Intensive Lifestyle Changes Are Necessary to Improve Insulin Sensitivity
Unfortunately, many of the recommendations given from national organizations are too filled with politics to have a real benefit. We see this supported in this current study. Insulin resistance is a huge risk factor for disease, and we know that this condition is very amenable to lifestyle changes. These include avoidance of refined carbs like the plague, increased whole grains, avoiding saturated fats, increasing fruit and veggie intake and aerobic and resistive exercise. Targeted nutritional supplementation can also be a good tool when used as an adjunct to lifestyle changes.
