The good news is that Insulin Resistance CAN be reversed. It only takes a short time IF you eliminate the high carbohydrate intake, and start eating the way your body’s DNA wants you to eat. Our program is designed to use modern day foods to return your metabolism to the way it is designed to work.
The basic philosophy is reflected in the ideas of eating Primal or Paleo. I like to think of it as an Ancestral Diet. You will learn how to eat the nutrients your body needs by eating foods that are as close to those we find in the wild. It avoids all chemically processed foods including most vegetable oils. You will be given a huge list of foods that work in combination with each other to fill you up, taste great and free your body to burn fat.
Since your insulin production will return to optimal levels, your cells will once again be able to respond and take in the energy they need, so you won’t feel hungry. You will start out burning fat, which produces ketones. Ketones are the brain’s optimal energy source, believe it or not. They are not dangerous, though many people, even physicians, worry because they’ve heard of the dangerous condition known as Diabetic Keto-acidosis (DKA). That is entirely different. Those ketones are produced as a result of the acidosis due to the rise in blood sugars. It’s not the ketones that are the problem; it is the acidosis.
