    At my whole foods, the sign says 100% grass fed beef...

    Probably differs from store to store. At mine the beef is grass fed and then the last 2 months the cows are fattened on vegetarian grains. At least that is what the WF butcher told me.

    The source of your IR is post-prandial, as is typical among women. Your BG stays elevated too long. My experience among ketogenic or VLC dieters who experience declining BG control is that their diet is way too acidic. If you're just eating meats and very little vegetables, your body's become way too acidic and this affects the functionality of your pancreatic beta cells. Combine this with physiological insulin resistance and you get prediabetes.

    Add some veggies to your diet. You don't have to add safe starches but add broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and collard greens. Steam them if you can. Drink the juice after steaming them.

    Your issue with inflammation is that you haven't optimized your thyroid function yet and there could be other sources causing inflammation: i.e., autoimmunity. Omega 6-3 imbalance is a red herring: it turns around slowly but should not affect your CRP much if you're already low-carbing. You have to look elsewhere and it could be your Hashimoto's, which overlaps with myriad other autoimmune conditions. That would be the avenue to look, not focusing on grass-fed/grass-finished beef. Ask for Anti Nuclear Antibodies.
