The Impact of Obesity on Health
The obesity epidemic is one of today’s most pressing issues; it’s estimated that more than two-thirds of adults in the United States are overweight or obese. With this increasing prevalence of excess weight comes an increased risk for various health complications, including insulin resistance and diabetes. Insulin is a hormone that helps the cells absorb and use glucose. Insulin resistance is when the body does not respond normally to insulin allowing levels of blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglycerides to elevate.
What Causes Insulin Resistance?
Although there is a range of factors that contribute to insulin resistance, experts have identified poor dietary habits as one of the primary drivers. Processed foods, high-glycemic carbohydrates, sugary drinks, mass production of food, and the proliferation of junk food are all major contributors to an unhealthy diet. This type of eating leads to weight gain and higher levels of bad cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar.
What Can I Do About Insulin Resistance?
Fortunately, several strategies can help reduce insulin resistance, improve insulin sensitivity, reduce blood sugar, and help you lose weight, including:
- Adopting a low-carbohydrate or ketogenic diet
- Eating high-quality proteins, healthy fats, and good carbohydrates instead of processed junk food
- Eating more vegetables
- Limiting sugar intake
- Exercising regularly
The key to weight loss is taking charge of your health and making small daily changes.
