As I said though one absorbs slower than the other.. which makes their response on insulin different. If something is being absorbed slower it's going to have a different effect.

For example, it's like taking 100g of sugar and throwing it into your bloodstream all at once vs. only 10g/hour.

I just drink milk and eat plain yogurt/cheese.
That's great it works for you. Really depends on the person though... which is why most of us are experimenting with our diets a lot.
