    Cutting Sugar out of diet and insulin sensitivity

    I've decided to drastically reduce my sugar intake. I used to not really care what I ate or drank as long as I was getting enough calories however I realize now that if I keep consuming like I am its a fast track to the diabeetus and thats not good. I have recently looked up the effects of sugar and insulin sensitivity on lifting and the body but I cant really decipher the jargon. In the week since I've done this I feel allot better but I think if I can understand how the body reacts to sugar I can maxamize my results even more.

    So can anyone explain Sugar and insulin sensitivity with respect to building muscle in plain english?

    thanks

    Im novice in this field but have you tried using dextrose with your creatine? That will help spike it.

    wait... I think i misunderstood your question. Hopefully someone will chime in

    Copy/Paste some excerpts from the material you are referring to. I will try my best to decipher the jargon for you. I am no doctor but I did stay at a holiday in express last night (jk)

    I've taken a few nutrition classes and an advanced metabolism class while in College so maybe I can help.
