Get some protein with those carbs


Waffles with some protein. Not bad tasting.

My sister talked to an endocrinologist and she suggested that she might be Insulin resistant. I checked out this book at BN.

The gist of it is that some people have a particular problem in dealing with insulin release in their body. This issue manifests itself in several ways: having a hard time losing weight, fat around the stomach, type II diabetes, hypoglycemia symptoms...All of which I have or people in my family have.

The solution according to the book is linking and balancing carbs and protein. It's something my wife, how has a masters in nutrition has suggested to in the past to me and something that I have succesfully been doing for the past few years after I started bonking from just eating cereal then riding into work. Adding an eggwhite, sausage or other protein has helped. But the book is providing a better understanding of the ratio of carb to protein.
