Belly Fat, Insulin Resistance, and a Hack to Beat Them Both


Whether you are a man or a woman, the deep fat that builds up in your belly greatly increases your risk of insulin resistance. In fact, when scientists surgically removed 18% of the belly fat in obese mice, their insulin sensitivity improved, and their onset of diabetes was delayed. This is not a video on how to surgically remove belly fat, and we are not mice, but I do have a daily strategy that you can use to fight back against belly fat and insulin resistance. Best of all, you can start doing this today, using – eTRE, Apple Cider Vinegar, and Cheese.

  • Okay…after getting to a plateau with controlling my blood sugar I will get on with this plan. One question, is there a recommended shelf life with the Braggs ACV?

    • same question , I just read if there is sediment then it may be off. I have an opened bottle 3/4 full , down the sink sadly and buy a new one to be sure

  • I like to sip on warm whole milk after 5:00 p.m., to keep me from eating, plus the milk feels to me like a “meal” and also like “dessert”. Does drinking milk this way count as “fasting”?

  • And how long do you continue to do this? Until you’ve lost the belly fat? The rest of your life? Is there a test for insulin resistance?
    Thank you

  • Thanks, Dr. Becky for your always calm, intelligent, science-backed advice. I find drinking ACV with lemon juice so much more palatable. Since I close my IF window at 3 or 3:30 pm, (and I think I’m finally insulin sensitive), I am hesitant to add cheese later in the day, regardless of the low carb content, but will definitely try the ACV close to bedtime.

  • I actually like to sip on ACV water in my bottle through the day, is that bad? Can I have too much? I know it’s not great for teeth. It’s like 2 Tbsp in 24oz water or more

  • Good information,healthy high fat snacks are good, it helps reduce hunger before bedtime and early morning!!! Cheese, heavy cream, high fat yogurt, boiled eggs, avocado are good choices!! You only feel hungry if the meal you had before was low in fat!!! You need to adjust the fat to be able to skip the snacks!!!

  • So did I hear you correctly, is it the acidic acid in ACV that provides this fasting and glucose benefit? I have used a bite of butter at bedtime to help with fasting as fat produces a minimal insulin spike but helps me sleep better on an empty stomach.

  • Isn’t this going to cause us to get up in the night to (ahem) urinate?
    My goal is that 8-9 hrs of ‘uninterrupted’ sleep?
