Cure Insulin Resistance
Is it possible to cure insulin resistance?
It may be possible to cure insulin resistance by following a range of simply strategies including, a nutritional plan, a exercise plan, and a specific range of nutritional supplements.
In this article we will cover each these areas so you can not only have a better understanding about the mechanism behind insulin resistance and how to overcome it but also you will have a workable plan that you can easily incorporate into your lifestyle.
Insulin resistance (IR) mean that the body's cells are unable to bind to insulin. This means that nutrients can't enter the cells and therefore remain in the blood stream. It is characterised by the insulin resistance symptoms. It is often associated with people who have diabetes, women who suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and people who use certain medications.
Insulin resistance leads to high levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood stream, which may cause a variety of health conditions and complications. If it continues for an extended period of time it can lead to coronary heart disease, peripheral neuropathy and blindness, plus many more diseases.
Even though insulin resistance and diabetes are becoming common place in society today, there are some simple steps you can take to prevent you from ever getting the disease and even if you do have it, these strategies can help reverse the condition.
1. Consume regular, small mealsOf course, there is nothing wrong with having a big meal occasionally, but as a general rule you must control your meal sizes. This will prevent excessive insulin production, which may exacerbate the insulin resistance condition. Ideally, 5 or 6 small meals a day is something you should aim to do on a regular basis.
The problem with eating larger meals is that they cause more insulin to be produced relative to smaller meals. This occurs because a greater amount of nutrients needs to be stored in the body. Therefore, in order to reverse insulin resistance you must reduce the amount of insulin that gets produced in the first place and the best way to do that is by consuming smaller meals.
Consuming smaller meals doesn't mean you have to feel hungry all the time either. It is still possible to consume the same amount of food as you normally would, it just means you should spread it over 5 or 6 small meals instead of 3. Not only will keeping insulin low help you overcome or prevent insulin resistance, but it will also encourage your body to use more stored body fat as a source of fuel.

2. Eat fewer processed carbsAs a general rule, processed carbs cause a rapid rise in your blood sugar level after consumption. This then induces a corresponding spike in insulin as well.
If the insulin receptors on body cells get continuously bound to by insulin, over time, they become de-sensitised to insulin, ie. they become insulin resistant. By reducing your intake of refined carbs you decrease insulin secretion. This means that the likelihood of insulin resistance occurring is also reduced.
Some examples of refined carbohydrates include: bread, pasta, rice, cereals, baked goods, etc.

3. Decrease your intake of
Consuming carbs causes a far greater insulin spike compared to protein and fat. Therefore, a reduction in your intake of carbs will reduce your pancreas' secretion of insulin, which will help to reverse insulin resistance.
