We’ve all been bombarded with articles stating that insulin makes us fat and to cut back on carbs because carbohydrates cause the pancreas to create insulin. It doesn’t matter if the insulin is created in your body or is synthetic because either type causes weight gain. For years I believed this nonsense and thought that since I have to take daily insulin injections, I would never have flat abs. I am proof that you can be an insulin-dependent diabetic who eats carbs AND have flat a stomach (yes, that’s me above).
Keep track of your calories and keep your carbohydrate intake at a max of 60% of your total intake and you’ll see your stomach flatten, even if you’re diabetic.
