Insulin Resistance & Menopause | MMP Ep.3 The Metabolism and Menopause Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

Did you know that our ability to control our blood sugars starts to decrease as we go through perimenopause?! Lucky us! Estrogen is responsible for helping out with insulin sensitivity by helping shuttle the sugars in our blood to our muscle cells. When estrogen drops during perimenopause and onwards we see that not only does our insulin resistance go up but with that fat storage increases as well!

Your initial thought might be to cut out carbs, but that is completely unnecessary and can actually be more detrimental—especially if you are high-stress, active, not sleeping enough, and/or have thyroid issues.

In today's episode, I cover how to combat insulin resistance during menopause WITHOUT cutting out carbs!
