have to know that not all carbohydrate foods are equal; in fact they behave quite differently in our bodies. The glycemic index (GI) describes this difference by ranking carbohydrates according to their effect on our blood glucose levels. Choosing low GI carbohydrates (the ones that produce only small variations in our blood glucose and insulin levels) is the secret to long-term health reducing your risk of heart disease and diabetes and is the key to an efficient weight loss.
Tips for eating a low GI diet:
· Eat breakfast cereals based on oats, barley and bran
· Eat breads with whole grains, stone-ground flour, sour dough
· Reduce the amount of potatoes you eat
· Enjoy low GI fruits (pears, apples, oranges, strawberries, etc.)
· Eat brown rice and whole wheat pasta
· Eat plenty of vegetables
If you are careful to do this, then you will find losing weight and weight maintenance much more efficient. Also, be sure to add cardiovascular exercise and resistance training. This will help you tone up and burn calories even while at rest. It will also allow you to indulge yourself with a little dessert sometimes. If you do these things, you will be able to lose the weight and keep it off.
