I used to go overseas every year for a month at a time and drink copious amount of beer and any other kind of alcoholic beverage I could get my hands on. By the time the month was up my belly got huge yet my friends (who drank heavy also) hadn't put on much weight at all.Therefore I assume that it is safe to say that I am insulin resistant. I have also been a heavy drinker for the past 6 yrs and recently traded the booze for a gym membership and have lost most of my belly.
If I am insulin resistant do I need to take a specific approach to carb intake? Do I need more or less carbs to promote max protein synthesis?
