In this video, I want to talk about a question I received from someone who was wondering how to reverse insulin resistance.

What is insulin resistance? – It’s a condition where the cells are no longer absorbing insulin. Without insulin, the cells can’t get fuel, so they’re starving. This makes you crave carbohydrates. A signal is then sent to the pancreas, telling it to make more insulin. The average person with insulin resistance has 5-7 times more insulin than normal.

High levels of insulin can create:
• Starved cells
• High blood sugar
• Damage in the body

What causes insulin resistance? – Overexposure to insulin (chronic carbs and frequent eating)

How do we fix this problem? – The prolonged absence of insulin.

If you don’t fix insulin resistance:
• You’re not going to experience weight loss
• You’re going to be hungry all of the time

In my opinion, it takes about 3-8+ months to reverse insulin resistance. My guess is that healthy keto with intermittent fasting is responsible for 90%+ of improvements. Healthy keto provides the key nutrients you need to help speed up the process.

If you want to enhance your results, you can:
• Add exercise
• Lower your stress
• Get more sleep
• Get plenty of nutrients (zinc, vitamin D, chromium, potassium, magnesium)

How do you know if insulin resistance is going away?
1. Your hunger is going down
2. You’re losing belly fat
3. Your blood pressure is going down
4. Your blood sugars are good
5. No dawn phenomenon
6. You have more energy
7. You’re satisfied when you eat
