    -OS-Team AppNut
    -16 oz liquid egg whites (I use a vanilla flavored version from www.muscleegg.com)
    -I use about 90-115 grams Quinoa depending on exact car-count I am after
    -A little bit of cinnamon
    -Couple pf packets of sweetener

    Mix thoroughly in a blender and pour batter into non-stick pan. Will make 2-3 pancakes depending on size of pan. Sometimes I do half Quinoa/barley or half Quinoa/oatmeal. To me, straight Quinoa makes the best pancakes.

    You can also use some fake spray butter on them or something like Walden farms or Atkins syrup. This is such an enjoyable meal.

    Coach, do you cook the quinoa first?

    No I do not. However, I WILL cook barley a bit before adding it to the mixture if I utilize it.

    I can attest to trying to make my carbs gluten free make a large difference, for the better.

    Btw you can carb up and be gluten free and still be high GI, just takes a little work

    As for the real contribution to the thread...I think there's enough smart minds here to help out on this.

    Carbs at night, really beneficial or just harmless? High GI or low GI, for benefits in fat loss, Insulin sensitivity, extended lipolysis throughout the day?

    Just wanna get your opinion on the matter...as all I read is both sides, that Carbs at night are harmless, however the High GI to low GI ground for said benefits...seems...hard to define?

  5. What your eating now for carbs is plenty. Just depends on when you eat them. I found eating simple carbs pre and post workout, and lower carbs in the mornings and evenings to work great for bulking and cutting. Excess carbs=excess body fat.

    I would say harmless. We do have this
    www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21475137 which would suggest it MAY be beneficial for total fat loss and better satiety.

    High GI or low GI, for benefits in fat loss, Insulin sensitivity, extended lipolysis throughout the day?
    see Big Reds earlier post. When consumed in a meal the GI becomes irrelevant

  7. Your best bet is to eat most of your carbs early and eat them with protien and some fat to better digest everything,karbolyn after a workout will do the body good.Stop eating anything about 2 hrs before bed time to keep bodyfat to a minimum.

  9. Never ment that you would put on fat but you dont want to consume to many calories before bed because of lack of activity during sleep.You have a better chance of storing the excess calories if you do.

    I'd say it's more closely linked with the presence of insulin during times or rest when GH and IGF release is most significant. GH is blunted by insulin concentrations in the blood stream so it's best to be entering a state of fasting near bed time. Thats my perspective.

    Absolutely correct. Carbohydrates CAN be timed for optimum use and manipulation of the natural hormonal cascade at specific times per day in full accordance with your goals.
