Reverse Insulin Resistance NOW
Is this you?
- Do you have a belly that exceeds your hips?
- Are you still hungry or crave sweets after your meals?
- Do you feel groggy and foggy after your meals?
- Do you have high LDL Cholesterol, high blood pressure, high blood sugar and high Triglycerides.
If this does sound like you, you are not alone. Atleast 70-80 million people in the US alone have Insulin Resistance. The good news is – you can prevent it and reverse it naturally with diet, lifestyle and nutritional interventions.
What is Insulin Resistance?
Insulin Resistance (also known as Pre-Diabetes) is when our body no longer hears the message of insulin. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that regulates the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood by helping glucose get into the cells. It opens the door to your cells for glucose to get in.
This can go very wrong if someone has too much sugar and carbohydrate intake over a long period of time. This makes insulin get very tired of hearing the message over and over to store MORE sugar into the cells. The result is Insulin Resistance. Insulin Resistance is when insulin cannot open the door to your cells anymore to drop off sugar for it to be burned as energy. That sugar begins to damage the tissues of the body and is also stored as fat and triglycerides. The insulin also remains high because it is trying so hard to get your blood sugar into your cells. Eventually, this can lead to Type 2 Diabetes as your pancreas wears down it’s production of insulin.
Signs of Insulin Resistance are:
- Extra Weight (particularly around the middle)
- Type 2 diabetes
- Blood Sugar Imbalances
- High blood pressure
- Abnormal cholesterol levels
- Heart disease
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome
Why the Worry?
Insulin Resistance, also known as Metabolic Syndrome and Pre-Diabetes is reaching epidemic proportions around the globe with 70-80 million people in the US alone.
Insulin Resistance has become recognized as the gateway to many of the chronic diseases that have emerged so strongly in the 21st century. Many of the chronic diseases today are offshoots of Insulin Resistance. It is the starting point of a variety of diseases processes such as:
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Cancers (prostate, breast, ovarian)
It is a condition that can have devastating consequences. It is also a condition that can be prevented AND reversed with diet, lifestyle and specific nutritional interventions. Yes, there IS something you can do about it.
Why the Belly?
You might call it a potbelly, a pooch, a gut, a beer belly. This is one of the best indicators that you may have an early or progressed stage of Insulin Resistance. Look down at your toes. Do you see your belly instead of your toes? Or stand to the side and look at yourself in the mirror. You get the point. Most likely, you KNOW if your belly exceeds your hips. Nonetheless, this is an indication that you may very well be developing Insulin Resistance.
With Insulin Resistance, your insulin levels remain high. There are many insulin receptors in tummy fat. Insulin is a fat storage hormone. High levels of insulin block you from burning fat and enhances fat storage. Double whammy.
Not only that, belly fat is unlike other fat in your body. It is charged with fat and inflammatory “switches”. Ready and waiting at any moment to make fat and inflammation. These messages from your belly fat communicate to the rest of your body creating problems that result in chronic disease. Inflammation in the belly fat can mean inflammation in any other part of the body – including the brain.
There are 2 Types of Belly Fat
They are both serious health risks, however they are each a little different. Both of them greatly increase the risk your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, various forms of cancer, and other chronic, degenerative diseases.
- Subcutaneous Fat - This fat lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.
- Visceral Fat - This fat lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat gives men the "beer belly" appearance where their abdomen protrudes excessively but at the same time, also feels sort of hard if you push on it. This type of fat is more dangerous. It releases more inflammation into the body.

Hypoglycemia is another serious condition regarding blood sugar regulation. Hypoglycemia is when your blood sugar has gone too low. Low blood sugar results in an inadequate supply of glucose to the brain and causes a serious strain to the body and can be dangerous.
Typically, people may notice symptoms such as shakiness, weakness and altered mood and thinking when they have waited too long to eat or have missed a meal. Ever notice that you get cranky and a little shaky when you have missed a meal?
Hypoglycemia is serious. This is your body in an acute stress response to get glucose (blood sugar) to the brain. If you continually put your body through this cycle of stress you are prematurely aging your body AND your brain.
Do you ever:
- Crave sweets during the day?
- Get irritable if meals are missed?
- Depend on coffee to keep yourself going or started?
- Get lightheaded if meals are missed?
- Feel like eating relieves fatigue?
- Feel shaky, jittery, or have tremors?
- Get agitated, easily upset, nervous?
- Have poor memory or feel forgetful?
- Wake up in the middle of the night?
Hypoglycemia goes way beyond just making you feel weak and shaky. Your adrenals are releasing stress hormones to shake stored sugar from your muscles and liver. That is why you get cranky and shaky. You have cortisol and adrenaline being released into your system triggering a process to pull stored sugar from your muscles and liver into your blood stream so it can get to the brain and your cells.
Simultaneously, insulin is released to help the glucose get into the cells and to bring the blood sugar back down to normal. All of this happens when you wait too long to eat or skip a meal. Consider it a roller-coaster that happens at the expense of your healthy sugar metabolism AND your health. Over time this roller coaster will damage your brain, make your pack on belly weight and set the stage for insulin resistance and premature aging.
Sound extreme? Well, it’s not. For example, chronic bouts of low blood sugar impact your brain in many ways. One of the many ways is that when cortisol is released in response to your low blood sugar (remember cortisol is released to get your blood sugar back up to normal), the cortisol impacts a part of your brain called the Hippocampus. This part of brain is what enables your short term memory. Have you ever waited too long to eat or skipped meals and felt like your memory was diminished? Well, your hippocamus is being affecting in addition to brain fog kicking in because of the lack of glucose for your brain cells to function optimally.
Additionally, chronic bouts of low blood sugar will make you susceptible to pack on belly weight. Why? Because of the chronic release of cortisol and insulin to regulate your blood sugar back to normal. Both cortisol and excess Insulin will make you pack on weight around your belly.
All of this puts tremendous strain on your Adrenals, the small walnut sized glands that sit on top of your kidneys. Every time your blood sugar goes low, your adrenal glands have to rally to secrete cortisol and adrenaline. This can fatigue and wear out your adrenal glands to the point of making you ALWAYS feel tired.
To avoid hypoglycemia it is import to eat glycemically balanced meals and not go more than 5 hours without eating. Avoid eating sugars, caffeine, sugary drinks and excessive carbohydrates. For snacks have something with a little protein, fat and carbs, such as a sliced apple with almond butter.
