Dr. Art De Vany said in Chris Shugart’s article, Evolutionary Fitness, "Many meals per day reduce insulin spikes a bit, but by substituting a nearly constant flow. Hence, total insulin is increased over the course of the day eating six or seven meals. This will make you more resistant to the action of insulin. Hence, your body must make more of it.
As your insulin drifts upward and you become resistant, you’re on your way to the Metabolic Syndrome X: abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, and a pre-diabetic state. No wonder a number of bodybuilders develop diabetes."
However, a lot of other fitness experts such as Clarence bass and fitness books such as the NSCA’s Essentials of Personal Training seem to say that small but frequent meals stabilize blood glucose and improves insulin resistance. What is one supposed to do?
