As I mentioned in part 7 of this series, for a person without known diabetes/prediabetes who is fat adapted (via a low-carbohydrate, healthy fat, or #LCHF diet), the response to a carbohydrate load may be different than a person who is carbohydrate adapted or continually seeing a massive deluge of carbohydrates and/or processed foods.
