Medical visualization of the process of weight gain. 1) You think about eating carb-rich food. 2) Your pancreas begins secreting insulin. 3) Insulin tells your body to store fatty acids and prevents you from burning fat. 4) You get hungry and start eating. 5) Digested carbohydrates enter your bloodstream as glucose and your blood sugar levels rise. 6) Your pancreas secretes more insulin in response to high blood sugar. 7) Insulin allows blood sugar to enter cells. 8) Insulin tells fat from your meal to stay in your fat cells as triglycerides. 9) Insulin also stops fat from escaping your fat cells, so your fat cells get fatter. 10) Weight gain.
