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]
Seperating carbs and fats has less to do with insulin, and more to do with calorie restriction. Think about it, if you only consume two out of three macronutrients you are not going ingest as many calories.
Even if you increase the quantities of the other two macronutrients to make up for the absence of one, you are going to come up with decreased calories over the long term
