Insulin Resistance: Why is it so important for weight loss and blood sugars.
There is a lot of talk about insulin resistance…I am sure a lot of you are confused about what it really means and how it relates to your own issues with high blood sugars, excess weight (especially midriff weight) and hormone balance.
It is almost unbelievable that “modern medicine” has not been able to really connect the dots between the presence of insulin resistance and the consumption of sugar and carbohydrates, especially refined, processed ones.
In this enlightening interview with Dr Jason Fung, author of “The Obesity Code” and a true expert on the subject, we finally get some clarity on the real causes and effects of insulin resistance, and even better we get some concrete ideas on how to tackle the problem!

Dr Jason Fung’s Bio
I grew up in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I went to the University of Toronto at age 17 to begin studies in Biochemistry. By 23, I completed medical school at the U of T, and began my Internal Medicine residency there.
Finishing my specialty of Internal Medicine, I chose Nephrology (kidney disease) as my sub-specialty.
I returned to Toronto in 2001 to start my career in Nephrology, where I still have both an office and hospital practice. Type 2 diabetes is by far and away the leading cause of kidney disease, and I treat many hundreds of patients with this disease. Many also have obesity. By the early 2010s my interest in nutrition, combined with my professional focus on obesity and T2D had led me directly to the diabesity puzzle.
