For those who want to do more research on insulin

Sunday, November 10, 2013

I decided that I needed to do more research on insulin and how it affects the human body. I want to learn more about why some people can handle a lot more carbohydrates than others, how different types of carbs affect insulin production, how insulin affects fat storage etc.
I also want to find out why just eating more fruit will bring my A1c level back into the pre-diabetic range and if the dairy I am eating (even in the form of yogurt) is a contributing factor.
Looking around on the internet I found this blog post by Jimmy Moore that has a very interesting discussion with a lot of additional links:
livinlavidalowcarb.com/b
log/does-insulin-deserve-a
-bad-reputation-the-low-ca
rb-experts-weigh-in/9458


If anyone is interested in discussing this further I think we could start a thread on the low-carb team.

    Here is Gary Taubes' video and it seems to me that researchers are still trying to figure out among themselves the big picture on insulin and other hormones.

    You can also read Sam Graci's books The Food Connection - The Right Food At The Right Time and emoticon The Power of Super Foods - he does a fantastic piece on explaining all the hormones we have ( insulin being one of them ) and how they interact and how if one is out they are all out ..

    Thanks for posting this! As someone diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and from a family where everyone eventually develops at least pre-diabetes, this is interesting stuff.
