You are probably referring to a study recently published in the Journal of American Medical Association that showed a direct link between insulin resistance (poor sugar metabolism) and nutritional intake. The Harvard researchers found that a diet rich in dairy foods does help protect against insulin resistance. Many bodybuilding experts exclude dairy foods from the diets of people in the high-risk category for adult-onset diabetes. This new research shows that this strategy is not warranted and may actually be detrimental to lean mass gains.

Reversing insulin resistance (re-sensitizing muscle cells and other organs to insulin) is a very achievable process. Intense exercise is the first part, and from this new research, it appears that a diet rich in low-fat dairy foods may help prevent insulin resistance in cells and maintain optimal carbohydrate metabolism throughout life.

I recently heard of a report that suggests dairy foods help sensitize muscles to insulin, is this true?
