What is Insulin Resistance?
Every time you eat, your hormone insulin is excreted from your pancreas. Insulin’s main function is to store sugar from your blood, converted from carbohydrates you have eaten, into your cells. When you eat carbohydrates in excess, your cells are packed full of sugar. Your excess sugar in your blood is eventually stored as fat. When you continue to eat too many carbohydrates, overflowing your cells with sugar, your pancreas becomes tired. Eventually your pancreas does not make enough insulin to keep up with the excess sugar in your blood. This results in high blood sugars and insulin resistance. Your body endures a viscous cycle of weight gain, cravings, headaches, and fatigue. In addition, insulin resistance causes inflammation and results in certain diseases such as type 2 diabetes, alzheimer’s, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and cardiovascular disease.
Being overweight or obese does not necessarily mean you have insulin resistance, although most do. You may have insulin resistance if you carry most of your fat close to your organs despite your weight. This is called your “visceral fat.” Carbohydrate controlled eating plans, along with fasting methods, have scientifically proven to keep your insulin levels low, helping with weight loss, maintenance, and decreased risk for disease.
Modern medicine is using nutrition and fasting methods as medical therapy. Scientifically based, medical nutrition therapy is now at the forefront to assist in reducing the incidence of disease, specifically in the reversal of type 2 diabetes.
As you lower your carbohydrate intake and insulin levels, your body naturally adjusts, you become a fat burner, and you will feel less and less hungry every day. It’s truly amazing and CarbMedicRD.com will show you how!
