Insulin resistance occurs when cholesterol deficient cells can no longer let glucose into them. In order to utilize insulin, the cells need cholesterol, vitamin D and calcium. Fat and Cholesterol are beneficial partners – they coexist in the cell. Excess abdominal fat is a result of the immune system attempting to protect damaged cholesterol from getting into the organs. Fat and Cholesterol accumulate in the dysfunctional fat cells in the abdominal area – keeping it away from our vital organs. It might surprise you to learn that obesity and anorexia are two sides of the same coin. Anorexia, like obesity, is a result of a high carbohydrate diet with severe cholesterol deficiency. Without good fats, such as coconut oil, lard, duck fat, ghee or beef tallow – our weight cannot properly stabilize.
