    Meat and insulin response

    Now i'm doing carb back loading. First half day high fat/low carb and after workout carb load. I wanted to know does meat couses to rise insulin level ? I read that it doubles after eating meat. So how it is ? P.S. i feel fine after eating meat. Thanks for answers.

    Yes meat, protein actually, does raise insulin as much as but not as fast as carbs do.
    NO SOURCES GIVEN

    I've heard of the meat sweats

    Personally though, I get insulin spikes from too much sugary foods ... Twice I've nearly blacked out from a Starbucks coffee

    Beef does not seem to stand out among many other items. The wikipedia article for insulin index has a nice table for comparison. Fish is more insulinogenic apparently.

    Also as gymffiti mentions sugars are worse and in higher amounts even worse. I can handle white flour but if I overdo it with simple sugars I need to take a nap shortly after.

    In normal people you shoukd never really go above 100mg/dl

    In diabetics, completely different.

    If your above 100 a lot after foods, better find out underlying cause

    I think you got that wrong, 70-100mg/dl (3.9-5.5mmol/L) is the normal range before a meal.

    There are diabetics in my family and have always been concerned myself. I have pretty good blood sugar levels and response to food. Hopefully it will stay that way as I age
