Words To Literally Live By

Good advice from Ditch The Carbs on how to avoid insulin resistance:

  • If it says “light”, “low fat” or “fat free” it must stay in the grocery store – if they took the fat out, they put carbs and chemicals back in
  • Eat real food – real food does not come in a box and no one should need a label to tell you it’s ‘natural’
  • Eat when you are hungry. Don’t eat when you are not – no matter what the clock says
  • No grains, potatoes or sugars – most grains are highly processed, high in carbs, fortified

Insulin resistance is really what Diabetes is all about. In essence, insulin resistance is your body's toxic reaction to eating too many carbs. You eat too many carbs, your body produces insulin and if you do this continuously, you can push your body to the point that you become resistant to it. The only way to stop or prevent this process is to eat a low carb, high fat diet or at a minimum, low sugar, low carb.

It's such a small price to pay to be healthy. Far less expensive then diabetes, for sure.
