Halle Berry achieved impressive results with Keto. She is one of the Hollywood celebs who swear by this high-fat, low-carb diet!
The 53-year-old actress swears by the ketogenic diet for weight management and to help manage her diabetes, which she was diagnosed at the age of 22.

Did you know that Insulin is connected to Belly Fat?
In my latest video, I have explained the connection of Insulin to Belly Fat.
How is it connected, you ask?
Well, when we eat carb-heavy meals, the carb turns into sugar. The pancreas then produces insulin to break out the sugar from the blood and gets it into the cells.
Basically, Insulin feeds the cell which in turn keeps it from storing sugar in our body particularly in areas such as kidney, liver, muscles, and the brain.
Once the sugar storage in our body becomes full, insulin will take the excess sugar and convert it into fat.
Since our body has a bigger fat storage than sugar storage, the excess sugar from carbs usually turn into belly fat.
While insulin helps turn sugar into fat, it is not really at fault for making you fatter. Whether it will have excess sugar to convert depends on your eating habits.
If you consume too much sugar...

Did you just take a cheat day? Don’t feel guilty! Instead of feeling bad, why don’t you just focus on getting back on track instead?
