    a good compromise would be whole wheat basmati, which I may just try as well (s'posed to be pretty good, never had)

    sure

    brown rice has been hulled with bran intact; this gives it the chewy texture and nutty flavor, and it contains vitamins, minerals, and fiber..is why it requires longer cooking time because the bran is a barrier to water
    hence - more nutritious

    vs

    white basmati "popcorn rice" is long-grain variety well-liked for its fragrance, taste & shape..
    true basmati is grown in India and Pakistan, altho many hybrids are grown elsewhere, including the US
    (ie Texmati, grown in Texas)

    or

    jasmine, the fav from Thailand, has more "sticky starch" (amylopectin) than other long-grain rice, is why it's so moist and tender..grown in both asia & US


    as for GI differences, well there you are splitting hairs
    when I reduce cals tho, i'm trying to get all the nutrition packed in that I can

  11. Subscribed way late to this. Don't worry I saw the title and it summarized all the previous comments!

  12. Also, some of your food porn pics look like my entire produce department.

    Thank you. Great response.

    My question would be, because these two (basmati and Jasmine) are neither bleached nor enriched, would the rate of absorption really be that different (when consumed with protein/fats)?

    I appreciate your response. Most people instantly say the above.

    wellll..I just did find this:

    Basmati has half the glycemic index of jasmine.
    surprise!

    So higher glycemic load means faster to convert into sugar.

    Is glycemic index the same thing

    no

    GI is guide for the rate at which carbohydrate content is absorbed into the blood stream
    is it nice guideline but is flawed, as it will often overstate the impact of small portion of carb

    GL essentially takes into consideration both the portion size of food and it's impact on blood sugar (GI), gives a more accurate idea of true impact

    basically like this:
    the GL is: the portion size of food + that GI value of the food = net impact on blood sugar..

    Thanks again snags. I appreciate it.

    So what we're getting at is basmati is slightly slower digesting than Jasmine?

    I would surmise that basmati is not far off brown rice in that aspect - just less nutrients

    jasmine def looks to bring up the rear in GI value..

    I only tried the basmati myself this yr, after using brown/jasmine mostly for past yr (and brown only prior to that)

  23. preWO sustenance



    this lil concoction is:
    1 scoop Ignite2 (berry blast flav)
    2 scoops BCAA+SAA (apple fusion)
    6 uncapped Max Pump
    a pinch of ginger root extract (my own addition)

    the berry blast/apple fusion combo actually goes pretty well together, and the ginger compliments
    (too much can be overpowering, gotta watch it)

    Damn, that is quite similar, if not identical to my PWO concoction (-ginger root extract). I must be on the right path.

  28. niiice guys
    and - ironic monte!



    wow, so I'm not a big fan of pulling leg days following tennis - even if tennis was not full-out just yet
    my knees were a bit sore, legs achy in general, so warmed up with some light cardio (10min) and leg extensions before hitting my squats (heavy, wide-stance)..followed with walking BB lunges in my driveway, was pretty toasted so I skipped RDLs and went to 6 sets of torso-raised leg curls and finished with 3 sets GHRs, before hitting single-leg DB calf raises, light cardio cooldown to finish

    was good session, considering..pretty wobbly..strength was fine, stamina just not quite where I want it consistently yet
    resting for a minute now (postWO feedings) then it's off to mow my yard

    I got tennis again tomorrow morning if the weather holds
