Health | Insulin Resistance and Jerky

Interesting information below about insulin resistance and jerky by Dr. David P. Bowman from Idaho Falls.

“It may surprise you to see how people who are insulin resistant react to food. Those who don’t have insulin resistance watch them with wonder. They think their appetite is out of control. Why? Because those with insulin resistance don’t think about food like you and me. The out-of-balance chemicals in their bodies and their brains literally force them to think constantly about food. Whenever they get close to food, their natural instinct is to devour it. That’s how powerful insulin is in their body.

The advice from most weight loss systems is to snack on many small, healthy meals throughout the day, but the options for insulin-resistant people are limited. Their “small meals” mean a Cup-o-Noodles, donuts, candy…

Insulin-resistant people need slow-burning, high protein food to slow down the sugar conversion in their body and shut off the hunger chemicals. And they need it a half hour before they are hit with intense cravings or the temptations of a huge meal or party buffet.

The same thing is true for diabetics and people who are hypoglycemic. They all crave the empty sweets and starches. But these are the worst possible snacks for them. Their choices are very limited. Nuts and jerky are about the only convenience foods that provide the slow-burning natural fats and protein that will douse the hunger chemicals inside their brain.

But here’s a caution. Don’t wait until you’re ready to devour the whole carton of ice cream before you reach for a strip of jerky. Schedule the snack. Keep jerky in your car or desk drawer and reach for it when your brain sends its first message of hunger.

Most of us don’t understand how unreasonable our body’s hunger chemicals can be. They make us react in ways other people would never think of doing. This intense hunger must be controlled with habits that protect us from ourselves.
So stock up on a variety of flavors from Jerky Direct as a great weight-management hedge.”
