When you eat simple sugars, is it the sugar itself that make you feel like having more energy or its the insulin spike that cause this feeling?
You dont feel this way eating complex carb...

You get hyper because of the sugar, yes, but then will get VERY tired after the slin levels elevate, especially if you are insulin sensitive.
Slow burning carbs don't create such as spike, and don't lead to lethargy while providing a slower, more constant energy level.

Insulin tolerance can fluctuate, it all runs back to homeostatic adjustments in the body. If you take in nothing but slow burning carbs all the time, your body will be more sensitive to the simple sugars.

Right, cheat meals are effective not only in keeping mental sanity in check, but also throwing the body out of it's normal routine.
