Carb Problem? Insulin Problem?


I have a question for some experienced nutrition gurus
every morning I eat a cup of oatmeal with a scoop of protien powder and then about 30 min to an hour later I am
so tired I have to sleep now I also notice this with other meals that have a lot of carbs weather its low glycemic or high glycemic carbs dosent matter if I eat mostly protien then I dont get the same reaction.
Is this from an insulin rush or is it the opposite.


Your pancreas might be secreting too much insulin, causing you to have hypoglycemic moments. You might want to try alpha lipoic acid or the anabolic diet.


thanks for the insight I looked up ala and it sure seems to fit the bill thanks again
