It seems like the only way you could be wrong is if protein acts synergistically rather than independently to spike insulin. I haven't heard that it does, but of course, I'm no nutrition expert.
Speaking of synergy for insulin elevation: Does anyone know exactly how this phenomenon comes about? I read at and elsewhere that combining fat with carbs creates a disproportionately large insulin response, even though fats (by themself) don't really spike insulin.
Additionally: How does Berardi et al's 'fat+carbs=pure evil' theory measure up against Sear's 'fat moderates insulin elevation' (or, 'ice cream is better than bagels) theory?
