Amino Acid-Induced Skeletal Muscle Insulin Resistance
For a long time, the high protein diets were believed to cause weight loss by lowering the insulin response to a meal. However, as more and more research accumulates, we are finding that proteins definitely have an impact on insulin response.
This article suggests that this impact has a negative impact by increasing insulin resistance. I have been strongly against high protein diets for most patients and the evidence continues to support this type of dietary pattern as harmful in the long run.
