It burns fat by helping lower insulin in the body. This slightly decreased insulin level stops the body from storing as much sugar and fat. A high insulin level tells your body its time to eat. By decreasing the insulin in your body, it helps curb your appetite and cravings and that is really the hardest part of any diet.
