Just a little refresher here: What is/are the means of amino acids entering the muscle cells in a meal where no carbohydrates are ingested (ie. Massive Eating P+f meal). Am I naive to think that Insulin is not present due to the lack of Carbohydrate? If that’s the case how do the amino acids get uptaken?
Secondly, are there different pathways for amino acids used for energy (out of the bloodstream) versus aminos used for protein synthesis (nirogen retention)?
I’ll get Katch, Katch and McArdle out to clarify, but I thought the T-Men could help.
Thanks in Advance.
