As you may or may not know, insulin resistance refers to when it takes higher levels of insulin than it should to transfer energy (glucose) into the cells of your body. It’s important to note that insulin resistance is not diabetes, though it can lead to it. We all, however, can benefit from lower insulin levels. Higher insulin levels lead to greater fat storage and block important signals to the brain. These blocked signals result in greater appetite, lower energy, and cravings for sugary and fatty foods. Insulin resistance is a result of numerous factors, such as carrying extra pounds, improper diet, lack of exercise, stress and lack of sleep.
An increase in insulin resistance can cause severe problems with reaching your fitness goals, and it has also been linked to a raised risk of a host of serious health issues, like obesity, heart disease, cancer and stroke.
However, because the root causes of insulin resistance are varied, it takes more than just a general change in diet or exercise to reach an optimal rate of insulin efficiency (the opposite of insulin resistance).
