I am currently fighting insulin resistance, so I went to the library to check out some books on the subject. I'm a speed reader since I was a kid so I have already gone through 3 of the books. One that really made an impression on me is The Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress, RD, CDE. 2009 Edition (I'm guessing that RD stands for Registered Dietician - have no idea what CDE stands for.
Anyway, it's written by someone who developed insulin resistance herself. She knows how hard it is to get any weight off. It's a lowcarb plan with 3 steps. All lowcarbs are similar to Atkins. But this one really basically tells you how to eat, what to eat and has some 5 carb recipes in the back. 3 meals, 2 snacks and 5 carbs (net) at each feeding when you are in step one. Easy, simple knowledge.
Step two ups it between 10 - 20 net carbs at each feeding.
Haven't tried it yet, but will attempt it tomorrow. I really like the way it is written - kind of like a Carbs for Dummies book. (Is there a book out there with that name?)
Anyway, you can check it out at the library (my library name is Mid-Continent) for free or it is available on Amazon and eBay. Of course, she has another later book for Diabetics and Prediabetics and she has a Cookbook.
Just thought I would throw it out there - maybe someone here already knows about it and can offer some insights to us.
