Improved carbohydrate tolerance and stimulation of carbohydrate oxidation and lipogenesis during short-term carbohydrate overfeeding.

The carbohydrate intake of seven healthy men was increased from 220-265 g/d to 620-770 g/d for 17 days, while protein and fat intake remained constant. Carbohydrate loading did not affect the preprandial plasma glucose levels after an overnight fast, but reduced the postprandial increment in plasma glucose levels after 5, 11, and 17 days of overfeeding… CONTINUE READING
