Here's the most important thing about fats . . .
They don’t trigger your body’s fat storage mechanism. Weird right?
When you eat sweet foods however, your blood sugar levels rise very quickly, which forces your pancreas to release insulin. It’s insulin’s job to remove excess sugar from your blood and store it as glycogen, until it can’t store any more.
It then resorts to storing it as triglycerides (fat). In other words, as fat on your belly, thighs, bottom, arms and even your neck and face.
What makes it worse is that once insulin is released, glucagon, its partner hormone, can’t do what it does, which is to move stored sugar back into the blood to use as energy.
