That's a straw man.ApolytonGP wrote:Yeah, but if you think that high carb creates muscle wastage, you should see even more of a difference at the high carb to middle carb, than middle to low (diminishing returns).
anyhow...I still want to see the muscle wastage advocates (or magical keeping calories on, when should be starving) bring some proof of their views to the table. Doesn't follow Ockham's razor.
Protein intake and resistance training is what determines muscle mass. It is a fact that using the muscle and taking in as much protein as your body can possibly use, is the only natural way to prevent muscle loss in a catabolic state.
I don't think anyone would dispute that.
Insulin is the one and only fat storage hormone. Nobody disputes that.
Sugars (glucose, sucrose etc) stimulate insulin release. Nobody disputes that.
Carbs metabolize into sugars. This is by definition, so it can't be disputed.
Taking these facts into consideration one can work out with logic alone, that one can manipulate insulin (and therefore fat storage) with carb consumption. People dispute that, despite the fact that if the above facts are true, this logically MUST also be true.
