Nutrient-dense whole foods don’t come in prepackaged satchels of protein, carbs, fat, fibre and calories that you can mix together to meet specific macronutrient and calorie […]

putting it all together… protein and net carbs

So far we’ve learned that carbohydrate alone isn’t a fantastic predictor of insulin requirement. The observation that protein requires about half as much insulin as carbohydrate improves our estimation of insulin demand. Then understanding that fibre neutralises the insulin effect of carbohydrates also helps us predict the amount the amount of insulin required by a particular food. […]

These foods will help you to maintain excellent blood glucose levels by reducing the insulin load of your diet while at the same time maximising nutrient density to minimise cravings and allow you to get the nutrients you need with less food. More than carbohydrates or the glycemic index, the food insulin index data suggests that our blood […]
