How does Natural Balance Shake give energy in spite of having such a low energy/carbohydrate content?

When you drink Natural Balance Shake, you get the protein and fats you need, but few calories from carbohydrates. A hormone called glucagon, which mobilizes the sugar stored in the liver, is then released from the pancreas so that your body still gets what it needs. The next time you eat more calories from carbohydrates, they are absorbed into the blood as glucose, a lot of this glucose will restore the storage of glucose in the liver, and this is what is called a ‘second meal effect’: in spite of eating a lot of carbohydrates, even with a high glycemic index, the blood sugar response will be low.
