Just from reading various resources and opinions on tweaking diet, and looking at macronutrient intake, I have in the last couple of weeks come across the opinion from a few authors to avoid fat with large carbohydrate meals - the reason being carbohydrates when broken down in glucose in the body will drive up insulin.
While the insulin spike will drive glucose into the muscles which is desirable, the insulin spike will also promote the storage of dietary fat which will be stored as fat in adipose tissues. I read a somewhat differing opinion which also advises against dietary fat post workout but the reason offered is that taking fat post workout curbs the insulin response, thus preventing the desired insulin spike.
Also, as a damage limitation exercise when drinking alcohol, have you found any benefit in avoiding dietary fat the day of a planned drinking session? The reason supposedly being that alcohol curbs fat metabolism due to it’s detoxification being “prioritised” by the liver - therefore if you eat fat while drinking, it gets stored directly as fat rather than being metabolised or used as energy.
Just wondering if anyone has experiences on whether or not the intake of fat in these situations is significant. Thanks
