Ok, I am a long time lurker, I figure there is little reason for asking questions that have already been answered, but now I have a new one.
Anyway, is it possible to change certain genetic predispositions?
I will explain:
I have insulin resistance, so my body creates too much insulin and whatever calories are in my bloodstream at the time get stored as fat. Right now it is no big deal; I just keep a 30/30/40 Protein/Carb/Fat Ratio regardless of bulking or cutting, I follow common dietary sense (no carbs without something to slow absorption) and I?m fine.
I know this is a genetic problem because my mom has it, and the doc said it is hereditary.
My question is, if I further cut carbs (I have never been able to eat more than 30-35% carbs w/o fat gain) to say 20-25% will my body get used to creating less insulin and thus reduce my predisposition to insulin resistance, or will the resistance just come back as soon as I up the carbs again?
I know it is not a very common problem, but hopefully someone will have some info.
PS. Does anyone know why I can not use apostrophies?
