Gluconeogenesis (GNG) from now on haha!
GNG will not cause weight gain.
GNG usually only happens when your blood sugar is too low (ie. it keeps you from dying in your sleep) and after intense exercise.
GNG will not cause a spike in insulin or all the nasty effects because GNG happens inside the cell (endoplasmic reticulum specifcally).
Amino Acids are converted to glucose and used directly on site no insulin required.
GNG does not occur with the digestion of "too much" protein.
Protein might spike insulin but GNG is not the metabolic pathway that causes it.
(I am trying to find out proteins effect on insulin. It would seem that there are certain amino acids that have a high insulinotropic effect after digestion)
I always assume people know what I am talking about. Big mistake.
Not that I think you should know what I am talking about. Bah! See what I mean haha!
