Dear Dr. G,

how are you? First, as always I am thankful for all your effort to respond to the messages to all of us on this board.

I am interested in your take on insulin vs glucagon. What do you say to this:

"Insulin is created when we intake sugars and glucagon is created when we intake fats. Insulin is a fat storing hormone and glucagon is a fat burning hormone. So, you have to eat fats to burn fats".

My thoughts:

- If this was true, people who eat high fat diets would be generally more slim and people who eat high fruit diets would be generally fat.

- The author apparently doesn't mention fruit, but sugar.

- One can get fat or slim on ANY diet. Yes, I am sure of this, because I see people in good outside physical shape on many different diets and in bad outside and apparently inside shape on also many different diets.

I would like to hear your take on this.

I hope all is well,
