Insulin is the Key to Unlock a Healthier Life

Insulin is the Key to Unlock a Healthier Life

I’m going to let you in on an industry wide secret – Learn to improve your insulin sensitivity to reduce body fat, prevent diabetes and live a longer and energetic life.

“If there’s a single marker for life span, its insulin sensitivity” – Dr Ron Rosedale MD, author of the Rosedale Diet

 What is Insulin?

  • Insulin is a hormone released by the pancreas primarily after you eat a carbohydrate rich meal.
  • After carbohydrates are broken down and absorbed into the bloodstream, they increase your blood sugar level to which the Pancreas detects and releases insulin to process the blood sugar, also known as glucose, into fat and muscle cells.
  • Insulin sensitivity is the ability to absorb this glucose into muscle and fat cells to be turned into energy.

 What is insulin sensitivity & resistance?

  • Every single person’s insulin levels are on the continuum between insulin sensitivity and insulin resistance.
  • Sensitivity refers to the ability to process glucose efficiently, and is the ideal situation we look to attain.
  • Resistance is when the cells are less affected by insulin and can’t process the glucose well, leaving it to be converted and stored as fat.

What can I do to improve my insulin sensitivity?

  1. Manage your sugar intake
    Sugar spikes glucose levels (blood sugar) therefore it is crucial to tailor your own sugar intake to your individual insulin needs.
  1. Eat more green leafy vegetables
    Vegetables are the best nutritional source of carbohydrates, and amongst a host of other essential functions, vegetables (such as broccoli, cauliflower and spinach) are high in fibre, and eaten alongside a balanced diet will improve insulin sensitivity.
  1. Do Strength Training
    Exercise depletes your energy levels in the form of glucose during a workout. Weight Training is one of the most effective forms of improving insulin sensitivity because muscle consumes the majority of the energy transported in the blood. For every 10 percent increase in muscle mass, you get 11 percent reduction in insulin resistance.

Create fat burning, insulin sensitive, energetic life by following the Two Week Challenge today.
