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. One such hormone is insulin. Insulin is a hormone produced by your pancreas that is essential for life. People who have type 1 diabetes don’t produce insulin because the cells in the pancreas that produce them have been destroyed. As a result, they’ll die unless treated with insulin. 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.
