    postWO nutrition was a bit more traditional today:
    100g carbs/50g protein, 625cal shake
    concoction was
    1 scoop Cell Shock
    1 scoop weight gainer (i don't use these really, but got some from my supply dude free, works for postWO)
    1tbs brown rice syrup
    1/4c oats
    40g isolate

    eat regular meal ~90min later

  4. Okay all caught up, awesomeness is afoot in here! Great shot standing outside Snags! Things are looking good, sorry for being out for a bit I have been sick as a dog for most of this past week. Slinging 125's on incline is great stuff, I have not lifted heavy on DB's in so long... I don't know that I have ever slung the 125's on incline though... Someone in here is a bit of a bad ass!

    , sorry for being out for a bit I have been sick as a dog for most of this past week.
    never have to apologize for being sick bro!
    I ain't that much of a slave-driver...

    really - felt pretty damn light
    (it wasn't, but my mental side was just really locked in this day, made effort seem easy)

    I LOVE basmati rice. Between that and Jasmine I won't eat any other rice.. **** all the brown rice fan boys.

    Side note: that's a large looking half cup :P

  9. i do like brown rice too
    will switch solely to that at some point

    Why? I feel like it's not much different from basmati.I just hate brown rice. Hard to eat, harder to digest

    taste-wise, white basmati is great no doubt
    nutritionally however, no white rice comes close to touching brown rice - at all, basmati included
    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

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

  22. 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..
