How to Lead a Low Insulin Life

Author: Dr John Stewart, BVSc
Date: September 19, 2022

We're on our theme still of what we have to do no matter what sort of an eater you are, vegan, vegetarian, carnivore, pescatarian, or whatever. What we're aiming for is to lead a low insulin life. Now, we've mentioned in two previous videos,- one that one of our ways of doing this, is to adopt a practice of intermittent fasting, stretching out the amount of time that we don't eat overnight.

We've said in the last video that we are going to restrict calories. Well, the third thing we can do to reduce our insulin production which I think is the easiest is to reduce our carbs now. When we talk about carbs, what does this term mean?

Well, there are three macronutrient classes carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Carbohydrates are fiber starch and sugar. Well, fiber is good. We want that. But, we don't want starch and we don't want sugar. From an ancestral point of view, we were not designed to need, or uh, coexist well with a diet that is high in sugar, and high in starch. So what do I get as kickback for when I suggest to people I've worked with,- a couple of Sri Lankan and a couple of Indian people. And, rice is a core part of their diet, but I explain it to them like this, I say if you are going to eat continue to eat rice and Jasmine rice as an example, jasmine rice has got a glycemic index of 89. Glucose has got a glycemic index of 100.

So, sitting down to a bowl of jasmine rice is a bit like sitting down to a bowl of sugar, and if you're going to do that, you're going to turn on insulin and remember, insulin is the fat storage hormone. It stimulates us to store fat and it stimulates stops us from breaking down fat. So we've really got to get off the bread, rice, pasta and potato.
