Weight Gain is Due to Insulin Resistance

Losing weight is a struggle for many people. Insulin resistance is very prevalent in the United States today. It is the number one reason for weight gain and inability to lose weight. Insulin resistance causes fat to accumulate around the abdomen and leads to obesity, diabetes and heart disease. With the correct testing, supplements and medications, we can balance our hormones and overcome insulin resistance leading to long-term weight loss success.
