The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Glycemic Reaction to Proteins

    Does anybody know where Whey, Casein, Egg protein lay on the Glycemic index?

    I was asking about Insulin response to Succralose, Aspartame, on Lyle McD's board, and they mentioned that people often forget that protein often triggers a higher insulin response then people realize.

    Insulin is both a good and bad thing.

    Insulin is a transport hormone. It shuttles proteins and carbohydrates into muscles for repair and for storage.

    Insulin presence in the bloodstream also prevents mobilization of fat stores and is also responsible for transporting excess energy into fat cells.

    Insulin manipulation is a good thing.

    It was done on diabetics so I'm not sure how it realates to BB, but it's interesting.

    The insulin area following glucose was only modestly greater than with a protein meal (97 +/- 35, 83 +/- 19 microU X h/ml, respectively).
    This tells me with protein still spikes insulin, just not as much as CHO's.

    I'm gonna try to find something better...

    By definition, whey and other proteins are not on the glycemic index.

    "Glycemic index (also glycaemic index, GI) is a ranking system for carbohydrates based on their immediate effect on blood glucose levels."

    Also, apartame and sucralose are not carbohydrates, thus they are not on the index.
