Do you advise significant carbs "all the time" or just during post-workout hours? A general outline of your favoured diet would be useful I suppose. Also what protein intakes do you think are neccessary? Perhaps higher protein diets require less dietry carbs due to increased gluconeogenesis and their own insulinogenic effects.

A point that Discus Lifter makes on the thread linked above at IA is that protein's insulinogenic effect is different to a carb-mediated one in that the latter promotes fat storage by other mechanisms too. The latest M&M issue has the article on SREBP-1 proteins, including

"In fact, high glucose levels attained through high carbohydrate diets can positively augment SREBP-1c activity independent of insulin"

I look forward to the next installment which "will discuss how one can utilize several different nutrition and supplementation techniques to keep SREBP-1c in check."

I suppose that individual differences have great effects on what macronutrient ratios should best be employed. Do you have any other threads where this is discussed, dude?

Thanks

My meal schemes are simple..no fancy schemes....... depending on goal or bodyweight of course. But i like to recomend diets simple to follow and ones that work.

for bulking i like to employ 5-6 meals equally caloricly divides. All of them containing one green veggie ( brocholis and spinich my favorites) one beta carotene veggie ( pumpkin and carrots are my favorites ) a whole carb source like sweet potatoes, corn, green pea, brown rice......a lean meat and i like to employ skin milk with every meal for the ones that are not intolerent......allways put a fruit serving as desert..... no shakes or macro timing....

Dan, your talk of inflammtion being reduced by a carb-based diet (by displacement of inflammatory high-fat levels) seems to run opposed to many mentions of inflammation, in which is primarily linked to insulin levels (positively), and high-carb diets are said to be the pro-inflammatory option.

high insulin levels are achieved by high caloric diets .....plus long term low carb eating will reduce your muscle insulin resistence while short term it increases....

Now we ae talking here about people with normal metabolism, fit and who do sports regulalrly..... INSULIN IN NORMAL PHYSIOLOGICAL LEVELS IS PERFECTLY FINE...

people still seem to forget this......of course we are not going to give a high carb diet for somebody obese with hyperinsulenemia........

now just eat the diet ratios you think is better for you, just eat clean and you will be fine....donīt get too stressed about this.......all this cortisol you are trowing in your body will certainly do more harm then high fat or highcarb diets....
