    Does insulin automatically cause weight gain?

    I keep hearing that insulin 'makes it harder' to lose weight. I have also read reports that it can make you gain weight. If I took insulin is there a sure fire way to make sure I don't gain any weight?
    If I took up weight lifting could I keep off the fat or will it come regardless?

    Yes insulin is a weight gain agent for me and yes countermeasure are for sure needed. Weight weight lifting I have a lot of tummy fat still but also some muscle mass.
    Sure fire ? Nothing is sure fire but adding metformin helps and so does a low carb diet to minimize the insulin needed.

    I have been on insulin for 8 years and weigh now what I weighed 8 years ago. I have not gained. I don't think there is a "sure fire" way to make sure you don't gain however it is important to remember that taking insulin is not an OK to eat anything and as much as you want.
    Portion control, eating the right type of carbs and exercise will help.
