Obesity rates in the U.S. and worldwide are skyrocketing with more than 1/3 of adults clinically obese.  Just as alarming are the 12.5 million children that are obese, according to the Center for Disease Control.

 Along with obesity rates, Type 2 diabetes is also soaring. This comes as no surprise, since 80% of Type 2 diabetics are also obese.

Weight loss can best be done by exercising, as we all know.  But, what is surpising is that the benefits of exercise generates a hormone called irisin that can help you

  • Eliminate “bad” fat cells
  • Increase “good” fat cells
  • Prevent and even reverse Type 2 diabetes
This is good news! In addition to losing weight, the benefits of exercise are enormous!

Good vs Bad Fat

How can there be “good” and “bad” fat? Believe you me, not all fat is created equal. Have you ever heard of “brown fat?” Brown fat differs from the ordinary white fat. White fat stores fat, which is why it is called “bad” fat – helping you pack on the pounds.  On the other hand, brown fat actually burns fat.

“If your goal is to lose weight,” writes Dr. Anthony Komaroff in the Harvard Health Letter, “you want to increase the number of brown fat cells and decrease white fat cells.”

Irisin Hormone Turns Bad Fat into Good Fat

Dr. Bruce Spiegelman, professor of cell biology and medicine at Harvard Medical School, has shown how irisin (in mice) can transform white fat cells into brown ones. Harvard is now developing the process in humans.

The concept is simple.  The more brown fat cells your body has, the more energy you burn during exercise—and after! The power of brown fat cells is that they keep burning fat even after you have quite exercising.

The irisin hormone not only helps you burn calories, it also help prevent and overcome insulin resistance.  This gives you a greater chance of avoiding weight gain and Type 2 diabetes.

Unfortunately, Big Pharma is chomping at the bit to turn irisin into a weight loss and Type 2 diabetes drug.

The great news is that you can make your own irisin hormone to burn fat by exercising – for free, no pills involved.

So what are you waiting for? Why not have the ideal body you always dreamed of and be diabetes free?!
