    I am learning that folks
    with insulin resistance show
    fatty livers. insulin resistance does not always mean youareeating bad things. Aplles for example create high levels of insulin (55%) and legumes / beans (121%) By eating low insulin foods that contain their own original fat you can lower your insulin levels which lower your fatty liver/triglycerides…menopause/estrogen replacement also can raise triglycerides levels..
