Assuming this model pans out, it will be interesting if insulinogenic food indexes like below will be used to monitor insulin-releasing responses of different foods as a means to limit weight gain/maximize fat loss? Then again, I'm not sure because other studies suggest total calories is king. Nutritional research is very confusing:
The results of this study confirm and also challenge some of our basic assumptions about the relation between food intake and insulinemia. Within each food group, there was a wide range of insulin responses, despite similarities in nutrient composition. The important Western staples, bread and potato, were among the most insulinogenic foods. Similarly, the highly refined bakery products and snack foods induced substantially more insulin secretion per kilojoule or per gram of food than did the other test foods.
An insulin index of foods:the insulin demand generated by 1000-kJ portions of common foods.
