Insulin resistance occurs when you become desensitized to the hormone insulin, resulting in high-glucose levels, elevated triglycerides, weight gain and possibly high-blood pressure and cholesterol.
Insulin resistance increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Fortunately, weight loss and dietary changes can often reverse insulin resistance and prevent serious health complications. Using Manna Blood Sugar Support tablets to lose weight and stabilize glucose and insulin levels can help.
Glucose and insulin
Foods you eat, especially carbohydrates, are converted into your body’s preferred source of energy – glucose. Glucose circulates in your bloodstream until the hormone insulin, produced by your pancreas, is released to transport glucose into your cells for use.
When you eat a diet high in simple carbs – sugar and starches – glucose levels rise very quickly. This fast flood of blood sugar causes your pancreas to release too much insulin, resulting in low-blood sugar. This negative cycle of high- and low-blood sugar can cause overeating – leading to weight gain — and insulin resistance as your cells lose sensitivity to insulin.
Weight loss, glucose and insulin resistance
Excess body fat interferes with how well your body can use insulin. Losing weight is one of the best ways to sensitize your cells to insulin again. The Manna Weight Loss program in the FREE e-book is a healthy lifestyle program which can put you on the right track towards your goal weight without you getting hungry..
By eating small frequent meals every four hours and taking the Manna Blood Sugar Support supplement 3 times per day with your main meals, you supply yourself with a slow and steady stream of energy, and your pancreas does not overproduce insulin. This helps to keep glucose levels stable. Keeping blood sugar levels stable also helps you avoid hunger and makes it easier to avoid the “wrong” food, helping you to lose weight without dieting.
The big secret behind 5 to 6 small meals per day, is to keep your metabolism functioning optimally.
The fewer calories you eat, the faster you’ll lose weight – but only up to a certain point. If you don’t eat enough calories, your metabolism will slow down to conserve energy. This will hinder weight loss.
Losing 15 percent of your body weight can significantly lower insulin levels and improve insulin sensitivity.
The Manna Low GI Shakes are excellent meal replacements, because it helps to keep blood sugar under control and also assist in craving control. Replace 1 to 2 meals per day with the Manna Low GI Shake for healthy weight loss.
