To argue with me about a very particular protein causing insulin release does not in any way defeat my purpose of having whole food proteins coming in at a 1.5:1 ratio of protein to carbs, measure in grams. Best results happen there.
    nope, ALL dietary protein will illicit some sort of insulin response. It is not exclusive to whey. Obviously the response is going to be like the response from CHO intake but a response will still occur.

    Point is it is not an acceptable reference. Show actual data and not just someones opinion.

    And no, I dont have a need to be right as I have no problem with changing my belief and stance if I am presented with compelling evidence, what I do have is a problem with people spreading misinformation.

  3. You previuosly asked me to show you a study where whey caused an increase in insulin and now you are showing me a study saying "whey can increase insulin"?

    I'm done for now. You continue to change your argument as I make my points. When I can get to a computer ill continue.

    ok. But does arguing with me about whey and whether or not protein causes insulin release really conflict with the point of my argument? I never wanted to camp out on insulin response to protein, I wanted to camp out on insulin response to carbs (and whether or not high carb diets cause fat accumulation). And I also had a decent argument about fats calories being more likely to store up into fat droplets when compared to carbs. In fact, they are 10 times more likely to store up as fat cells to be exact. All of this was in attempt to suggest to the OP that low carb dieting isn't the way to go and that there are ways to lose the fat without sacrificing muscle mass.

    While you guys are winning the argument about whey protein causing an insulin response, you've completely diverted attention away from the point of my post, which had nothing to do with proteins alone, but more to do with insulin and glucagon response.

    Man I'm sorry to stir up trouble. Seems when someone tries to go against the grain they get a lot of push-back in here. I'm tired of pioneering to be honest. I'll just shut up and go away for you guys.

    In the excerpt you posted (attached) the author states one should keep their fat intake at 5% of their total caloric intake.

    it was the discussion when I stumbled into the thread. There was too many post and so much nonsense to go back and quote it all

    No single macro is going to lead to fat automatic fat gain on its own.

    lowering carb intake does not necessarily mean you are going to loose muscle.

    Pioneering what? lol.. Your post arent against the grain, they are the grain. High carb/low fat is better is what the popular belief is. Lowering carbs and higherig fat i take is the stance thy goes against conventional beliefs

  7. Ok. so where to start........

    Insulin is a . Insulin causes cells in the liver, muscle, and fat tissue to take up glucose from the blood, storing it as glycogen in the liver and muscle, and stopping use of fat as an energy source. When insulin is absent (or low), glucose is not taken up by body cells, and the body begins to use fat as an energy source, for example, by transfer of lipids from adipose tissue to the liver for mobilization as an energy source. As its level is a central metabolic control mechanism, its status is also used as a control signal to other body systems (such as amino acid uptake by body cells). In addition, it has several other anabolic effects throughout the body.

    The bolded above that you posted shows that if you keep your carbs lower, which in return keeps insulin low your body will turn to fat to burn energy, and in return use adipose tissue. You will drop BF by lowering your carbs.

    I honestly do not know why you keep showing the definition of insulin in the first place. It neither proves me wrong that whey will raise it, nor proves your theory right that by raising it with more carbs it will help you lose weight.

    I just don't like the idea of using wikipedia when my 11 year old son can go in and edit it. Granted a lot of it is correct, I will not use a source from it to argue a point.


    Most discussions like this are because both parties think they are right. You have your opinion, as do I. It doesn't make this forum one sided just because someone wants to argue a point.

    You stated in the beggining of this discussion that you wanted to see sources showing the realationship between low fats and low testosterone. And that whey has the ability to raise insulin. I showed my side of it. I also see that this discussion can go on and on because there will always be conflicting studies.

    So I will leave it alone from here. All I ask is if you are going to ask someone to show studies to back up what they are stating that you do the same. I never seen a study saying raising your carbs will help you burn more carbs and lose BF or that lowering your fats will not affect your test levels.

  8. Also discussions like this help, more than they hurt because studies can be shown and the affects of different supplementation.

    Protein doesn't cause insulin release. Sugar does, Which is present in every whey product.

    Regardless of cutting or bulking, the body needs a certain amount of calories to maintain its current lean body mass. When ur macro layout has a higher amount of protein and lower amount of carbs (while not cutting calories), ur body tends to have a higher amount of glucagon in the blood stream thus leading toward a more favorable environment for cutting. The solution isnt to cut calories, but rather to avoid fat accumulation while ramping up fat burning activities.

