Okay, let's say I binged on sugary cereal, if I go and skip rope, jumping jacks or run, will the insulin spike be maintained?
Is there a way to prevent/control the insulin spike after eating sugar (or white flour products) so that you don't get that sleepy feeling (crash) or unwanted fat gain?
Occasionally, when I eat sugary foods or white flour products (unintentionally), I go and do some cardio. It makes me feel better in terms of mentality, but would it also help me reduce the fat gain caused by the food.
Theoretically, whole grains release energy slowly and sustainly, but white flour and sugar releases energy immediately and spikes the insulin to roof top and then crash, so If after eating white flour/sugar you sit down on your ass it will be stored as fat. What if I do cardio after eating that? Will the adverse effects of white flour/sugar be prevented?
Some pre-workout sports drink (like Red-bull original) also contains **** loads of sugar, right?
EDIT: I found an interesting study. "According to a 2007 study published by the American College of Nutrition, black tea can help reduce blood sugar by up to 40 percent right after eating a meal of high-glycemic foods. The study suggests that drinking 12 oz. black tea can lower blood sugar."
