In this video, I’ll cover the best foods you
should eat if you’re someone who has insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a problem many people
face today. And when it comes to insulin resistance, the one thing that gets a little bit tricky
about it is that there are a lot of bad dietary advises out there which makes it very hard
for the average person to know what they’re supposed to do. You know, some dietary advises
thinks that you should eat whole grains, and others are telling you that you need to stay
away from whole grains. So what do you do? That’s why in this video, what we’re going
to do is to focus on the best foods to eat for insulin resistance. We’re going to talk
about a couple of particular foods that are scientifically proven to bring down your insulin
levels and bring down your blood glucose levels but also we’re going to talk about just in
general, foods that you need to consume if you want to start reversing insulin resistance
today. So stick around to the end of this video, but before we get started, I’m Dr.
Zyrowski, and welcome to the channel, if you’re new to this channel, it’s a pleasure to have
you here. Be sure to subscribe, hit that bell notification and join our notification community
that way can help you excel your health and your life. And I also want to mention our
new food plan, meal plan is not available. What you can do is if you want to know more
about joining that, you can click on the link below and learn more about it. Basically,
I just you a mini recipe book, cook book every single month that has all the meals that I’m
going to be consuming, it’s literally my diet plan, every single month. The great news is
that, it is all insulin resistance approved. This is a good quality insulin resistance
diet, not like the one that they fed my grandfather when he was in the hospital giving him lots
of whole grains, sugary yogurts, and different starches and follow up with an insulin shot.
So we’re not doing that, we’re doing the good quality diet plan here. If you want to learn
more about that, click on the link in the description below. Let’s go ahead and get
started here. Now the first thing on our list is going to
be garlic. Garlic is proven in many studies to have an very positive and profound effect
on insulin. It has a great anti-diabetic effects, known for being able to lower fasting blood
glucose and also contains volatile sulfur compounds. And it is well for all really great
for lowering your insulin levels and lowering your blood sugar. Some people are taking garlic
capsules, some people are sprinkling garlic powder on to their food and then others are
just cooking with garlic which is all great. So what we want to do is make sure we increase
our garlic intake if we have something like insulin resistance. It actually is going to
help us reverse it. Next thing is going to be dark chocolate.
Now I shouldn’t have to convince someone to have dark chocolate. Now the thing is that
we’re not talking about a high sugar Hershey’s chocolate bar. We’re talking about like an
organic chocolate bar that is going to be very rich in anti-oxidants but also is going
to be sugar free. So that is very important here. It’s very powerful when we look at how
its going to have an good effect on reversing insulin resistance. A few things to consider,
so first of all, it’s antioxidant rich, it has cocoa polyphenols in it. It also has Pancreatic
Beta cell Regeneration capabilities. And one of the things that happens with insulin resistance
is that pancreas is just pumping out so much insulin for so long that the beta cell just
gets burn out. Well, the antioxidant within the chocolate is going to help regenerate
those beta cells. It’s also going to stimulates insulin secretion, because after that insulin
has been pumping for so many years so hard it starts to decrease and starts to be an
issue. It also is going to have a hypoglycemic effects, it’s going to help bring down that
blood sugar which is incredibly important during this time. And it’s going to improve
glucose tolerance, so these are all great things that are really powerful for anyone
who is interested in reversing the type 2 diabetes or insulin resistance. Dark chocolate
is a great way to go. So like I said, go ahead, incorporate more dark chocolate. It shouldn’t
be anything that I need to convince you to eat more than your daily routine. Next, let’s talk about cinnamon. Cinnamon
is really powerful when it comes to reversing insulin resistance, you know, it was shown
to improve all aspects of metabolic syndrome. So what that basically means, it was able
to actually lower insulin levels, it was able to lower blood glucose levels, it was able
to lower blood lipids. It is a powerful antioxidant which is incredibly important. We’ll talk
more about antioxidants in just a moment here. It also it’s really powerful for reducing
inflammation which is also very important right, because we have insulin resistance,
it is also an inflammatory issue occurring in the body, helps bring down blood pressure
and also helps reduce body weight . So sprinkling cinnamon and your food, sprinkling into your
coffee, sprinkling it into a apple cider vinegar drink which is really great is going to all
be powerful ways at bringing down your blood sugar levels reversing insulin resistance.
