    I am a bit confused on whether or not insulin is a good thing or a bad thing. Will someone please explain insulin and its positive and negative effects concerning body building?

    Insulin is a very good thing, it helps your body regulate blood sugar level. Not being able to produce enough insulin is known as diabetes, which I'm sure you know is a bad thing. The only effect it has on body building specifically (or working out) in increasing creatine absorption. I'm sure someone will have an article or more detailed description.

    Basically, insulin will increase protein synthesis, decrease protein breakdown, and increase fat storage. You want higher insulin levels when bulking and lower insulin levels when cutting, in general terms.
