In this video, we’re going to talk about the seven warning signs you’re eating too much sugar.

Insulin resistance is a situation where your insulin receptors begin to resist insulin. As insulin resistance progresses, it turns into pre-diabetes and diabetes.

If you can address insulin resistance early, you can help reduce your risk of pre-diabetes and diabetes. However, doctors rarely test for insulin resistance. This test is known as HOMA-IR.

At least 33% of the population has insulin resistance—most don’t know about it.

What causes insulin resistance? It’s caused by high insulin, which is caused by high carb and sugar consumption.

The AMA recommends no more than 6-9 tsp of added sugar daily. However, most adults consume at least 9 tsp of sugar per day. The average teenager consumes around 18.5 tsp of added sugar each day.

All carbohydrates turn into sugar, with the exception of fiber. With that in mind, when you include sugar from carbs, the average person consumes over half a pound of sugar daily.

It’s important to spot these warning signs you’re eating too much sugar, so you can change your diet and minimize your risk of type 2 diabetes.

These are the seven warning signs you’re eating too much sugar:

1. Frequent urination

2. Excess thirst and dry mouth

3. Hunger between meals

4. Blurred vision

5. Irritability

6. Fatigue—even after sleep

7. Genital itching

Healthy Keto and intermittent fasting are the best things you can do to avoid sugar, curb cravings, and minimize your risk of insulin resistance. Check out my other videos to learn more about keto and IF.
