Affecting up to 71% of the entire population, resistance to the hormone that controls your blood sugar called insulin is very common and can lead to significant weight gain especially in the abdomen and upper part of the body. Since insulin resistance leads to metabolic starvation shutting your fat stores from being released, it can in fact make you crave carbohydrates and contribute to further weight gain.
