    Post workout, low-GI carb sources?


    I apologize if this has been discussed before, but it's tough to search for GI information on a board search.

    I'm switching my post-workout nutrition to low-GI carbs. I've been using one scoop of high-GI gatorade powder for almost a year now and I've seen no VAT reduction with an otherwise clean diet. I'm working too damn hard to feel bloated all the time. I want to see if the carbs may be the reason. Besides ground oats, what are some other low-GI carbs I can put into a shake? I follow the PW shake with a bowl of oatmeal and a whey shake about 1.5 hours later...

    I only use skim milk and whey, no carb source other than the lactose in milk (which seems to be a mild GI and has arguably low lipogenicity. That, in combination with the small insulin spike from whey is convincing enough for me to not add another carb source.

    Sweet potato/yams are fairly low GI. Just look at "good" carb sources you normally use. Also, barley, and other fiberous grains.

    Wouldnt using milk completley slow down the insulin spike given by the whey either way?

    I make a whey shake, throw it in the blender with some oatmeal and voila.

    I'm all about these during meals, but I'm talking in my post-workout shake. I hit the gym before work then I have a 40 min commute...so something to sip on while I listen to Howard Stern.

    As far as oats, I put some in my food processor today, and then put them in a whey shake. Holy gritty. Did I just not ground them up enough? I'd imagine they'd never really dissolve into the whey+water but part of me was hoping they would. If I must, I'll stop being such a ***** and deal with it.

    Anything else I can throw into a whey+water shake? I'd use milk but having just bought a house I'm cutting costs wherever I can until I get used to having $1500 less per month.

    Thanks as usual guys.

    I always grind 1/2 cup of oatmeal in a food processor and make my shake ahead of time. When I'm ready to drink it, the oatmeal has soaked up alot of the water and it goes down easy.
