Our expert says:
Because you have insulin resistance, I would recommend that you consult a clinical dietitian. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to email@example.com or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will work out a balanced diet that is low in fat and includes foods with a low glycaemic index (GI). Diet is one of the most important factors in the treatment of insulin resistance, so it is essential that you obtain the correct diet for your condition, certainly not the Atkins Diet, which is loaded with fat, saturated fat and cholesterol. In the meanwhile, click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for an example of a low-fat diet. Also read the articles on the glycaemic index (GI) and click on ‘Food as Medicine' on the Diet Site and then on ‘Type 2 diabetes' (which is similar to insulin resistance) to obtain more information.
