Agreed--to a point only, and dependent upon which individual we are speaking about and their personal circumstances.

There are other dietary manipulations that can be created through diet to bring about certain type of responses, and responses when confronted with a weight reduction complication, but in the end, it does in deed bottom line on the calories and in some cases the content of those calories (pointing to macro manipulation). This is assumes a healthy individual and non-diabetic or other metabolic disorder.

Insulin is only produced when consuming carbs.
This statement is false. For example: look up what consumption of Alcohol does (and lets assume a very low carb type variety). Look up what type responses an individual can get when just consuming protein and no other macros.

Quote:
The definition of insulin is, its a fat storage hormone.
This is generally the name tag that insulin obtains. However, Insulin is a multitasking hormone and has MANY important functions other than a storing duties. Without insulin, the cells in our bodies would not be able to process the glucose and therefore have no energy for movement, growth, repair, or other functions. Insulin is key to unlocking the door of the cell to allow the glucose to be transferred from the bloodstream into the cell. As you can see, its not only a storage hormone. Therefore Insulin assists with shuttling bodily nutrients through the cell structure within the body.

Insulin is one of the most misunderstood hormones and gets a bad rap it doesn't deserve.

Just wanted to clear that up.

MAB brothers, be at peace
