How Long Did It Take
Mon, 08-20-2012 - 8:33pm

How long did it take you to notice a difference if you suffer from obesity and insulin resistance?  I have severe insulin resistance, a huge stomach and other symptoms.  I'm not diabetic..yet.  I know how insulin having an unhealthy insulin level not only causes weight gain but prevents it.  I also know or have read that this is what's great about the South Beach, because it addresses that problem.

I know there are those that have gone on this diet to lose a few lbs or start a healthy eating lifestyle.  However I'd like to hear from those that have not only had a severe weight problem, but a serious insulin problem.  Please share your experience and how you started out on the diet.  Did you follow a strict menu? What were some of the staples in your diet?

Just wanted to say hi. I don't have the insulin problem, but I know SBD is highly recommended as a way of eating for people who suffer from this. Our board has slowed down a lot; I'm not sure who here can attest to their success in terms of helping with insulin resistance.
