    Yeah, I was curious to know more, or possibly read some studies that tell me more. I know it works first hand because I’m diabetic on insulin and if I eat a mixed diet with a fair amount of fat my insulin ratio is 1:3 but if I reeeeeeally ramp up the starch (like 80% of the meal) I have hit a 1:6 ratio which is awesome for me (ie 1/2 the insulin for the same amount of carbs). I was curious if this is something just mediated by fat or if protein factored in too.

    Hopefully someone familiar with this idea will chime in.

    Is anyone here monitoring their blood sugar with starch? I have been checking it out over the past week. If I eat a meal where 30-40% is fat then my Carb Ratio to Insulin is 1:3 but if fat is 10-20% only then my ratio goes all the way to 1:5 sometimes 1:6…. I can eat almost DOUBLE the carbs for the same amount of insulin. Pretty interesting stuff. Anyone else around here using Matt’s Ideas to help with Insulin Resistance?
