Coincidently, I also came across this today from Avant Labs.
If you want to argue these points, you can send him an email.

so there are concerns with caffine, but i don't think insulin senstitivity is very importatn as they go.
note that spook, while against heavy use of caffien, is ok with moderate use (he drinks the coffee), and suggests it be used away from the wieght training. link .
i'm also not sure why you are talking about full depletion since we are talking about bulking not cutting.
Again, back to degree. I've never once said one must eliminate all caffeine from their diet. I'm drinking a delicious cup as I type this. All I'm espousing is that it does have an affect on certain functions and could possibly be detrimental. You've basically added nothing to this discussion aside from stating what you feel, which is basically useless to me. I'm actively participating in the thread in hopes to get something in return from you as to the sources of your opinions, but I've received nothing. I'm ending my part here, because it has thus far been a one-way street.
Caffeine increases lipid oxidation and decreases protein oxidation.
Caffeine used in relative moderation can be a help to your bodybuilding goals.
Hi, I read recently that caffeine should be avoided while in ketosis as it increases blood glucose. This sounds believable as it gives you a feeling of more energy, but I know for a fact that it also promotes fat utilisation. Therefore, caffeine whilst in ketosis: good or bad?
It's kind out of topic but anyways: I have a sensitive stomach. I am getting sick from the stomach again. I just would like to know if drinking coffee while being sick of the stomach is bad. Thanks
