Insulin Sensitivity

A quick post. I'm researching for a post on growth hormone & strength training, but I thought I'd post a quick thought:

"The number one priority for losing weight then is improving insulin sensitivity." This is from Robert McLeod's Entropy Production blog, specifically a post about Feasting and Fasting, from back in March.

In other words, for me to lose weight, my goal should be insulin control. And I do that by controlling my sugar & starch intake, which is why I'm eating low-carb. Healthy eating (by paleolithic standards) doesn't necessarily mean low-carb, but it does if you have insulin sensitivity issues, eg from being overweight.
