Insulin Resistance + Midsection Weight Gain: FVY326


Fatigue? Sugar cravings? Midsection weight gain? Struggle losing weight? These are all signs of insulin resistance, and there’s at least a 1 in 3 chance you have it (higher if you’re over 50).

Insulin is a hormone, produced in the pancreas, that stimulates cells in the muscle, liver, and fat tissue to store sugar.  Insulin resistance is simply having chronically elevated levels of insulin (also called hyperinsulinemia). Untreated, it can lead to type 2 diabetes.

The problem isn’t insulin; it’s the body’s response to insulin. Cells in your muscles, body fat, and liver stop responding to the signal that the hormone insulin is trying to send out – which is to take glucose out of the bloodstream and store it in cells.

In this week’s podcast I share:
✔︎ Why we get insulin resistance in the first place and why you should care
✔︎ How to tell if you are insulin resistant
✔︎ How to become more insulin sensitive and possibly reverse insulin resistance 

I’m glad you’re here,
