Spiking Insulin is Mandatory! At least for some of us.
Get in touch with your insulin and blood sugar levels. Yes it’s bad to Constantly have high insulin. This results in automatic glycogen/fat storage depending on what is in your stomach. But if you want to gain muscle and actually progress, be smart and disciple on how/when you raise this insulin. You’re gonna have to eat some of them good ole simple carbs when you break a fast, get done lifting, or feel your body eating itself. Or you will turn into a skinny little boy. Now that your insulin is raised you will find yourself buzzing with hunger, now is the time to shuttle some lean protein into your mouth. Then wait a few hours before eating any veggies or fats so that your blood flow can work it’s magic (it’s okay to have a little broccoli as long as insulin stays elevated) However if you’re already stocky with lots of muscle mass and want to cut down, then keep that blood sugar stable and be content with your mellow energy. Not many insulin spikes will be needed my friend.
