Dear Mags
Insulin resistance is a complicated condition that requires an individual diet. I would, therefore, like to recommend that you consult a clinical dietitian (phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings) of the name and address of your nearest dietitian), who will work out a diet that is tailored to this condition and takes all your individual characteristics into account (age, weight, medication, level of physical activity, etc). It really is worthwhile esp if you have a condition that can affect a number of systems (e.g. insulin resistance, raised blood fats, tendency to gain weight, etc).
