I THOUGHT FRUCTOSE WAS USELESS FOR REPLENISHING GLYCOGEN
its gotta help somewhat jsut not as fast..... i combine liek smarties with a banana sumtimes..... mix of different types of carbs i like to do that
malto or dex, whatever i have, about 50gms in my post-WO protein shake, then 1-2 hours again later.
I had a pretty intense discussion with seth roberts about fructose about a year ago... needless to say the guy knows his shtit. Hopefully I can remember this accuratelyyea the only difference is that fructose has to be processed through the liver, so 100% glucose is technically faster digesting
i like dex/malt myself
Anyways the liver is the only place fructose can be metabolized. However the conversion isn't directly fructose=glucose. Fructose must first be broken down into a cofactor. From this point, the cofactors can be synthesized into either glucose or non-essential fatty acids. Synthesis of TGL's from fructose has priority over glucose I believe. However I'm also pretty sure that these FA's have a negative impact on the blood lipid profile; and in the case of HFCS the insulogenic effects of glucose shuttle these triglycerides straight into fat cells.
Scientifically, nothing. Contextually there is a bit of a difference. The naturally occurring fructose in fruits both in free form and di/poly saccharides aren't in nearly the concentrations compared to a can of soda sweetened with HFCS. Fructose isn't terrible by itself, it refills liver glycogen quite fast, but afterwhich it will almost principally be metabolized into triglycerides. Combine this with a sugar driven insulin spike and that's where problems begin.So then if thats the case, whats the difference in terms of processing between HFCS and fructose from fruit? i would imagine that our bodies are designed to properly break down the fructose from fruit; some countries in warm climates base their diets mostly from fruit.
so are u saying to avoid fruit post workout then?
i eat an apple immediately after my shake then some sweet potatoes after that
Quite the contrary, IMO you should just avoid concentrated sources of fructose, ie concentrated fruit juice, anything w/ HFCS.so are u saying to avoid fruit post workout then?
hfcs is not good ever
