Repetition is a good tool to be able to recall new learning, therefore let us refresh our memory of the strategies to reverse insulin resistance for the past 8 weeks:
- Check your portion.
- Eat more vegetables and fruit.
- Get walking.
- Switch to whole grain.
- Manage your stress.
- Get adequate sleep.
- Don’t forget the snacks.
- Ramp up your exercise.
Yes, we are almost at our final stretch to combat insulin resistance.
Week 9: Change your food behavior
Negative food habits are not always easy to change. Make a conscious effort to correct eating habits that cause you to get off track.
Your goals for week 9
- Slow down when you eat and take the time to enjoy every bite
- Drink plenty of water
Week 10: Put it all together
Monitor your overall progress by looking at how well you have done with various aspects of your plan.
Your goals for week 10
- Make a list of all the things you have been able to achieve, as well as the goals that still need work: Seeing in writing all that you have accomplished is very satisfying and motivates you to keep going
- Congratulate and reward yourself on a job well done!
