Absolutely! If you can wade through it, there's so much good information now on the endocrinology of nutrition...I really can't understand how "experts" justify clinging to the old standards. Most discussions start with insulin, but then you add in leptin and gliadin and the whole cascade of defenses our bodies enjoin to keep us alive... this is just another "magic." We are wonders, truly.

If you're of a mind to research more deeply, see if you can find "Mastering Leptin," by Bryon Richards. Dr. Kruse's blog is another good one. When you understand the fine and delicate balance our bodies need to maintain, it's easy to be frightened by all the hormonally derived "diet aids" that are available to us now. I don't care if they *are* by prescription. I wouldn't do a thing to fiddle with that balance.

I'm glad you got some good info. Keep going! It's a whole new world out there these days.

Just one of the paragraphs:

But thatís not it. Foods high in carbohydrates will also create a spike in blood glucose. To balance this out, your pancreas releases insulin to lower your sugar levels. This insulin is designed to protect your body in case of hunger and it encourages your body to store extra fat for future use. And thereís a final kicker. The insulin released sends a message to your body telling it not to release any stored fat. This means that excessive consumption of carbohydrates will make you fat and keep you fat.

Makes good reading. :)
