Consequently, sugar stays in the bloodstream, and the rising blood sugar levels themselves become a cause of diabetes, and cells in the body shut down receptor sites and become "insulin resistant." Insulin resistance protects a cell from receiving an incoming flood of sugar that would "burn out" its metabolic machinery. What can women do about the size of their fat cells? It turns out that there is quite a lot.

A fat cell grows large if it's always taking fat in and never letting fat out. Fat cells don't generate the fat-releasing enzymes they need to shrink if there is a constant excess of digested food in circulation in your body. There has to be at least an occasional respite from the need to store, store, store, for fat cells to stay a normal size, and remain sensitive to insulin.

That's why low-calorie dieting, even occasionally, or an occasional 12 to 18 hour fast, can be very helpful in breaking the cycles that keep women overweight and at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Women who diet, and, better yet, diet and get resistance exercise, can eventually deal with the implications of both waist size and fat cell size for their Type 2 diabetes risk.
