The main reasoning behind any low fat approach is to keep insulin levels low enough to promote fat loss.
Yes, true that when someone resumes dieting insulin goes back low however provoking insulin release via eating too much of that something will hinder fat loss.
Insulin forces fat cells to take in blood lipids which are converted to triglycerides and lack of insulin is usefull becaouse it causes the reverse process, it also leads to decreased lipolysis ? forces reduction in conversion of fat cell lipid stores into blood fatty acids and therefor lack of insulin causes the reverse.
It is not about removing but replacing with other protein sources.
Still there is a cortizol concern, and some authors like Poliquin noted the significance of protein source rotation in order to avoid allergy to certain food.
Serious question: do you proofread your posts before you submit them? because that made absolutly no sense to me whatsoever.
First off, I’m going to assume you mea the reasoning behind any low CARB approach is to keep insulin levels low to promote fat loss.
But let me ask you this…did you know that fat can be stored even in the COMPLETE ABSENCE of insulin? it’s true. Eating a high fat, hypercaloric diet WILL make you fat, even with zero carbs.
Secondly, protein (no matter the source) is insulinogenic, but a high protein diet is great for sparing muscle on low calories.
Q: “but if protein stimulates the release of insulin, won’t it make me fat?”
A: NO, because no matter what, you cannot gain fat on a hypocaloric diet. Any time calories are reduced below maintenance, insulin will be lower, and fat will be mobilized and burned off.
And regarding the cortisol thing, Poliquin is dead wrong, cortisol is not implicated in subcutaneous fat storage (visceral fat, on the other hand, is).[/quote]
Blah, these are all well known facts, apart cortisol and visceral fat relation (probably true due to anti-inflamatory properties).
I have read it after it was published and it came to my mind recently. Also some bodybuilding competitors from my country claimed the same as the author. So did Poliquin in his “Principles”, so did CT…
Ultimately it all comes to allergies to certain types of proteins.
