Can someone properly explain this to me? I understand you get them from having high carb meals? Or, maybe having a soda, juice, something like that?
How much carbs/sugar does it take for you to have an insulin spike?
How long does the spike last?
Are they a bad thing?
Can they promote weight gain?
Can they help muscle gain?
Also, if your happy with your size/weight and workout 5 days a week, is it ok to go out and have ice cream on occasion, or eat pizza, etc? I don't eat fast food, but every now and then having ice cream with a date or something...I mean, as long as i stay within my maintenance calories, I'm not going to get fat by eating unhealthy food, right?
