No. Carbohydrate rich diets actually promote insulin sensitivity and insulin secretion. Chronic high fat diets reduce insulin sensitivity (this is a byproduct of fatty acid metabolism) and reduce insulin secretion.
Overfeeding of any macronutrient, resulting in the accumulation of adipose tissue, will generally promote insulin resistance if sustained chronically.