I actually did this great video on the apple cider vinegar drink that includes a lot of
cinnamon in it. I’ll put a link in the description below so you can check out that video because
it’s a great, great drink that you should incorporate into your daily routine if you
have insulin resistance. Let’s keep moving here and talk about non-starchy
vegetables, you know. It’s very important to incorporate a lot of non-starchy vegetables
into your diet routine as well. Now we’re not talking about just a little bit at night,
just a little bit at lunch. I’m talking about a lot of it at lunch and a lot of it at night.
We want to make sure that we’re including a lot of good non starchy vegetables. Some
examples are going to be things like beats, artichokes, asparagus, eggplant, spinach,
zucchini, cauliflower. What you can probably do is take a snapshot of the screen right
here. And just realize that these are the good vegetables that you want to incorporate
in daily to your routine in order to reverse insulin resistance. When we look at these
different non-starchy vegetables are very high in phytonutrients, they’re also very
high in minerals and high in vitamins as well. So incorporating these into the daily routine
is really going to do a lot of good things for your overall health in general but also
do a lot of great things for reversing insulin resistance without having all those different
starches and carbs in it to bring up your blood sugar. Let’s go ahead and talk about antioxidants
like I mentioned antioxidants are very important here. Now, couple of things here, when we
look at foods that are very rich in antioxidants, we always look to berries. Okay so berries
are going to be a food that is going to be low glycemic but very high in antioxidants.
We’re going to talk about things like blueberries, strawberries, goji berries, raspberries, blackberries.
These are all good examples of berries that can be included. Now when we have insulin
resistance, you have a very high level of insulin resistance, it’s something that you’ve
been facing for a long time, you’re very sensitive, you’re going to have to be very careful when
incorporating berries in them, okay? You’re going to just incorporate a little bit, now
the thing is, that is important here is that we want to get a lot of these antioxidants
because we want to start reducing oxidative stress, oxidative damage, reversing a lot
of that inflammation. We want to make sure that we’re getting those antioxidant. Berries
are a great source, we just have to go very light with them. We have to be careful that
we’re not doing too many. So start lightly. Now, the other thing too, is you can incorporate
some different vegetables that are going to be high in antioxidants as well. Things like
kale, red cabbage, beets, spinach and artichoke. Those are all high in antioxidants, high in
nutrients, high-end minerals and that’s all going to be very very helpful for reversing
insulin resistant, so incorporate a lot of this into we want to make sure that we go
and get a lot of antioxidants. So for some people they just actually want
to go incorporate a antioxidant drink of some sort, like a powder and what I’ll probably
try to do here for you to go and find one and put it in the link in the description
below where you can just get like a powder like some sort of drink that taste good. Because
I know clinically we do that a lot. To just really boost an antioxidant level in the body.
You know, when we look at this in general, when we look at insulin resistance, it’s not
just about the foods, it’s not just about the nutrients, it’s also about including things
like exercise, okay. So clinically when people come in and they have insulin resistance that’s
what we do we focus on the diet and then we added supplementation in order to really boost
the impact that we are going to have on that individual. We want to see fast results, we
want to see quick results, we don’t want to just change a diet because you know, though
it’s a very important part of this whole thing we want to get results faster. So you know
we add in all the proper foods, we also make sure that we had a lot of high-quality supplementation,
I’ll put a link into the in the description below the supplement that we use but we add
that in and then we added exercise like high intensity interval training and I actually
did a video on high intensity interval training. And how important it is if you have insulin
resistance. You can check that video out right here or in the description below. Now let’s talk about smash fish. Now, smash
fish is important. Smash is an acronym for salmon, mackerel, anchovies, sardines, and
herring. Why these fish in particular? Well, these fish are going to be high and rich in
omega-3 content. So we want to make sure that we’re getting a lot of omega-3 in because
they’re very powerful for reducing inflammation, very powerful for going in reversing oxidative
stress on the body. So adding in these fish are is going to be very helpful during this
process. Now the other reason that these particular
fish are beneficial is because they typically are very low in different toxins like Mercury.
So adding in these smash fish into your weekly food plants that can be very powerful for
reducing insulin resistance and like I said it’s about putting it all together. I put lots of resources in the description
below is this video a thumbs up. If you have any questions, also put that in the comments
