FFB's and Insulin?

So… I was reading one of Chris’s articles about bulking (he doesn’t suggest it) for FFB’s; he said to get lean first. How lean do you think he meant? Also, it’s been said time and time again that the leaner you are, the more carbs/cheat meals you can have. Does insulin have less of an affect on lean people as opposed to everyone else? And, if so, how lean?

These all depend what has your diet been like prior. how fat are you, what are your ultimate goals??etc etc etc.

I mean if you 6 foot and 170-180 fat just lacking muscle etc then eat lift etc.

Just nailing a solid diet over TIME can aid in insulin sensitivity as does training over TIME.

again where are you now, what are your long term goals as opposed to where you sit now.
