I have been reading a bit recently on the ins and outs of insulin sensitivity. A recurring theme is that people who are less insulin sensitive do better on higher protein/fat diets and people who are more insulin sensitive do better with higher carb/lower fat.
My question to you: Do you own a blood glucose monitor? I would love to see your results for a self-administered oral glucose tolerance test. It's easy to do, eat a potato or rice on an empty stomach and test BG every 15 minutes for an hour.
I'm beginning to think that this may be the root of why so many do better on one type of diet while others do better on another.
Anybody else own a blood tester and want to be a guinea pig?
I've been checking mine for several weeks and find my insulin sensitivity increases daily with meals of potato.
Just a thought for science' sake.
