Addiction vs Hyperinsulinemia

Note that Carbohydrate Addiction and transient postprandial reactive Hyperinsulinemia are different critters, but are both set off by carbohydrate load and dense carbohydrates with a high caloric density.

Carbohydrate addiction is a endorphin opioid reward hedonic response low impulse issue. 

Transient postprandial reactive hyperinsulinemia is a after some meals reaction of excess insulin.

Both produce cravings or a hunger for carbohydrates. In the case of hyperinsulinemia, mild exercise will reduce the hunger through GLUT4 transporter.
