Caffeine decreases insulin sensitivity?

  1. Exclamation Caffeine decreases insulin sensitivity?


    So PLEASE tell me this isn't true! Seems to be true based on all the research out there on it, that it decreases insulin sensitivity
    I love me some Caffeine preworkout/coffee/ECA ect... now I'm second guessing it. What do you all think?

    News - Caffeine Can Decrease Insulin Sensitivity

  2. I've come across this too, but never looked much into it. I would imagine that caffeine in a pre-wo drink or whatever would be fine. Seeing that basically EVERY pre-wo supplement has caffeine it to some degree or another. I would just avoid it for the rest of the day. Possibly look at cycling your pre-wo supplements as well. Maybe use your favorite (assuming it has caffeine) for a month or two, then do a home blend of some sort w/o caffeine for a couple months.

    According to these articles then, fat burners (Meltdown, Recreate, ect..) are acutally making you gain fat. Crazy!

  4. which is why I stay away from Stim-based fat burners brother. The last stim-based fat burner I used was Xenadrine about 7 years ago.

    DCP and hardwork homey lol

  5. I find it amazing this isn't getting more attention being caffeine is in like almost every single suppliment (preworkout/fatburing ect..) and being insulin plays such an important role in carbohydrate transport...
