Having trouble losing the "love handles" or "jelly belly?" You may be caught in the vicious cycle of eating TOO many carbohydrates, especially the kinds you think are healthy - bagels, pasta, rice, cereals, breads. This causes an excessive amount of blood sugar, which results in an excessive amount of insulin to be shot into your bloodstream. Insulin is also known as the fat "gatekeeper," storing excess calories while at the same time locking in whatever fat it can get. Try decreasing your intake of these starchy carbs and substitute them with fiber-rich fruits and vegetables and see what happens.
