I recently listened to a pod cast where the expert guest mentioned that the idea that excessive protien will trigger an insulin response is a bit exxagerated.
He went on to say that glucogensis is good thing, it ensures that no matter what you do, your body can get the small amounts of glucose that it needs
if we feed ourselves glucose, we use it. if we have fats, glucose is created as the triglycerides are broken down. if we have protiens, we break in down to produce glucose.
He went to describe that the burning of protiens is demand driven and the idea that excess proteins turning into jelly donuts in our blood was often exaggerated.
well, as interesting as it is, I don’t have the expertise to agree or disagree with this.
But I can experiment on myself.
What happens to my breathe keytones if I eat twice the recommeded protien ( in tuna)?
What happens to my breathe ketones if I take my entire daily allowance of protein as 3 protien shakes? with added fat? without added fat?
