Default Adipose tissue insulin sensitivity

"Insulin reduces mobilization of fatty acids from adipose tissue by inhibiting triglyceride lipase" - from the last link

My summary in laymens term's:
Bigger fat cells = more insulin resistant adipose tissue
Too much insulin -> represses fat mobilization
Vicious cycle, get fatter.

Do the same things which increase muscle tissue insulin sensitivity, (i.e. proper timing of carbs, exercise, supplementation with chromium, ALA, etc, etc) also increase adipose tissue insulin sensitivity?

Or are there other things we can do to improve adipose tissue insulin sensitivity?
