Carbohydrates during high intensity exercise does not raise insulin levels

Runners where put through an intense bout of interval training and received either carbohydrates or a placebo. Interestingly, no differences in plasma insulin, cortisol or free fatty acids were observed.

The carbohydrate group did achieve higher lactate levels during exercise, which could indicate a supression of fat burning or just a higher intesity achieved.
