Is controlling your weight more than just calories in-calories out? There’s little doubt that the diet you eat impacts the levels of hormones that affect your weight and body composition.

This shows how important insulin is for sustaining life. It also plays an important role in controlling body weight, appetite and, when you work out, muscle growth.
