In brief: Calorie restricted

The key to Insulin resistance is to attain (or maintain) a lean body habitus.
There is no special diet for people with Insulin resistance but they should restrict calories such that they are able to get down to an ideal weight. For most people that means modifying the starches in the diet (bread, rice, potatoes and pasta) since for most of us that is where the most calories in our diet reside.
