Dr. Waad Amin, a clinical nutritionist, recommended that insulin resistance be tested from time to time, because some people may have it without their knowledge.
Amin explained that belly fat is one of the warning signs that indicate insulin resistance, especially if the rumen appears suddenly, regardless of whether the body weight is normal or overweight.
The nutritionist stressed that not losing weight – despite reducing calories – is not related to a decrease in the body’s metabolic rate, but is usually the result of insulin resistance.
The only way to reduce the risk of developing insulin resistance, she added, is to stay away from processed foods altogether.
