Hi and Welcome Raymona3, I too have battled with insulin resistance and have felt some of the joy on the other side. No- is a Many Spendered Thing when the rewards are better health and better outlook for my future. There are things the doctors are willing to see and some that even the lab tests do not show. I have given up all sugars, yeasts, flours, and additives made from these and other things too, to approach a more relaxed understanding of what food commercials want me to consume and what my own body will use happily. When the insulin resistance signs recede, then I can add back in moderation (maybe) some of the old tried and true fun foods. I take the food allergy challenge and journaling program seriously (three years of self research so far) to find my body what it likes and what ‘I think’ it likes. They are not the same. As I explore the physical demands of my changes, I am sure to hit several emotional barriers among the hills and valleys of these changes. Remember to love yourself along the way- YOU ARE WORTH IT!
The greatest love story is your own. If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win. You are the happiness master of your own mind. Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good. Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness. I may not recognize the significance until some time later. Is my resistance to change really that strong? Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson; Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Welcome to the team! Sometimes it helps to make a list of the foods that you CAN have that will not spike your blood sugar levels, and make menus from there (rather than focusing on what you can't have). There are still plenty of good foods that you can have and you will be feeling better soon.
You certainly are not alone. Its tough at first but take it step by step. In the begining it took me hours to do groceries cause I had to read every label. You will get the hang of it. Many things are made with rice, but you can choose brown rice for a slightly healthier twist.
Hi everyone. I am so very grateful for such a group Iwas diagnosed with celiac diseas last week and since then i have been feeling overwhelmed due to the constant reading and elimiating of foods. I am now most overwhelmed because i am battle insulin resistant and now i hve to find food that will not encourage weight gain, as i have realize most of the gluten free foods are made from white product such as rice etc. But i am very happy i found you guys. A t least will not be alone.
