since I'm going to start this week I started to read a bit more about
insulin spike, pwo fast carbs etc..
Now I'm gonna start having a carb refeed day a week, I say start because I haven't been doing it
despite in a very low carb diet all year round, out of paranoia..
Anyways, you read everything and the opposite and I start getting a bit confused on the carbs/insulin subject,
so I'd like to see what's your thoughts on 2011.
Goal: *lean gains*, nothing massive, I have around 4/5% BF and I want to keep it that way,
so here the questions:
- The whole "you need high GI carbs pwo to get the insulin spike" thing is bs, right?
PWO we just need carbs, the cleaner the better (aside from whey, crea, beta and/or any other supps we might take, I'm talking about carbs..)
because after workout the muscle are rimed to receive nutrients, correct?
Now, assuming that's a fact, are high GI carbs pwo bad?
- If so, why do we take supplements that mimic insulin?
Insulin shuttles carbs/nutrients into muscles? <---- But if that's true, then why the high GI carbs pwo (which will spike insulin) is bad?
I'm sure I'm missing something stupid, I'm here to learn so thank to everyone who'll chime in
