Do you have an understanding on how caffiene can effect people with insulin resistance?

Not a good working understanding of it...I have read some info that it could impair glucose metabolism somehow. I have given up many things in life...I just gotta have my caffeine!

[quote=Shanny;18424]Oh you're gonna have fun, Matt . . . I'm a foodie too & it's a blast working out great dishes with little or no carbs - it truly is!!! This is how silly it gets in my kitchen sometimes . . .


That's my kind of breakfast.

Thanks for the technical info on the tests. It's good to know what I'm getting into before I go to the Docs.

Cheers

I'm with you there. I think I'll hold on to the morning coffee hit until I'm told otherwise.

I am getting a better sense from you all about how much food effects us and I can see a pattern emerging. I've been thinking back to how I have felt over the last year and there are times I've felt full of energy and times when it's been pretty rubbish and I know it's linked to when I'm more focused on what I eat, making more time to enjoy the food I cook, rather then convenient processed foods.
