How to Fix Insulin Resistance!

by Sean Croxton

A couple night’s ago I had Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation, on the radio show.

Listen to the show HERE.

Mark was kind enough to spend 90 minutes with us answering YOUR calls and Facebook/Twitter questions.

One of those questions was about insulin resistance, a very common health issue in a country addicted to sugar and polyunsaturated fats.

The most unfortunate part of our deadly epidemic of insulin resistance is just how easy it is to reverse. The hard part, for most people, is actually DOing it!

Check out the video below, in which Mark gives YOU the nutshell version of how to reverse problems with blood sugar regulation. And remember, insulin is the primary hormone responsible for the storage of fat. When you control insulin and blood sugar you turn ON the fat-burning hormones and enzymes. I write all about this is my new e-book The Dark Side of Fat Loss (DSFL).

By the way, when you leave a comment below you will make yourself eligible for a FREE copy of DSFL. I’ll take all of your names, put them in a hat, and draw three lucky winners. You’ll get DSFL, The Underground Cookbook, AND The Underground Workout Manual. Be sure to enter your email into the form so I’ll know how to contact you. Your email will not be added to any sales lists or anything. I wouldn’t do that to you.

Contest ends TONIGHT at 11:59pm Pacific. I’ll pick a winner on video tomorrow!

Good luck!