    Carbs only store up as fat cells when u eat too many carbs at once, causing a large insulin spike. Such a spike occurs when u eat refined carbs and simple carbs. If carbs are causing fat accumulation then its because ur diet isnt top notch and could use improvements.

    This is why I say avoid a high fat diet and avoid refined and simple carbs that tend to be stored up as fat. Also, fructose, which is in virtually all fruits, almost exclusively stores up as fats.

    This isnt theory. This is science. Everyone's body has the same processes. Some have a more sensitive hormone system than others - thisbis true. But what takes place in my body is for the most part the same as it is with urs.

  10. Would it be safe to say that the ultra high level pro bodybuilders are using test, growth hormone, and insulin to prepare for contests? Thus, giving them the ability to eat higher carbs lower fat without gaining the fat?

    Haha, they literally use the kitchen sink bro. Gh, test, every anabolic you can imagine, orals, insulin, peptides, seo, tanning agents, thyroid medications, stimulants, relaxants, pain medications, all in high doses, and all YEAR round. When they say "genetics" they aren't referring to their bicep peak or quad sweep. They are referring to their ability to handle all of these drugs with their health still somewhat in tact. It is a sad truth my friend, but it is the truth. To answer your question though, yes they all play a role(super supps) but the main ones for high carbs and eating crazy amounts of food and stil getting to 4% body fat, are GH, t3, clen, and DNP. DNP actually INCREASES thermogenesis when you eat more carbs. Meaning, it enahcnes fat loss MORE with MORE carbs.

(You will NOT lose muscle mass in the first place, as long as you increase your protein intake, to compensate for your carb reduction. It is very basic macrunitrient manipulation.)
    If u convert ur carbs to "clean" carbs, including fiber and protein in the presence of every meal will mitigate almost all fat accumulations. (So will a ketogenic diet, but it will do it FASTER. You cannot beat a diet that has your body burning FAT as it's primary energy source.)

    Protein doesn't cause insulin release. (Wow, YES it DOES.) Sugar does, Which is present in every whey product. (INCORRECT, ever see Isopure Zero Carb and MANY other Zero sugar, Zero carb whey proteins?)

    You clearly have read a lot, but you also clearly don't have a lot of real world experience. Ever heard of Dave Palumbo? Yea, well he does HIGH FAT and LOW carb diets with all his clients, some are IFBB pros, and he is an IFBB pro. Even in his off-season, he ONLY had 50g carbs pre and post workout. Well tell me something, did he lose muscle mass? I am currently doing keto right now in my contest prep with STELLAR results. I'm leaner AND GAINED muscle mass over these past 12 weeks. If you don't know about nutrition, macronutrients, nutrient timing, PROPER cardio whuile ON a keto diet, etc, then yes, you will lose muscle and look like garbage. If you DO know about the PROPER way to utilize a HIGH FAT and LOW CARB diet, you will be golden. There are MANY ways to skin a cat, and your hinting that keto and any other low carb diet is crap, is just ridiculous. You do NOT NEED a higher carb, higher fiber diet to get shredded AND gain muscle mass, PERIOD. I wouldn't be so condescending if it wasn't for your choise of words and thinking you know everything there is to know about nutrition.

  14. Do I look like I lost muscle to you?

  15. Sorry for the hijack OP. In my personal opinion, which is ONLY my opinion, is that you need to know YOUR body to decide which diet is best for you. Keto isn't the BEST diet for everyone, and neither is a carb cycling diet, or higher carb, very low fat diet. EVERYONE responds differently to EVERY SINGLE THING. When you eat 50g complex carbs for example, do you get bloated? If so, chances are you are pretty sensitive to insulin, meaning keto would be a great approach for you, or carb cycling, but in a different way, where you only have carbs ever OTHER meal on workout days, then on non-wo days, you only have ONE carb meal. There is NO end all be all diet, and NO set plan will EVER work the SAME for ANY 2 people. EVERYBODY is different. Take a 220lb male bodybuilder, take another 220lb male bodybuilder. Have them train exactly the same way, eat exactly the same way, and diet exactly the same way, they will NOT look the same, have the same bodyfat % at the end of the diet, weigh the same, nor feel the same on said program.

(DEPENDING on the OTHER macros involved in the equation. If you have 100g carbs per meal and 100g fat, of COURSE you will get fat from that.
