    That guy was diabetic though. That makes a big difference.

    Maybe you were confusing (or the teacher was) cortisol and insulin . they are sometimes discussed together being as one hormone goes up the other goes down , and Cortisol is a catabolic hormone , but insulin is an anabolic hormone (or at very least aides in anabolism).

    I run 20-30iu of insulin for various reasons, but one of those reasons is around my workout with carbs because this is going to mitigate cortisol (which is a catabolic hormone , that is often released when your doing a heavy workout . but with high amounts of insulin and carbs present then cortisol will not be released)
