I’ve been doing alot of reading and these are my notes:
P + C - will also create a high insulin response. The difference is that protein will be absorbed instead of a lot of fat, so this is good. This combo needs to be the first 3 meals in the day so the insulin levels are spikes instead of being consistently high all day. The #1 time for this high insulin wave is right after the workout.
P + F ?? healthy fats are essential. This helps burn fat. The lack of insulin (which comes from P + C) allows the body to go into lipolysis (fat burning mode). This should be a meal 2 hours before training to provide the calories needed.
My question is where is the protein going during the P+F meals since the insulin levels are low? Low insulin, less muscle intake right? Also, if you are wanting insulin spikes while consuming protein, why should i stick with low GI carbs in my P+C meals?
To me that would mean that the insulin wave wouldn’t be as great so not as much protein would enter the muscle. Am I missing something? Dont get me wrong, I’m am NOT saying i should eat high GI carbs all day because that would make me insulin resistant. I am stricly referring to the P+C meals.
