View Full Version : Does yogurt give you energy?

06-14-2004, 02:57 PM
I was getting tired at work, and then ate 1/2 cup ff plain yogurt.

I have energy now. Has the yogurt affected my insulin levels or something? Anyone know of a good link about insulin, what it does, and how I can control my energy level throughout the day while eating 4000 cals (bulking).

insulin makes you sleepy

a stable blood glucose level BGL makes you alert and energized

my guess is the small amount of low GI carbs brought your BGL up to baseline

wish I had a link to sum it all up...all I can say is start googling and have fun putting the little pieces together

Great Site about GI's, but not much about insulin -
