    about saturated fat, but thanks for the link.
    Yeah but in the link it states "Not only that, but the researchers found that drinking full-cream milk and eating other full-fat dairy products also reduced the risk factors for the metabolic syndrome — a collection of conditions which includes obesity and diabetes."

    How is it that eating foods that are supposedly more insulinogenic REDUCES the risk factors for obesity and diabetes when insulin is a fat storage hormone and is involves in diabetes?

      The first link has to do with type II diabetics.

      Anyway, I asked for a link having to do with the claim that full-fat milk is more insulinogenic than fat-free milk. Got one?

          Whew! I was totally concerned with winning. I didn't even know we were having any sort of contest.

          I'm just curious because I currently drink full-fat raw milk, don't shy away from cream or half and half, and enjoy butter. If this stuff is highly insulinogenic then insulin doesn't cause my body to store fat.

            Your right, insulin alone doesn't cause fat storage. I can't get raw milk where I am, but I do consume full fat organic goat milk and organic butter every single day and lots of it.

Protein also raises insulin quite a bit, especially fish, so if you happen to believe in the relevance of the GI you might want to rethink the dairy on the potato. Gastric emptying has nothing/very little to do with the initial insulin response of a food a person eats, just that it takes longer to digest. just saying
                *psst! Not really lol! But I would prefer the 41g carbs from a cup of potato than the 81g from sweet potatoes. It just helps me sleep better at night :P *
                Calm the f**k down.

                  CRONICALLy elevated insulin causes inflammation and insulin resistance/fatty liver/cholesterol problems and THAT causes fat storage... not just insulin=fat....if that was true i'd be gaining weight because my blood sugar spikes when i eat. the point is it doesnt stay up, it comes back to its baseline.
