Insulin Sensitivity: Why You Can't Blast That Fat For Good!

Have you ever wondered why, after all the exercise and healthy eating you do, you still can't shift that last bit of fat? You hit the gym four to five times a week or more, you even try to get a run in over the weekend and on top of this you're eating all the healthiest food you can find; despite this your still not super lean like you want to be. I have the answer to your nightmare - Insulin sensitivity. Insulin sensitivity will eventually replace the term "weight loss" and "fat loss" as the new hot topic. Insulin has a powerful ability to prevent fat breakdown by its anabolic (rebuilding) properties. Few health and fitness professionals know or understand Insulin sensitivity (IS) which is why its no wonder that the every day man or woman is finding weight and fat so difficult to lose; it's incredibly hard to win against an obstacle you don't know is there! Let me explain Insulin's role and how it's sensitivity changes depending upon how close you are to your weight and fat loss goals. Insulin Sensitivity You might remember the hormone Insulin from articles referring to muscle gains due to its anabolic properties. Well further research into Insulin action shows that these same ana Continue reading >>

    I'm pretty new to this so I'd love some feedback on how switching to the Keto way of eating affects women. Specifically her hormones and menstruation.

  2. AmandaJones

    My periods have become more "normal." I was on birth control for 16 years, and after I quit taking it, over two years ago now, my periods never went back to normal (pre birth control) until now. Before keto, I still had a lot of spotting before and after my period and that has been greatly reduced. Also, my period is now about three days longer than before. Idk if most would think of that as a good thing, but I have been trying to conceive for the last two years unsuccessfully, so a return to a normal five day period is a step in the right direction, I think, as I'm considering this an increase in the health of my uterine lining.

    I've been keto (mostly) for about a year and a half. In that time I've found that being keto has help with my cycles. I am more regular, have less pms (less fatigue, acne, migraines) and have even had less cramoing.

    ... All good considering I am in my 40s and probably dancing on the edge of perimenopause.

What is INSULIN RESISTANCE? What does INSULIN RESISTANCE mean? INSULIN RESISTANCE meaning - INSULIN RESISTANCE definition - INSULIN RESISTANCE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Insulin resistance (IR) is a pathological condition in which cells fail to respond normally to the hormone insulin. The body produces insulin when glucose starts to be released into the bloodstream from the digestion of carbohydrates in the diet. Normally this insulin response triggers glucose being taken into body cells, to be used for energy, and inhibits the body from using fat for energy. The concentration of glucose in the blood decreases as a result, staying within the normal range even when a large amount of carbohydrates is consumed. When the body produces insulin under conditions of insulin resistance, the cells are resistant to the insulin and are unable to use it as effectively, leading to high blood sugar. Beta cells in the pancreas subsequently increase their production of insulin, further contributing to a high blood insulin level. This often remains undetected and can contribute to a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes or latent autoimmune diabetes of adults. Although this type of chronic insulin resistance is harmful, during acute illness it is actually a well-evolved protective mechanism. Recent investigations have revealed that insulin resistance helps to conserve the brain's glucose supply by preventing muscles from taking up excessive glucose. Insulin resistance should even be strengthened under harsh metabolic conditions such as pregnancy, during which the expanding fetal brain demands more glucose. People who develop type 2 diabetes usually pass through earlier stages of insulin resistance and prediabetes, although those often go undiagnosed. Insulin resistance is a syndrome (a set of signs and symptoms) resulting from reduced insulin action; it is also part of a larger constellation of symptoms called the metabolic syndrome. Insulin resistance may also develop in patients who have recently experienced abdominal or bariatric procedures. This acute form of insulin resistance that may result post-operatively tends to increase over the short-term with sensitivity to insulin typically returning to patients after about five days.

Insulin Resistance

What medical conditions are associated with insulin resistance? While the metabolic syndrome links insulin resistance with abdominal obesity, elevated cholesterol, and high blood pressure; several other medical other conditions are specifically associated with insulin resistance. Insulin resistance may contribute to the following conditions: Type 2 Diabetes: Overt diabetes may be the first sign insulin resistance is present. Insulin resistance can be noted long before type 2 diabetes develops. Individuals reluctant or unable to see a health-care professional often seek medical attention when they have already developed type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. Fatty liver: Fatty liver is strongly associated with insulin resistance. Accumulation of fat in the liver is a manifestation of the disordered control of lipids that occurs with insulin resistance. Fatty liver associated with insulin resistance may be mild or severe. Newer evidence suggests fatty liver may even lead to cirrhosis of the liver and, possibly, liver cancer. Arteriosclerosis: Arteriosclerosis (also known as atherosclerosis) is a process of progressive thickening and hardening of the walls of medium-sized and large a Continue reading >>

    Measuring ketones?

