Don’t rush to conclusions too quickly…
A high carb drink common for many weightlifters might be anywhere from 50 to 150 grams of carbs from dextrose, maltodextrin, gatorade and/or Surge in a 1 to two hour period.
If you work out 4-5 times a week, that is a lot of insulin inducing carbs. Although not quite your Big MAC, French Fries, and Large Coke, the insulin response is similar. Eventually, your body theoretically will become resistant to huge insulin spike and you will need more and more carbs to get an insulin boost.
This is Type II Diabetes. Although body fat % may be low and you are generally healthy, are we exposing ourselves to becoming Diabetic with the amount and frequency of insulin spikes?
Thanks for the responses.
