Back in 2008 I was diagnosed with insulin resistance. My physician gave me the book, The Insulin-Resistance Diet, by Cheryle R. Hart, M.D. and Mary Kay Grossman, R.D. and suggested that I use it to learn more about insulin resistance and how my body responds to glucose. I have to say that at first I was skeptical because I really hate the word "diet". I always imagine a LOT of restriction with short-term gains, I'm just not into that. I prefer slow progress that is actually sustatinable for a lifetime! That said, I learned a lot from the book and though it says "diet" in the title, I think it was more of a "selling" point than a reflection of my idea of what the word "diet" means. I'd like to share what I hope will be helpful to those who may be fighting insulin resistance.
