7 Discoveries for Stopping Insulin
Weight Gain and Insulin Resistance

Worried about insulin weight gain? How does insulin work to cause weight gain?

  • Your insulin is the “key” that “unlocks” your cells to be able to use the glucose (sugar) that’s in your blood, to burn as energy or store as fat. 

Insulin resistance means, that your muscle cells, brain cells etc. are less responsive, or "hard of hearing," or “deaf” to the signals insulin gives. But these insulin signals are needed for these cells to turn blood sugar into energy!

So, when insulin signals are being “resisted,” your body will make even more insulin to compensate.

  • This tends to increase your appetite. You will want to eat more to get more energy. With both high insulin and high blood sugar levels, you will either get tired, or fat, or both. 
  • This sets up a vicious cycle. An overload of dietary fat is likely, one of the problems that’s making your cells “hard of hearing,” causing insulin weight gain in the first place. Eventually, a big belly and or obesity and diabetes results.

7 Discoveries to Stop Insulin Weight Gain

You no doubt, already know that it's a good idea to move more, and to eat less!

Sure, a high-fat diet plus inactivity causes insulin resistance, but there’s more to the puzzle of this world-wide epidemic... 

  • For you, there may be more to losing weight! Here’s help for you to lose weight with better insulin sensitivity:

Insulin Weight Gain #1: Get Better Sleep to Lose Weight

Sure, you will be expending more energy if you are staying up and not sleeping. But, researchers say that this also leads to eating much more, less physical activity, gaining weight and to insulin resistance.

Researchers found that disrupted sleep causes problems with metabolism, causing insulin resistance, obesity and diabetes. (Curr Opin Endocrinol Diabetes Obes. 2014 Jun 17.)

  • Get enough sleep to stop insulin weight gain!

Insulin Weight Gain #2: Gut Bacteria out of Whack?

A bigger variety of "good" gut bacteria is found in lean people as compared to obese or over weight people.  Why is that important? It turns out to be true that obese people put weight on more easily!

  • Researchers are saying that “good” gut bacteria help digestion, and yes, that slim people have the advantage, because with better gut bacteria you put less weight on!

If you have taken antibiotics and wiped out the diversity of your gut bacteria, these do NOT tend to replenish themselves naturally.  Why is it important to re-gain good bacteria?

  • Having inadequate gut microbes is associated with obesity and insulin problems – metabolic syndrome. 

Taking the right pro-biotic, researchers say, can help both with obesity and with insulin sensitivity.  

They are working on the fine tuning of exactly what strains to take, and how best to diversify your "good" bacteria, so keep tuned.  (SME J. 2014 Jun 17.)

Insulin Weight Gain #3: Oxidative Stress

Diabetic patients show abnormally high levels of "oxidative stress."

Why is that a problem?

Insulin signaling is suppressed by "oxidative stress," according to researchers.

Insulin receptors don't work as well with high levels of "oxidative stress," meaning insulin resistance or diabetes.

What best to do about high oxidative stress?

  • Eat more fruits and veggies for more antioxidants, and move more!
  • Try our recommended immune supplement shown to increase insulin sensitivity and decrease body fat mass by decreasing oxidative stress.

(Effect of thiol antioxidant on body fat and insulin reactivity.  J Mol Med. 2004 Mar.)

  • Even type 1 diabetics have been able to lower their insulin intake as well as lose weight if they were overweight or obese, with this supplement.

  • Reports from people with diabetes who have gotten off their meds, reversed neuropathy, leg pain, and lowered cholesterol and blood pressure by taking a proven supplement for a high immune system.
  • Natural Sleep Supplements and Natural supplements for Anxiety

Insulin Weight Gain #4: When’s a Calorie Not a Calorie?

When it’s High Fructose Corn Syrup!

  • Researchers found that high fructose corn syrup stimulates fat accumulation independent of excessive caloric intake!

This means that it is WORSE than other sugars. And it increases your chances for getting metabolic syndrome, which includes high blood pressure and insulin resistance. (Diabetes. 2013 Oct;62(10):3307-15.)

  • Fructose causes fatty liver, obesity and insulin resistance, say researchers, and others warn against it because it causes serious kidney problems.  (Obes Res Clin Pract. 2013 Mar-Apr;7)
  • Obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure are all related to eating high fructose corn syrup! (PLoS One. 2013 Sep 10)

You may not think you eat a lot of high fructose corn syrup, because it is hidden in most processed foods, cakes, pastries, cookies, cereals etc .  

  • So read the labels, to make sure you are not unknowingly messing up your metabolism, blood pressure and insulin sensitivity, leading you to obesity and diabetes. 

Insulin Weight Gain #5: How Toxins Stop Weight Loss

Here's how the TOXINS that are built up in your organs cause problems:  

  • Higher than usual levels of Lead, Cadmium Cd, Arsenics and Nickel have all been found in diabetics. These heavy metals cause disturbances in cell and organ function.
  • Toxins that mimic our own hormone estrogen are thought to be a special “culprit” in keeping fat on.

These estrogen-like toxins include the BPA in water and baby bottles, so get BPA-free containers. Best to use glass containeres, because the plastics industry is very clever, and they can substitute the next untested toxin and claim it to be safe.

We live in an ocean of preservatives such as nitrates, and toxins like fire retardants. These are now thought to affect us at very low concentrations.  

Insulin resistance, obesity and “diabetes of the brain,” or Alzheimers Disease, is now being linked to the continuous use of low levels of the nitrates that are the preservatives in our meat and deli products:

  • “We have reasonable evidence that human exposure to nitrosamines is at the root cause of not only Alzheimer’s Disease, but several other insulin-resistance diseases, including Type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, and obesity.”   

Says Dr. Suzanne DeLaMonte a Neuropathologist at Alpert Medical School, Brown University, USA.

Insulin Weight Gain #6: Mineral Deficiencies

People who are insulin resistant have been found to have the following vitamin and mineral deficiencies:   Zinc, Chromium, Manganese, and Magnesium.

These minerals play an important part in the production of insulin and how the body uses and stores energy.

  • For instance, experiments have shown that supplementing with Magnesium prevents insulin resistance and reduces the development of diabetes in laboratory studies with animals. 
  • Zinc is needed for the activity of many essential enzymes, and Chromium plays a role in regulating blood sugar.
  • Typically, a Vitamin D deficiency is also found in people with insulin resistance.

Insulin Weight Gain #7: Inflammation

Inflammatory conditions are part of cells becoming unresponsive to insulin, gaining weight and getting diabetes. 

Scientists are finding that low-grade inflammation plays a part causing most diseases, including obesity, heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes.

  • Eating fewer calories and moving more, will certainly cut down inflammation!

This will in turn, help you lose weight easier.  A diet high in saturated fats and high fructose corn syrup particularly increases inflammation.  So learn how to cook, use good oils and omegas, stop the instant stuff, and enjoy moving.

  • Sitting too long at a stretch especially causes insulin resistance. Better to get up and move for at least 10 minutes after every meal, than to the gym once or twice a week.
  • Genetics do play a part, but there’s a lot you can do to “turn off” and change diabetes genes.

Weight gain, insulin problems and high blood pressure all go together, so the good news is that what helps one, will help the other.  

There are many supplements and foods to help you decrease inflammation and get started in the right direction.

  • You may want to start with adding omega oils with CoQ10, turmeric, which have all been shown to help decrease belly fat and improve insulin sensitivity.
