25 Simple Ways To Improve Insulin Sensitivity & Prevent Diabetes | Poliquin Article

25 Simple Ways to Improve Insulin Sensitivity & PREVENT Diabetes We’re going to let you in on a little secret: The FIRST thing you should improve when you want to change your body by losing fat or putting on muscle is to improve insulin sensitivity. Insulin sensitivity is SO important for fat loss because when you are insulin resistant, the body is much more likely to store the food you eat as fat. Insulin resistance also produces inflammation in the body, causing a whole bunch of health problems that any sane person wouldn’t want to deal with. Here are 25 simple actions you can take that improve insulin sensitivity. #1: Do strength training and other anaerobic activities. Exercise is absolutely critical for improving insulin sensitivity because your muscles and cells are desperate for fuel during and after your workout. Training modes that build muscle, such as lifting weights or sprints, are most effective for improving insulin sensitivity because muscle consumes the majority of the energy transported in the blood (as much as 90 percent). For every 10 percent increase in muscle mass, you get an 11 percent reduction in insulin resistance. #2: Endurance exercise works too, but Continue reading >>

    Insulin causes crashes, spikes and belly fat

    Just saw my endocrinologist. My blood sugar at the time of the visit was 58 so he gave me two cups of orange juice. And that's after I injected 50 units of Lantus and 25 of Humalog plus one thousand mg of Metfornin and very little breakfast.
    So I'm supposed to eat bread, bagels, bacon, fruit sauce and orange juice along with astronomical amounts of insulin?
    Does this doctor suffer from some mental illness?
    My a1c four months ago was 10.1 so he told me to ignore it because it's too "old"
    And he increased my Lantus to 55 units.
    In 1998 before I became insulin dependent type 2 I weighed 155 lbs. Now I weigh 215 with 33 percent body fat. Proof insulin is a fat pill.

    Why did you take 25 IU of humalog with very little breakfast? (you dont say what Breakfast consisted of)
    If I took 25 IU of humalog with very little breakfast Id go low too.
    As far as insulin being a fat pill.. Insulin moves your High BG into your cells. If you eat lots of things that raise BG you then need to put that BG someplace. and you do that with insulin, it puts it into your cells.
    Yes your MD suffers from I was told illness. He was told you NEED to eat carbs, there fore you need lots of insulin there fore you gain weight.

Unfortunately true. not sure how to lose weight when injecting huge amounts of insulin. I think if you cut calories the body will eat the remaining muscle and leave the fat.
    I know that increasing insulin beyond 70 or so units per day will cause extreme weight gain in my case. I gained weight every year on insulin for the first 15 years.
    I think the only possible way to lose the existing body fat is to go ketogenic.
    This is not obvious how because insulin inhibits lipolysis
