💪 6 Clinically Proven Ways To Improve Insulin Sensitivity To Build Muscle & Lose Fat
Over the years, I’ve noticed that people, especially the athletes I’ve coached, those who have the best insulin sensitivity, are able to
Eat more food, especially carbohydrates – without getting fat
Build more muscle
Lose more fat or stay leaner, especially around the belly
And one common factor that all these people have is really good insulin sensitivity, which is what I want to talk about today.
I personally believe managing your blood sugar levels and improving insulin sensitivity, it one of the most important things you can do to live a healthier and longer life – at the same time, look and feel younger.
And because of this, I have a couple important links I want to share with at the end of today’s video. So make sure you watch till the end…
What’s Insulin Sensitivity
So, what does insulin sensitivity mean?
Basically, when you eat carbs and proteins, especially carbohydrates such as sugars, rice, pasta, breads, fruit and so forth, your body’s blood sugar will naturally go up.
Now, some foods, which have higher glycemic index and load, will cause higher blood sugar levels – such as sugar or corn flakes, for example.
Anyway, as your blood sugar goes up, your pancreas will release insulin, to help lower the blood sugar back to normal levels.
1 – Better Sleep
Getting better, deeper sleep is one of the best things you can do for your health, for optimizing your hormones and improving insulin sensitivity.1-3
2 – Lose Fat & Gain Muscle
The less fat you have, especially belly fat, the higher your insulin sensitivity. Additionally, the more muscle you have, the higher your insulin sensitivity.4-6
3 – Eat Better
Eating better is a major part of improving insulin sensitivity. Again, I’ll dig deeper about this in a future video, but here are some things to consider 7-11
4 – Exercise More
Exercise increases insulin sensitivity. In fact, my diabetic athletes require less injectable insulin on days they exercise.
When you exercise, the sugar moves into the muscles for storage and promotes an immediate increase in insulin sensitivity, which lasts 2–48 hours, depending on the exercise.12-13
My suggestion is to combine both aerobic and anaerobic exercise. So, 3x weekly lift weights or do resistance exercises for your muscles. This could be Mon, Wed and Fri.
5 – Reduce Stress
Stress is one of the worst things for your body, especially insulin sensitivity. This is why sleep is so important, because it helps reduce so many of your stress hormones.
Stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline cause insulin resistance. This is also why stress causes more belly fat. Stress also lowers testosterone and other youth hormones.14-15
6 – Take Supplements
There are a few, clinically proven supplements that will quickly help improve insulin sensitivity, lower blood sugar levels and help you build more muscle and lose belly fat.
