We're always hearing about optimizing protein synthesis in order to build muscle and lose fat BUT what is equally important is how responsive your insulin is!!!
Insulin helps to shuttle glucose (digested form of sugar/carbohydrate) into your muscles to aid recovery = growth and fat loss. You need to be insulin sensitive in order for your insulin to be responsive when glucose enters the bloodstream. Type 1 and 2 diabetics and those with pre-diabetes are insulin resistant because their body cannot produce insulin or is not entirely responsive. You can develop insulin resistance without being diagnosed with diabetes via poor sleep, diet, timing of food and excessive stress.
