#197 Improving metabolic health and insulin resistance

In today’s solo episode and I’ll be talking about insulin resistance, how this impacts your risk of disease and why insulin resistance could drive many chronic conditions and why certain lifestyle measures work for improving metabolic health.

By the end of the episode you will understand:

The relationship between IR and disease

The importance of sugar balance in the body

What insulin is and how insulin works

What happens when we become resistant to insulin

What are the causes of IR

What we can do to become more insulin sensitive and ultimately prevent disease
