View Full Version : Leafy Greens + Insulin

09-16-2005, 12:06 PM
I was talking to my friend on MSN about his diet, and he is eating alot of leafy greens because and I quote: "well yea thats one but leafy greens keep insulin levels low so metabolism can stay high. so i eat a ****ton of lettuce everday."

Is that true?? I never though Insulin levels and metabolism had a corrolation??

i think you want a insulin spike after you work out.. otherwise less or no gains
