People on the MDA forum seem to have mixed opinions on the importance of monitoring insulin. However, for my own purposes, I like to have some idea of how insulinogenic some primal foods are.
I know, on one hand, that a serving of beef will stimulate insulin, but will ALSO stimulate glucagon which somewhat balances out the body's response. Does whey protein produce glucagon as well?
I'm most concerned, however, with non-meat fat sources. In terms of insulin response, where do coconut cream, heavy whipping cream, butter, and olive oil pan out, from least to most insulinogenic? I have read that butter/cream are actually LESS insulinogenic than olive oil... can anybody confirm?
