Book Description

1 Jan 2008

Conquer insulin resistance. Reduce cravings. Eat your favorite foods. And lose weight!

If you have tried every diet and are still struggling with your weight, the real culprit may be insulin resistance. When you have more glucose than your body needs, your body responds by producing more insulin to stabilize your blood sugar level and store the excess glucose as fat. In The Insulin-Resistance Diet, Cheryle R. Hart and Mary Kay Grossman show you how to control insulin resistance and lose weight without sacrificing all of your favorite foods.

Overcome insulin resistance and lose weight with:

  • The exclusive Link-and-Balance Eating Method, which balances carbs with the right amount of protein at the right time for maximum weight loss
  • Self-tests to determine your insulin resistance and check your progress with linking and balancing
  • Real-world strategies for eating at home and out on the town
  • Easy-to-make, tasty recipes and livable meal plans

5.0 out of 5 stars A 15+ Year Wait For An Answer - Here It Is 1 Dec 2009
For over 15 years I have struggled with my weight despite leading a very active lifestyle - my boyfriend and I go the gym 6 times a week and have activity based hobbies. We ate what most people consider a "low fat" diet and carefully read labels. He is a triathlete but managed to put on 10kg over 3 years.

We were stumped. We took on personal trainers and nutritionalists. We did the "little but often" diet, we increased fruit and vegetables... everything that the experts said. But nothing shifted. Our experts thought we must be 'cheating' or secretly eating things not on their programs. Believe me, we followed every scrap of advice.

In September, after a year of effort and only a 2kg weight loss, I decided to see a doctor because there had to be something wrong hormonally. I thought it was perhaps my thyroid.

The doctor did a Glucose Tolerence Test (takes about 3 hrs after a 12 hr fast) and discovered that my body was over-producing insulin. In fact, everything I was eating or drinking was being turned into fat and not feeding my muscles at all. My body was in a fat-making cycle that only medication and special diet can fix.

I'm now on drugs to help my cells accept glucose but, more importantly, I follow this diet. And so does my boyfriend who is not insulin resistant or on the medication. Unlike any other 'diet' - we don't feel 'hungry' all the time because my blood sugar levels are stable. Nor do we get any cravings. We allow ourselves one day per month off the program to indulge in a piece of cake or whatever takes our fancy... but we are actually allowed this on the program anyway because you can eat pretty much anything you want within reason.

After 10 weeks on this diet, I have lost over 10kg and he has lost 9kg.

5.0 out of 5 stars great information 20 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed reading this book and have gained a lot of information, especially on ratio's of protein and carbohydrates in meals. It also helped me understand why I crave 'sweet' foods most of the time and how to avoid or help eliminate the feeling. Well worth a read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well Written and Interesting Concept 12 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Whether the insulin resistant diet really works, I'm not sure - I'm not a scientist! However, this book certainly made me think more about the balance of food groups on my plate. It is clear that - for lots of people - reducing carbohydrate load in the diet enables weightloss, but whether the addition of protein successfully balances the carbs that we do consume is not clear. I would say that this book will help you to start a new lifestyle - it is not a faddy eating plan that is only manageable for a week or two - and I think that it will be helpful even for those not diagnosed with insulin resistance. I've discovered that I have more sustained energy, since following this lifestyle plan for a few weeks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting 24 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very interesting book and has given me a better understanding of how my body deals with the food that I eat. I have gained a lot of weight since having breast cancer treatment and I believe that this type of eating plan would be truly beneficial to me.
I look forward to putting the plan into action.

5.0 out of 5 stars eating for life 1 July 2011
By Lisa
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is simple, and as one of the other reviews points out could be a lot shorter and still have the main communication messages.

It's not a diet its a process to eat by. Loved that nothing is out of bounds and that the core concept is easy to pick up and follow. if you don't over do quantities, you rarely have to measure much ie one spoon of this and two spoons of that.

Did I loose weight, yes considerable amounts but then I am highly motivated and work out a fair bit. More so it stropped me triggering metformin so it has the result of teaching you how to eat.

Loved the simplicity and having read at least 4 cookier books, this is the one I most strongly recommend as non fad and that it actually works without being draconian (which the cookier books all are). more importantly I do beleive it's more balanced approach.

5.0 out of 5 stars the insulin-resistance Diet 30 Aug 2009
Quite a revelation. Now I understand where and how all the fat comes from. A nice mixture of proteins and carbs can work wonders, without the usual deprivation.
Also the importance of calcium through the dairy products which were originally forbidden to me, as well as the eggs.
It will take a few months for me to juge the results. However I am feeling much more better already by following all the pieces of advise given.Very revolutionary approach on the diet!!subject.
