When you are avoiding eating, your body is basically having little insulin in the blood. However, one must note that your body is always using energy; and if you're trying to avoid consuming food, this energy must come from internal stores of complex carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Under these conditions, various organs in your body secrete hormones, hormones such as:

  • Glucagon by the pancreas
  • Growth hormone by the pituitary gland 
  • ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone) by the pituitary gland
  • Epinephrine (adrenaline) by the adrenal gland
  • Thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland

These above listed hormones act on cells of the liver, muscle and fat tissue and have the opposite effects of insulin on your body.

When you avoid eating or you are exercising, your body must draw on its internal energy. Your body's prime source of energy is always glucose. In fact, some cells in your body, such as brain cells, can get energy only and only from glucose. 

Losing Weight and Losing Fat

To do this in a smooth fashion and in a manner that causes no pain to your body, we bring you fat release by Dr. Restivo - your weight loss guide by helping you break down stored fat to be used for energy because one’s weight is determined by the rate at which you store energy from the food that you eat, and the rate at which you use that energy. Always remember, that as your body breaks down these fats, the number of fat cells remains the same; each fat cell simply gets smaller and thus helps you achieve your goal of weight loss.
