July 17 - New Study Shows IR precedes Obesity and Involves Abnormal Glucose Metabolism

UPDATED PAGE: You Did Not Eat Your Way To Diabetes
Added a summary of brand new study published in PNAS (and not yet available online), based on a press release. This study which showed lean people with insulin resistance turned high carb meals into triglycerides while lean people with insulin sensitivity stored the glucose from the high carb meal as glycogen

Researchers point out that IR is clearly not being caused by obesity in this situation but precedes it and is characterized by a tendency to store energy as fat.
