same here, I've read it a couple times now just to reinforce some points.
For me that point is insulin sensitivity like Bill mentioned, and making sure I'm not taking anything that may increase insulin resistance, even acutely (such as caffeine anhydrous and the resulting increase in plasma epinephrine).
I've actually been drinking coffee instead because of a few studies (4-8 week timeframe) showing that it can lower leptin (a good thing as higher serum leptin, even though it is a satiety hormone, means leptin resistance). Not only that coffee can increase adiponectin and decrease pro-inflammatory markers such as TNF-a, IL-6, and CRP.
The increase in adiponectin is particularly interesting as I (supposedly) have a genotype of the ADIPOQ gene that results in decreased adiponectin. This is a very important hormone that is overlooked because it can control fat metabolism and insulin sensitivity, and has direct anti-diabetic and anti-inflammatory activities.
Bill, correct me if I'm way off base, lol.
