Dear Jill
I must say that I have never heard the terms "carbohydrate resistance". Seeing that insulin is required to transport glucose derived from carbohydrates into body cells so that it can be metabolised for energy, I would imagine that these 2 concepts could be related. On the other hand, "carbohydrate resistance" could also refer to an inability to digest carbs, such as wheat and related cereals.
