Insulin Resistance? Balanced Blood Sugar? Why Should You Care? 

Did you know that only 12% of American adults are considered metabolically healthy?  

Building a healthy lifestyle you love is more than just feeling cute in your swimsuit at the beach. When you choose to prioritize your whole health and well-being, you can learn to support your body for decades to come. 

There are 5 markers that make up metabolic health.

  1. Blood sugar
  2. Triglycerides
  3. HDL Cholesterol
  4. Blood Pressure
  5. Waist Circumference

One way to be sure you improve your metabolic health is to sustain normal blood sugar levels. 

If you are on a blood sugar rollercoaster, it’s time to get off. 

The constant highs, crashes, & cravings, alongside the increased risk of insulin resistance, are hard on your body, your motivation, and your mindset, not to mention your fat loss efforts.

What is Insulin Resistance?

Insulin resistance is a condition in which the cells in your body become less responsive to the hormone insulin. Insulin is produced by the pancreas and plays a crucial role in regulating blood sugar levels. It allows glucose (sugar) from the bloodstream to enter the cells, where it is used for energy.

When you have insulin resistance, your cells do not respond properly to insulin, which means that glucose has difficulty entering the cells. As a result, your pancreas produces more insulin to compensate for the resistance and maintain normal blood sugar levels.

And even if you don’t have insulin resistance, there are many benefits to keeping your blood sugar balanced.

  1. Energy and Mood Stability: When blood sugar levels are stable, your body can efficiently convert glucose into energy. This helps prevent energy crashes and mood swings that often occur when blood sugar levels fluctuate too much. Stable blood sugar levels contribute to a more consistent and balanced energy supply throughout the day, promoting improved focus, productivity, and overall mood stability.
  2. Weight Management: Balancing blood sugar levels is beneficial for weight management. Blood sugar spikes and crashes can trigger hunger and cravings for sugary or high-calorie foods. Keeping blood sugar levels stable can reduce the likelihood of overeating, make healthier food choices, and better manage your weight.
  3. Heart Health: Chronically high blood sugar levels can contribute to the development of cardiovascular diseases. By maintaining stable blood sugar levels, you can reduce the risk of high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, and inflammation, which are all factors associated with heart disease.
  4. Improved Cognitive Function: Stable blood sugar levels are vital for proper brain function. Fluctuations in blood sugar can impact cognitive performance, attention span, and memory. By maintaining balanced blood sugar levels, you can promote optimal brain function and support cognitive health.

Here are some simple ways to help stabilize your blood sugar levels and avoid metabolic damage that leads to insulin resistance:

  • Quick walks after meals
  • No naked carbs (pair with protein and fat)
  • Keep stress levels on the down low
  • Switch off screens at night and get more sleep
  • Focus on protein-heavy & unprocessed whole foods
  • Lift heavy, build muscle

Learning how to eat well and move your body in ways that support your metabolism takes practice. Just like learning any new skill, practice and consistency are the keys to your success. You are in control!
