Insulin spike after workout...negative effects?

  1. Insulin spike after workout...negative effects?


    The idea of spiking insulin after a tough workout can't be completely foolproof, right? I feel I have been adding some puffiness in face/stomach specifically, and haven't noticed any spectacular gains. Anyone else recognize this?
    Progress leads to success.

    Your probly overdoing it bro.. Its not an open window to eat watever the phuck you want.. it slightly facilitates how nutrients are stored

  3. This is how I spike my insulin and keep my cortisol levels low, pre workout= carbs+sugar+amino+creatine+glu ta, I keep it spiked all through my workout by sipping on a similar mix except i make sure it either contains sucralose or maltodextrin and protein at least 5-15g (look up Xtend it contains everything essential for intra except protein),post workout right away I drink 30-50g protein shake,40-50g carbs,5g creatine,5g gluta,aminos

    This is how i keep myself at peak during training, during the growth phase carbs are crucial to keep insulin levels spiked, about 1g of carbs per 5-8g of protein, hopes this helps

    Do high GI (fast) carbs PWO equate to a faster rate in lbm gains?

    I haven't practiced this before three weeks ago. My question was the fact that I have noticed a little more body fat specifically around midsection and face.

  9. watch your carbs and fat intake, too much carbs= high cortisol, I know what you mean, I just started with this and am still trying to measure the right amount
