The Claim: Low insulin levels are correlated with a shift to a high percentage of fat burning
Although insulin level is correlated to fat loss, it’s not the only hormone responsible for controlling fat storage and burning.
Growth hormone is also essential to cause fat to be released from stores and burned.
In other words, the COMBINATION of low insulin and high growth hormone is the key to releasing and burning fat. Low insulin alone cannot do this by itself.
But none of this is anything you have to worry about because growth hormone will naturally be high when insulin is low (assuming you’re a healthy adult without any diagnosed insulin or growth hormone disorder)
So although this is technically a fact, it’s irrelevant and useless information and focusing on manipulating insulin through weird diets like low carb has caused more harm than good for most people.
