Insulin resistance and pre-diabetes is on the increase, and these conditions are predominantly down to choices we subconsciously or consciously make. Life can be stressful, and our increasing stress levels can determine the decisions we make about how we treat our bodies. Often insulin resistance manifests because people eat as a response to stress, so identifying what your triggers are, will help you to moderate and manage your response to those FFS moments. Reducing your stress is key because we don’t need food to increase our cortisol or blood sugar levels - your stressed body will do that for you, getting you ready to deal with whatever curve ball is being thrown.
When we respond to life with sugar, inflammation sores, blood vessels change, impacting the efficacy of our organs and blood flow, meaning nutrients just cannot get to where they want to go. Therefore, taking control of what and how we eat is critical, not only for how our bodies look, but how they thrive.