    I have been eating low carb (prob less than 40-50/day ... TC - not net carbs) for about 2 months now. Haven't made a conscious decision to go keto but am curious how close/far I am given this level of eating.
    Seems like the strips are the cheapest way to go - are there particular brands that are better than others, and do results differ significantly the way they do with meters?
    How frequently do you measures (daily, weekly, etc.)

    I've read you need to maintain between 1 and 3 to be in keto - is there any benefit to having some ketones but not at that level? How long does it take you get back once you slip out with a meal or day?
    TIA!

Yes, sticks are dirt cheap but ridden with problems. I don't think that there is much significant difference between brands including generic one. Here are few issues:
    - It may get a little tricky to compare colors to get the accurate reading.
    - Even if you have luck with matching colors, the ranges shown are pretty "approximate".
    - If you are in ketosis for a while (seems like you maybe that case), urine keto strips stop showing the full extent of your ketosis, i.e. readings are low despite the fact that your ketones are up. The issue is that urine strips test only for acetoacetate ketones, and not for more important beta hydroxybutyrate.
    - So, keto urine sticks may not be very useful for what you are trying to do at the moment, but certainly better something than nothing.
    I would recommend using Blood Ketone Meter. For example, Xtra Precision which costs around $25 plus $3-$4/ketone strip. You can find good prices on Amazon.

    Originally Posted by loislane

    Ideal range is 1.5-3.0 mmol. Light nutritional ketosis is 0.5-1.5 mmol. See below.
    Yes, there is some benefit to being in "light" ketosis as opposed into the "full".
    If you slip, on average, it may take 2-4 days to get back to the track.

    The best strips are freestyle blood strips that measure Betahydroxybutyrate. Urine strips measure god only knows what.

Iron overload disorder: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment Hemochromatosis is an iron overload disorder in which a person absorbs too much iron from the food and drink they consume. Left untreated, it can damage various organs in the body. The skin takes on a bronze color. The surplus iron is stored in the liver, heart, pancreas, and other organs. Damage to the pancreas can lead to diabetes. Hereditary hemochromatosis can also lead to cancer and heart disease. Hemochromatosis can be primary, a result of genetic alterations, or secondary, as a result of another disease or condition. Primary hemochromatosis mostly affects white people. In the United States, it affects around 5 white people in every 1,000, and 10 percent of white people carry one of the genes related to the condition. However, many people have the gene mutation but no symptoms. As women regularly lose blood during menstruation, hemochromatosis is less common among females than males. Blood loss reduces iron levels.

What Causes Insulin Resistance? Lipid Overload

Over the past year I have interacted with hundreds of people with diabetes, and have come to learn one very important lesson that has changed my view of diabetes altogether. This realization came to me early on in my career as a nutrition and fitness coach for people with diabetes, and continues to hold true. While insulin resistance is a condition that is most commonly associated with type 2 diabetes, an increasing body of evidence is now shedding light on the fact that insulin resistance is a common thread that underlies many health conditions previously unassociated with blood sugar, including (but not limited to) heart disease, diabetes, atherosclerosis, the metabolic syndrome, obesity and cancer. What that means is simple: insulin resistance significantly increases your risk for the development of a collection of health conditions that can significantly reduce your quality of life and decrease your life expectancy. Watch this video for a synopsis of the causes of insulin resistance: What is insulin and why should you care? Insulin is a hormone which is released by the pancreas in response to rising blood glucose. When you consume carbohydrates, the glucose that enters the bloo Continue reading >>

    @Rookie , You mention your macros and they seem to be in line but, you don't mention how many calories you are eating.
    I used to eat NSNG (no sugar, no grains) and was not losing weight. I called Vinnie Tortortorich for a consultation and he figures out that the fat I was eating was totally feeling my fat fuelled body. My body never needed to go to my fat stores so I wouldn't lose any weight.
    Once I dropped my BPC (I was using to much HC) and started losing.
    Maybe we could get @carl to interview you on the podcast since there are so many people on this post that are in the same boat.
    The other thing I don't think you mentioned (I may have skipped past it) is how much you have to lose. On a good week I can lose 6 pounds. My Wife has lost 11 pounds over 3 months because she has a lot less to lose.
    Just some thoughts.
