One of the main objectives in diabetes is how to reverse insulin resistance. It has been found that you can reverse insulin resistance through diet and other means. In an article titled Diet to Prevent and Reverse Insulin Resistance and Type 2 Diabetes James J. Kennedy, PhD, RD, LD, FACN states that the key is to identify the “patients who have a genetic propensity to develop insulin resistance (IR).”

The article goes on to explain why a modern diet coupled with a sedentary lifestyle promotes IR and ultimately type-2 diabetes. Diets of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, non-fat dairy products, seafood have a low energy density (ED) can decrease insulin resistance. Furthermore, a diet that is high in fiber and low in ED is closer to what “our ancient ancestors consumed and what the human body is biologically designed to handle” Kennedy states.
