Started The 8-Week Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge and learning experience so will concentrate on this area a lot the next two months - Hoping to continue to do well with limiting carbs and weight loss to start happening.

Reminder: Foods working to increase:
Walnuts /almonds/flax
Oatmeal
Swiss chard
Sterols/ stanols
Research: Eating sterol and stanol-containing foods is an easy way to lower your LDL cholesterol, which helps reduce the risk of heart disease. Wheat germ, wheat bran, peanuts, vegetable oils (corn, sesame, canola and olive oil), almonds and Brussels sprouts contain plant stanols and sterols.† Smaller amounts are found in other vegetables and some fruits.† Because itís hard to get enough plant sterols/stanols from foods, food companies have begun to add plant sterols or stanols to some of their food products, such as vegetable oil spreads, mayonnaise, yogurt, milk, orange juice, cereals and snack bars.
Plant sterols and stanols are also available as a supplement; talk to your healthcare provider before taking a phystosterol supplement.†
***My Research reactions: I am celiac so no wheat and several other items here I don't /won't eat due to inflammation markers... but does encourage the peanut butter, olive oil, Brussel sprouts already in my menus...keep searching and learning!

I read an article on this again today - also called Metabolic Syndrome-
Working on the areas they discussed: Cutting sugar and carbs; careful with salt; Decrease saturated fats and processed foods that often have trans fats too.
I m doing fairly well with food choices but could increase personal intake of walnuts, almonds, Oatmeal, swiss chard, Flax and sterol or stanols. Will think on these things!!!

Insulin resistance is a condition in which the cells of the body become resistant to the hormone insulin. Insulin resistance may be part of the metabolic syndrome, and it has been associated with higher risk of developing heart disease.
Insulin resistance precedes the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D).
Insulin resistance is associated with other medical conditions, including fatty liver, arteriosclerosis, acanthosis nigricans, skin tags, and reproductive abnormalities in women.
Individuals are more likely to have insulin resistance if they have any of several associated medical conditions. They also are more likely to be insulin resistant if obese or of Latino, African-American, Native American, or Asian-American heritage.
