How much of an insulin response from getting 150g~ protein in 1-3 meals?
Wouldn't the idea of a warrior type diet/feeding window be a bit harmful in regards to the insulin spiking with massive amounts of protein in each meal? That's not even putting a moderately high carb diet into the equation alongside it..
Would it not make more sense to spread the protein evenly throughout the day to remain in good energy levels and optimal performance, ala 4+ meals? Surely the 1-3 meals with 50g+ protein in each will create large spikes and will be damaging over time (insulin resistance?)?
Remember I'm only talking about protein and insulin, not metabolism.
For performance athletes, this is an important question. Bodybuilding and people who train for aesthetics shouldn't worry about it, since performance is not an important factor no?
