"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

 

This is one of 93 photos of Andy McCutcheon that are used in The New High-Intensity Training to illustrate the recommended exercises.

"Sixty-seven percent of people who drank a blueberry smoothie twice a day for six weeks experienced a 10% or greater improvement in their insulin sensitivity, compared with 41% of people in the placebo smoothie group. The study results are published in the October issue of The Journal of Nutrition."

About INSULIN, this affects BODYBUILDING in, at least, two ways.

First, supplementation of CREATINE requires a spike in INSULIN via the sugar, pure sucrose, in order to work. Also, people had always complained that FRUCTOSE & CREATINE did not get the same results. Perhaps, we have one reason why the results were different between sugar & fructose, if someone was consuming BLUBERRIES, or bluberry flavoring, which many times is concentrate.

On the other side of the coin, a stasis of insulin (a steady stream) in your bloodstream might be optimal to stay more lean, which that is where the bluberries plays a role; and, if you had read my previous posting on BLUBERRIES (that is linked at the bottom of the posting above), then you would know ABDOMINAL-FAT was affected by bluberries too.

I love blueberries (along with raspberries and strawberries) and when available will regularly consume them as part of my diet.
One big advantage of living in the UK is that we do grow lovely "berries"

SouthBeach,


You're probably correct, and anthocyanins have far-reaching implications into our health. Although I am going to read your linked article, I have read other articles that REVISIT THE FRENCH PARADOX that posits that while reveratrols, plural, played a part, the contact from the grape-seeds in certain wineries enabled PROCYANIDINS to enter the wine, which this chemicals & anthocyanins are interrelated.
