If insulin resistance causes weight gain, then is a high protein, low carbohydrate diet recommended?
No. Weight gain from high-fat diets usually leads to insulin resistance. Insulin resistance leads to other health problems such as coronary artery disease. The scientific recommendation for almost all insulin-resistant individuals, genetic or acquired, is a low-fat diet, moderate amounts of protein, high in complex carbohydrates, and exercise. Insulin resistant individuals gain weight like anyone else when they eat more calories than they burn. Insulin resistance may depress satiety signals, leading one to overeat.
