If this is answered in an article then please forgive me, but I haven’t found it yet.
I’ve learned so much from this group about P+C+F, but would love to understand the linkage between carbs and anabolism. Spiking insulin post workout for shuttling I can understand, but what is it’s role at other times? Is it simply that being the preferred energy source, it stops your body from using protein for energy and goes to building instead? I’ve learned first hand that I can’t bulk on low carbs, but understanding this might help stop the self sabotage in believing that “high carbs=get fat”.
