Dietary Approaches to Reversing Insulin Resistance

So what is the rationale for lowering carbohydrate intake to reduce insulin resistance? It’s really quite simple. Logic tells us that the macronutrient balance of a meal will determine the amount of insulin released:

  • Carbohydrate stimulates insulin release.
  • Fat has no significant impact on insulin release.
  • Protein stimulates insulin (although less than carbohydrate) but also stimulates glucagon release which counteracts this.

Measuring insulin and sugar levels after eating confirms this impact with higher carbohydrate meals consistently producing higher peaks in glucose and then insulin response – usually followed by a sharp fall with a hypoglycaemic…
