High blood sugar causes cells to be resistant to insulin.
When we eat, food is broken down and absorbed into the bloodstream for fuel and building blocks.
Carbhydrates create the strongest insulin response because they raise blood sugar the most. When blood sugar goes up, insulin comes in to guide and assist blood sugar out of bloodstream into the cells.
Protein creates a mild to moderate insulin response.
Fat hardly creates an insulin response.
Blood can only hold 1 tsp (approx 20 calories) at a time. The excess goes into the cells. The cells use what they need and convert the rest into glycogen and fat.
When you eat a lot of carbs, blood sugar spills over and dumps into cells and eventually overloads. The overload spills out causing fatty liver, belly fat, fatty cells..
Reverse Insulin resistance by:
1. Cutting sugar
2. Reducing carb consumption
3. Practice Intermittent fasting
5. De-stress - Stress creates cortisol which raises blood sugar.
6. Do the opposite of what the government guidelines advise.
