    Is the main time fat storage happens when blood sugar levels are very high like 180-200+ then thats when the insulin starts fat storage. Lower levels it puts it into muscle cells and liver?

    If you can clear this up for me it would be great.

    • well it will go to fat if the liver and muscle glycogen are full, there will be nowhere else to put the glucose and your body will want to remove it from the blood as fast as possible so if repair and growth is needed it will go toward that but if not, it will be stored as fat

        scivation lean mass diet for insulin control is amazing. i started adding fibrous veggies and fat to every meal to stabalize insulin and bam my body skyrocketed to new levels. not hungry all the time, decrease in BF, steady flow of nutrients and i still get lots of carbs!

          mostly true, but far more complex than that and something like that... it's very difficult to accurately simplify and have everything hold true

                    It just so happens that I've spent the past couple hours combing through this thread to make the official Layne Norton FAQ So here's Layne's take on Keto diets:

                    Ketogenic diets have always been thought of as 'protein sparing' because ketones spare blood glucose which will reduce gluconeogenesis (conversion of amino acids to glucose) and ketones can be used as fuel, however ketones can only be used by aerobic metabolism. Weightlifting is quite anaerobic and studies have shown performance is very closely correlated to levels of muscle glycogen & glucose availability. Is keto a good way to lose fat very quickly? yes. But if you give yourself ample time... why not have carbs? They are not evil and are quite useful. Also keto diets will make it more difficult to fill out when it comes time to do so, it takes weeks to adapt to a ketogenic diet, so when you come off of keto it will take weeks to adapt to carbohydrates back in the diet and so if you are trying to carb up a few days before the show after you did keto for 12 + weeks I'm afraid you will have very little idea what to expect as you will essentially be challenging your body with something it isn't accustomed to. If you choose to do a ketogenic diet and not re-introduce carbohydrates, I would do a moderate protein/fat load and only increase carbs very slightly.

                            I actually made one from a thread over at bb.com from the contest prep section that layne had. It took me a while but I got it all done. Layne if you would like I can email you the word document and you can do with it as you please.
