If you paid for the DNAlysis and are following their diet, then I would suggest that you contact them again and ask what they recommend (Google them to obtain their contact details). Please also mention that you have discovered that you are insulin resistant. The standard treatment of insulin resistance is to use a low-fat, low-glycaemic index (GI) diet which still contains low-GI carbohydrates. In addition, individuals who do body building and intense exercise generally do need some carbs to provide the fuel they require. Consequently, I am puzzled that you are using a no starch, no sugar diet when you train so hard. The DNAlysis service does supply follow-up advice, so please check with them about your plateau and how they suggest you stimulate your metabolism at this stage. As an alternative, you could consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), to evaluate your present diet and provide you with an individual diet prescription that takes your insulin resistance and intense training programme into account.
