    Sure. All of those high gi carbs in your postworkout shake are going to cause a massive surge in insulin. The insulin will cause glucose to be rapidly cleared from your blood which could cause your blood sugar levels to drop below normal.

    By ingesting a low gi carb source within an hour of your shake you'll be supplying a steady flow of carbs into your bloodstream to stabilize blood sugar.
    can i just varify something....... why is this necessary?


  2. Low blood sugar will leave you feeling lethargic and likely cause you to have some carb cravings. If you don't supply the carbs to restore blood sugar glucagon will trigger their release from the liver and then once the liver is depleted of glycogen it will go to the muscles for glucose via gluconeogenesis.

    Someone else may have to clarify the glucagon process, its something that I'm still fuzzy on.
