"Until recently the medical community had not been able to measure how many people suffer insulin resistance -- there was simply no good test," Grossman says.
"However recent research studies show that over a period of eight years, 80 percent of the test population developed insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.
"The number is way more than we ever imagined. We used to guesstimate insulin resistance affected 30 percent of the population."
When your body is operating at peak capability you clear carbs from your system within 2-3 hours of eating. The carbs are either used as energy or stored as fat.
Grossman says Type 2 diabetes sufferers can often find relief with her insulin resistance diet. But if you're taking insulin to control your diabetes, then you are advised to steer clear.
