[IP] re: insulin to lose weight

Working muscles burn up glucose. Insulin is an anobolic
(tissue building, growth) hormone.  Insulin transports
glucose, protiens, and fat  to cells that need these
nutrients. There is no way, insulin is going to help someone
lose weight...unless they stop eating, keep taking insulin,
and ...we all know what might happen then...comatose or dead
people aren't likely to gain much weight.

>Insulin doesn't burn up the glucose does
 it?  It just makes it available to the cells, and if the
cells don't need
 it, the glucose just  goes into fat, correct? <
