I do read the discussion above and I have been wanting to know for long time as to what should be called a decent insulin spike, in terms of rise in blood glucose levels.
My fasting glucose level is 82.

So after consuming my post workout shake, to what level glucose in my blood should rise to facilitate optimal muscle growth.
120
or 130
or may be 140 etc.
Thanks very much in advance.

Boggle.

But if, purely hypothetically, someone tells you "get it to 120" and you don't have your own glucose meter, then how are you going to know when you're at 120?

82 is a perfectly normal fasting glucose. Many factors affect the glucose level, activity, diet, metabolism. It goes up and down all the time. Except for a research situation it's not practical to test for post work-out levels.

dear all,

Please understand that I just want to broadly understand this to optimize the gains.
You may share approximate figures.
