Proteins and carbohydrates generally elicit the highest DIT. This may be caused in part by increased insulin secretion. In contrast, little DIT is found from eating fats. However, this is not always the case.

Is it also true that proteins elicit much higher DIT than carbohydrates?


[ QUOTE ]
A way to acutely improve DIT is through exercise, which incidentally, enhances insulin sensitivity. Therefore, it is commonly advised to train before eating carbohydrates, to enhance insulin sensitivity, and therefore, DIT.

Wouldn't it then be more advisable to have a high protein, low carbohydrate meal upon waking, which would be followed by training? Would that have an effect on DIT?
