Does anyone know anything about Atkin's claims that coffee/caffeine can cause an insulin surge?
If so, do you have a theory on why insulin should respond to anything other than raised blood sugar?
Any research articles would be greatly appreciated.
Rob, you were talking about the benefits of a quad espresso for increasing fat burning and increasing GH, is there any research out there on this?

Thanks.

Paul-

Coach and I have talked about this a bit. For the insulin resistant individual caffeine may exacerbate their situation. Once insulin resistance has been reversed it does not seem to pose a problem.

Try putting caffeine, GH, and exercise into pubmed...I think this is where I found the info. Related to the discussion of neuro-endocrine response on another thread, caffeine helps to potentiate an accute adrenal cortical response.

If Atkins claims this, then what does he claim about his Atkins Advantage bars in concern to an insulin surge???
