I had been trying the whole Berardi Theory about separating carbs and fat. If I understood it right, this was to have controlled insulin releases with the carb meals and the fat meals would help improve insulin sensitivity. After reading more I found out that ANYTHING you eat will cause an insulin release.
So I guess my question is, besides preworkout carbs, is there a reason to try controlling insulin releases?[/quote]
You can not control insulin. Its going to rise when you eat food (or look at it apparently). You plan your meals and workouts to take advantage of the biggest insulin spikes. [/quote]
This is not true to say you can not control insulin. You can control insulin. When different things are ingested the insulin responses are absolutely different in amount and timing. we can use this knowledge to our advantage. higher insulin triggers other hormones and = more anabolism and tissue (including fat and muscle) building. Lower insulin also triggers hormones (glucagon) and basically = more catabolism as far as i understand.
You did see the last sentence of my post, right? Thanks for explaining it.
Yes, it was wrong to say you cant control insulin. I shouldnt have said it so simplistically.
