Bodybuilders use mega doses of insulin to increase nutrient uptake into muscles. It is a terrible idea and a really good way to die but they plan out the necessary carbs to avoid a diabetic crash and the stack a bunch of protein on top of that. Is it effective? Yea probably, there was a study done with a wounded soldier who could not move they used an insulin drip and branch chained amino acids to prevent muscle loss.
