Ok I read everything there was to read about complex vs simple carbs..
And the result is: everything and the opposite has been said, and yet I cannot for the life of me
find a reliable, clear and simply explained source stating a solid, final word on this.
The reason because I'm interested is because every single time I eat carbs (complex, I don't do
simple *ever*) I feel like hell, the next day I look like sh#t and I'm weak as f#ck..
Awesome isn't it?
This happens only on the day I attempt my refeed, which is once a week on my heaviest wo day
I'm in a very low carb diet all year round (25/30gr a day), BF 4/5%
So, more than one person suggested me to go with simple carbs for the refeed
but I need to bring something up: years ago I was using cereals (like breakfast cereals)
pwo, decent amount of sugar in them and no fat, when I swapped 'em with oats
it made a big as# difference, I started to lean out even more and fill muscles up better etc..
Overall, I just started to look much better.
Then my diet changed, I didn't do pwo carbs (or protein either) anymore started to do warrior diet/IF
and again, things improved.
Now at this BF and ridiculously intense training sessions I tried to start the refeed protocol
once a week several times, I tired any kind of "clean" complex carb and the result is always
the same, stated above.
Rice, potatoes, oats, etc.. even just 40/50gr and everything goes down the hill.
Now, before f#cking up another week/refeed, I decided to ask about this.
What difference is gonna make to use simple carbs (as opposed to complex) for the refeed in terms of bodycomp?
Because from my experience - from the pwo experience I mentioned above - it does make
a hell of a difference in favor of complex carbs, but I don't know for sure
because a lot changed since then, my training, my diet etc.. so I'm not 100% sure that's
what made the difference at the time.
Anyway, any help appreciated
