Absolutely. And that's the primary basis for the low/restricted-carb lifestyle that all our "experts" are warning us is so unhealthy and dangerous.

I'm fond of repeating, real information, research, and science is out there.
It's too bad nutritional mythinformation is still so widespread, and showing no signs of correction.

Those of us who do our studying are reaping the health benefits. Wish we could reach others who are struggling.

Here is a great case where lifestyle can affect obesity diseases leading to even more obesity related problems.

FROM THE ARTICLE CITED IN THE ORIGINAL POST OF THIS THREAD
www.womentowomen.com/insulinresistance/wha
tisinsulinresistance.aspx


"The unfortunate truth is that anyone can become insulin resistant — even if she is thin because we have access to a lot of refined carbohydrates (white bread, sugar, bagels, pasta, potatoes, sodas, processed foods with added fructose, etc.). In fact, most of us are likely to be somewhat resistant to insulin. It is just a matter of degree. The more processed and refined food that we eat, the more insulin we require to metabolize it. The more insulin in our blood, the less responsive our cells become. As we age, this continual exposure wears out our tolerance for refined carbohydrates and reduces our sensitivity to insulin.

If you suffer from high cholesterol, high triglycerides, or hypertension, you should get checked for insulin resistance, regardless of your weight or age. If you have high blood pressure, it is likely that you are also suffering from insulin resistance"

Every American should read that article! Very concise and to the point.

This is a great point:

"Our metabolism evolved eons ago, when our diet included fewer (and more complex) carbohydrates. Today most calories in an average diet come in the form of carbohydrates, and most of those are simple carbohydrates — sugars that quickly enter the bloodstream."

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?

The important thing to remember or learn about insulin resistance is it increases the risk of developing pre-diabetes which leads type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Insulin resistance can be reversed by losing weight, eating a healthy diet and increasing physical activity.

So all of the healthy things that we are trying to incorporate into our lives really do have big payoffs!

Thanks for sharing the article.

Until 5 years ago, I would classify my eating habits as TERRIBLE.
My doctor warned me that I was borderline pre-diabetic. I got scared.
It took a big scare to get me to change my ways.
I’ve totally changed my eating habits since then, but I know I need to be proactive.
So I look for info and try to better my odds.

I found this great article. Interesting read
