Defeat your Insulin Resistance and change your life with an easy-to-follow plan and 75 recipes for a healthier you.

It's proven that a healthy lifestyle can dramatically reduce your chances of diabetes, heart disease, and other illnesses. But where should you start? Americans are slowly becoming ill from impaired glucose metabolism that manifests itself as a debilitating illness or chronic condition. You may try to manage one problem after another– diuretics to treat blood pressure, statins to lower cholesterol, metformin and insulin to treat diabetes--without fully realizing that the root of these issues is insulin resistance which revs up inflammation, damages the immune system, and disrupts the whole hormonal/chemical system in the body.

It's time to feel better and get healthy by following a simple step-by-step plan to a healthy lifestyle. Rob Thompson, MD and Dana Carpender create the ultimate dream team in your journey to wellness.

The Insulin Resistance Solution offers a step-by-step plan and 75 recipes for reversing even the most stubborn insulin resistance.

The Program:

- Reduce Your Body's Demand for Insulin: This is the stumbling block of many other plans/doctor recommendations. Even "healthy" and "moderate" carb intake can continue to fuel insulin resistance.

- Fat is Not the Enemy: Stop Worrying about Fat, Cholesterol, and Salt

- Exercise--the RIGHT way:

- Use Carb Blockers: Eat and Supplement to Slow Glucose Digestion and Lower Insulin Levels

- Safe, Effective Medication

"The number of Americans who have the condition of insulin resistance now outnumber the people who do not--it is a rampant modern health issue responsible for weight gain, diabetes, premature aging and other common health problems. Dr. Thompson unravels the science and rationale for why this silent epidemic has occurred, while Dana Carpender provides her signature wit, charm, and clever low-carb recipe-spinning to provide practical solutions for undoing this condition." - William Davis, MD, Author of #1 New York Times Bestseller Wheat Belly: Lose the wheat, lose the weight and find your path back to health, The Wheat Belly Cookbook, and Wheat Belly 30-Minute (or Less!)
