    More PWO Low-GI Proof- New research!


    I got some journals in the mail today!

    The Metabolic Responses to High Carbohydrate Meals with Different Glycemic Indices Consumed During Recovery from Prolonged Strenuous Exercise

    Emma Stevenson; Clyde Williams; Helen Biscoe

    Abstract
    This study investigated the metabolic responses to high glycemic index (HGI) or low glycemic index (LGI) meals consumed during recovery from prolonged exercise. Eight male, trained athletes undertook 2 trials. Following an overnight fast, subjects completed a 90-min run at 70% VO2max. Meals were provided 30 min and 2 h following cessation of exercise. The plasma glucose responses to both meals were greater in the HGI trial compared to the LGI trial (P < 0.05). Following breakfast, there were no differences in the serum insulin concentrations between the trials; however, following lunch, concentrations were higher in the HGI trial compared to the LGI trial (P < 0.05). This suggests that the glycemic index of the carbohydrates consumed during the immediate post-exercise period might not be important as long as sufficient carbohydrate is consumed. The high insulin concentrations following a HGI meal later in the recovery period could facilitate further muscle glycogen resynthesis.

    Wanna stay lean? Low-GI is the way to go...

    I recently decided to ignore the low-gi post workout information and went with dextrose and maltodextrin. Man, 120g. of simple carbs four times a week makes you fat quick.

    Agreed. I, like you, am a converted High-GI fan. Actually this online "trainer" used to have me stop by the gas station on my way home from the gym to drink a 20 oz Coke. Damn..

    480 grams of malto will definitely crucify your fat loss goals.

    Not according to his videos and his website and just about every article I've ever read on the guy.

    He eats stuff like shredded potatoes, oatmeal with some real cane sugar, oat bars and rice cakes. He says he gets about 300 carbs. If he works out a second time he gets 150-200 carbs after that one.

    Question -- any particular reason that you all grind up your oats before adding it to your pw shake? Can't you just blend that **** in with water/whey?

    Why not just cook the goddamn oatmeal and eat it in a bowl? It takes all of 10 minutes... I have a full time job, a part time job, go to school, and work out, and even I have time to fix a ****ing bowl of oatmeal 3 times a day on workout days...

    Depends on your personal preference, how good your blender is, and how thick your protein mix is.

    If your mix is thin and your blender doesnt cut up the oats you get 'oat sludge' at the bottom. Pre-grinding makes it easier to mix in.

    Oats get a lot of praise on this board. It doesn't have to be oats and it doesn't have to be something you can throw in a liquid shake. Whole foods work fine.

    Yeah, oats and sweet potatoes are about all I eat for carbs lately. oats are easy as hell to use (blender + milk + scoop of whey) and sweet potatoes are similar. 6-8 mins in the microwave and BAM good ass tasting sweet potato

    I prepare 2 cups brown rice with 4 cups low sodium chicken broth and some seasonings. Makes 6 cups cooked rice that I keep in a big ziplock in the fridge to portion out with my daily rations. No need for a rice cooker IMO.

    As for the cooking the oats thing, I believe cooking raises the GI some? I know el dente pasta has a lower GI than fully cooked. I could be wrong about the oats. Anyone?

    Not at all. The prices is dependent mostly upon how big you want.
    I bought mine 3 years ago from Chinatown in SF. It is a 4 cupper and has a warm feature so the rice just sits in there all the time.

    Cooking oats has no effect on the GI...I have heard if you grind them up real fine it could raise it some, but not enough to have any real effect..

    I bought a rice cooker for about $10 at a local drugstore. Works great. Well worth the money.


    There are definitely tons of great low GI carb options.

    I've seen them for less than $20 for a fairly decent sized rice cooker.
