Diabetic Diet for Obesity. Weight Loss and Obesity

Obesity, particularly abdominal obesity (accumulation of fat tissue above hips), leads to the production of a number of metabolic products, hormones, and cytokines that favor decreased insulin sensitivity in the liver, muscles, and cardiovascular system. Insulin normally stimulates glucose uptake in muscle and fat, reduces glucose output by liver, and inhibits lipolysis in fat tissue (adipose tissue). In obesity, an increase in free fatty acids from more lipolytically active abdominal adipose cells decreases insulin action in the muscle, fat, and liver.
