Chances are the more stressed you are the more you crave sugar. The more sugar you consume the harder it is for your body to metabolize it for fuel, so it’s stored as fat instead. Insulin resistance occurs when your pancreas releases insulin to counter blood sugar spikes but your cells do not uptake the sugar for fuel or when your liver signals release of glucose from muscle cells despite already elevated blood sugar. Condiments, breads, crackers, chips, cereals, frozen dinners and sauces all contain added sugars. Added sugars contribute to blood sugar spikes and promote fat storage. The stressors of daily life combined with increased consumption of convenience foods is creating an epidemic of pre-diabetes and diabetes world wide. In this episode Dr. Jannine Krause breaks down how to reverse insulin resistance.

What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:

  • How hard it is to limit sugar intake
  • Why added sugars are slowly causing insulin resistance
  • How a lack of dopamine fuels sugar cravings
  • Why processed sweeteners and flours are dangerous
